I’m undergoing tests for Multiple Sclerosis. I’ve had a CT scan which was clear, a Lumber puncture which was clear and seen a Neurologist who said that my neurological reflex tests were good. I’ve been tested for optical neuritis which was also clear.
I had an MRI scan 12 months ago because of persistent headaches which states this:
No ishemic infarction, intracranial heamorrhage or space-occupying lesion. A few hyperintense foci on T2WI and FLAIR sequences in periventricular deep white matter, a non specific finding.
Impression: no ischemic infarction, intracranial haemorrhage or space occupying lesion.
Now ive just had an MRI following an episode of tingling in hands and feet and pain behind left eye for 2 weeks…the recent MRI states this:
No imaging of a mass lesion.
Single white matter rounded hyperintensities inferior right frontal lobe and posterior left frontal lobe INSUFFICIENT to suggest demyelination.
No significant abnormality elsewhere in the brain, brain stem or CERVICAL cord. No evidence of optic neuritis or orbital pathology.
I saw my Neurologist on Tuesday who carried out examinations and sent me for ANOTHER MRI of my head, cervical spine and thoracic spine. He said the hypertensities could be just age spots but I’m only 34.
This waiting and not knowing is awful. Im really anxious. Sorry for the long post.
