Got my diagnosis this morning after a fairly short period of scans etc.
I feel ok at the moment, not upset, just kind of numb like it isn’t happening to me - did anyone else feel like this?
At the moment I am more worried for my family and partner!
Next step is appointment with MS nurse to discuss treatment options then back to see the consultant. I get married in a month so the consultant is happy for me to delay treatment until after the wedding which is good.
If anyone wants to know the steps to my diagnosis, see below. I think mine was pretty straightforward, but I was so impatient and frustrated as I never knew what was happening next.
Referred for spinal scan by consultant.
Spinal MRI showed two lesions.
Referred to neurologist who carried out neuro exam of reflexes, eyes etc
Sent for MRI of cerival spine and brain
Scan showed lesions in the brain
Referred to specialist who carried out another neuro exam and compared the scans - and diagnosed from this.
