MS is not text book, it’s different symptoms for different people. I am not diagnosed and have different things happening to me, for one thing I have double vision which I have had for a year(it’s beening kept under control by glasses a prism). On here you will be told that a neurologist can only diagnose MS, and most offen it can take time to diagnose.
Seeing the neurologist is just one step, they will lots of tests which will rule out the other symptoms that can be the same as MS, there is no one test that can tell you for sure that you have MS, you may have to wait a little while for you to see a neurologist, I saw mine in October for the first time I had been put forward by the eye hospital which was in July.
He then did lots of hand to eye tests and asked lots of questions about my childhood and any illnesses that i had. The eye hospital booked me in for a MRI first and a few months later I saw the neurologist, he then asked me to have a blood test and lumber puncture and lastly maybe another MRI.
What he found in my MRI was that I had one legion that could be demyelinating disease, he also said that I had 4th nerve palsy in my right eye. I then looked at the quack dr Google not good but it’s not all bad I found my way to this site. I now have to wait until April for my next appointment with the neurologist. (The letter came for that appointment was in December).
So it’s not a quick fix, there is a lot of waiting between appointments they call it here, limboland. Try not to self diagnose and don’t go down the line of a symptom checker. It will frighten the pants off you.
There are a good set of people here that will answer any question that you may have, it’s not all doom and gloom here either, there are lots of people who have MS at different levels and between them they can resure you and buck you up, so you can feel that your not alone. Good luck
