Huy guys x I posted the following in Poll’s thread and would really like to know ‘why not’??? xxx
I haven’t been well with symptoms for a few years but it was last November that a couple of consultants started mentioning MS - everything then seemed to fit like a glove!
Like lot’s of others my MRI showed lesions but in the wrong place - and like others my biggest fear is to be left in limbo for years without a diagnosis.
Personally I think that there should be another ‘type’ of MS added to the classifications to cover those people who have MS symptoms & neurological signs but no ‘physical’ evidence in the form of MRI’s or positive LP’s.
I may be being simplistic here but I see no reason not to!!
If everything else has been ruled out - and If it looks like a duck, swims like a duck and quacks like a duck…then it’s highly likely to be a flippin duck!!!
I’ve heard the description Atypical MS - why can’t something like this be added to the classifications???
That way the neuro’s will feel comfortable and people with MS without visible lesions will have a diagnosis and most importantly have support and treatment for their symptoms. They can also then be monitored with MRI’s every year or so to see if anything shows up?
Am I being naive??? xxx jenxxx
