Hi Tizzie, sorry you didn't get any definite news today, but I think you are burying some positive stuff here.

He's sending you for a full body scan. This can only be good news. I assume as well as looking for other stuff, they will also be looking for lesions on brain and spine. They are also trying to eliminate any other cause for your symptoms, which is normal when looking a possibility of MS. 

18 months feels like a hell of a long time, but actually it's not that long when waiting for a dx. I waited over 2 years for a dx of ppms, and many people wait much longer.

I realise knowing this does not actually make it easier for you to live with, but you have not been dismissed by the neuro and they are continuing investigation. It's a good thing. 

One day at a time eh? And keep in mind that things are moving forward. Hopefully you'll get some definite answers from the full body scan.

Just wanted to reiterate what Pat said - it's incredibly frustrating to feel like you aren't moving forward, but it does sound like this latest neuro really wants to work out what's going on. That's got to be a positive thing.

I hope you get some answers very soon.

Hang in there!

Hi Tizzie,

I know limbo is very very frustrating.  I was there for almost 3 years. 

Take some comfort in the fact you're being sent for a full body scan, it means you're being taken seriously.  So many people in limbo have to scream, shout and stomp for someone to take notice of them.

It is a step in the right direction.
