Demand a new MRI and to be sure, a lumbar puncture to extract CSF (cerebro spinal fluid). These will establish if you have MS, particularly if they do a comparison with your 4 year old MRI.


I don’t think that ‘tremors’ are an essential diagnostic feature of MS. In 17 years I’ve never had tremors! I would go back and - see another GP and neurologist and get another MRI.

Thank you as doc said well you dont get them so its not that but i have been reading alot of people havent got them yet.
