Hi, I am new to this forum and would really like some advice.
I recieved a medical report (that had been lost in the system for 16 months) which was meant for my pain management specialist that I should’ve got after my brain and cervical MRI in May last year that says there are some hemispheric white matter lesions and a left cerabellar peduncle lesion. The distribution raises the possibilty of demylenation and satisfies the McDonald criteria for dissemination in space.
I had absolutely no idea what that meant so googled it and found out that it could mean I have MS. I have spoken to the consultant that I saw for the tests and he has said that I would need another MRI before a diagnosis of MS can be made but I am worried because I had a completely normal results from my MRIs in 2009 and now they are saying I have 10 lesions, temporal lobe lesions and periventricular lesions (medial to the left ventricular trigone) There are firther lesions within the left cerabellar peduncle.
I was hoping that somebody here would be able to help me out and put it in a way that I understand. I have been referred again to neurology for further testing but the waiting is really stressful. I haven’t even been able to talk to a dr about what the results mean for me and been told it could be a month before they can get me an appointment.
