Hi everyone - isn't the weather just toooooo hot!!!
Anyway - story/investigations so far.
1998/1999 - Diagnosed with a case of Optic Neuritis
December 2010 - Optician noticed a serious (in her opinion)problem with visual fields - referred to neuro
January 2011 - First neuro appointment - instructed an MRI and evoked potentials test.
February 2011 - said tests done.
January 2012 - recalled for results of said tests (yes 12 months later!!! - apparently they 'missed' me, despite me ring up). Told I had abnormalities in brain and he instructed an LP and a visual field test.
Today i returned to get the results and he said that the abnormality with brain was inflammation, and the LP also showed this although there were no abnormal cells. He also confirmed I have an enlarged blind spot. After I told him that I have had foot pain and intense itchiness togethr with numb fingers whilst in the shower, he wants me to have another MRI this time to include spine (just had pituatry with contrast last time).
I am relieved that he just didn't come out and say I had a positive LP (didn't sleep a wink last night) but am i right in thinking that he is double checking for signs of MS by asking for a more detailed MRI?
Just unsure about the whole thing really and as usual, didn't ask enough questions in the consultation!
