I was in Hospital for a while back in June , and on my discharge paperwork , and i quote " clinically Isolated Syndrome Inflamation on the brain and spinal cord .
I have read that word for word of my discharge paperwork , now it goes on , and i quote this has been brought on by Transverse Myelitis .
Now while i was in Hospital i had all the tests 3 mri scans , lumbar puncture , blood tests , and was put on a drip and fed steroids for three days . I had one doctor say it was ms and one say it was all the above .
Now fast forward to 05 Oct just gone i was called in to see my neuro doc who is the ms specialist , we spoke then he flicked on the screen showed me all the damage to both brain and spine and diagnosed me with ms on the spot , due to the past history as well .
So if that makes sence to you and sounds familiar then it may put your mind at rest or not . Another thing not all neuros are specialists in ms , the one who wrote out my discharge paperwork was an expert in epelepsy not ms , the guy i saw in Oct was an ms specialist hence the very quick dx .
Im only going on what happened to me what was said and what my outcome was . I hope and pray yours is different , but it does sound like a mirror image .
Best Wishes Iain .
