Hi just wondering…I was diagnosed in May 2017, and told I’d have a 6/12 follow up. No appointment yet but that doesn’t surprise or concern me. Things have settled for the time being thankfully. I was just wondering though, how often do you usually have an MRI? Neuro didn’t mention that I’d be having one at this next appointment…so how will he/I know if anything has changed? I haven’t had another relapse, so great…but my first MRI showed a LOT of lesions despite me presenting with my first symptoms (aged 35 at the time). So clearly things were happening that I wasn’t aware of.
It just concerns me slightly because I opted not to start DMDs as we want to expand our family, on the proviso that I would start them if my MS turned out to be rapidly progressing (ie I had another big relapse within 2 years). I just think if I don’t have an MRI and have no new symptoms…it will just be assumed that nothing has changed, when it might have. What is your experience with frequency of MRI?
