Currently awaiting MRI scan results to confirm whether I have MS. Advised by radiology 2 weeks, neurologists now advising there is a backlog with radiology and it will be 6-8 weeks.
I was tested for MS around 8 years ago which was ruled out, I was subsequently diagnosed with ME.
In October 2018 I had some sort of episode where I had severe pain in my head accompanied by slurred speech and loss of function and numbness in my left arm. This episode lasted around 3 months, my gp was concerned this was MS and was either not visible when I was last tested / I was miss diagnosed.
I was finally seen by neurology in June (ironically by the doctor who tested me for MS and diagnosed ME). I was expecting him to confirm there was no chance this was MS, instead he confirmed I need to be tested again for MS.
This has been hanging over me for 10 months and the chances are I will have to wait a further 2 months. Around 6 weeks ago I started to experience constant nerve and function issues with my legs (previously it has been sporadic or when I have walked too much).
Does anyone have any recommendations for expediting this …
I am taking kalms to try and keep me balanced but it’s really getting on top of me.
