I had an MRI on my brain last Monday as a result of an episode of Optic Neuritis 9 weeks ago.
I saw my neuro today to discuss scan results. He says there are 4-5 lesions on my brain and some whiteness around my optic nerve. I am 27 so he did say that it’s not normal to have them. However, he doesn’t seem worried. He has said there’s not much he can do for now and has discharged me. He has said I should go back to my GP if there’s any drastic change.
I have minimal other symptoms including wet patches sensation on my thighs, internal buzzing, very sharp stabbing pains in my hands and feet and numbeness and tingling in my face. However, none of it impacts on my quality of life.
I should be glad that he’s not worried, but I just feel deflated. I know there’s nothing he can do for now, so I completely understand why he has discharged me. I just feel I will have a cloud of worry over me for a while.
Anyway, I realise I am lucky that things aren’t worse, I just hate the uncertainty.
