Further to my last few posts, today I have received a copy of my LP results from the Neuro Consultant who saw me when admitted in July…
Here is an excerpt from the letter
"There were oligoclonal bands seen in the CSF only which is supportive of an inflammatory explanation for your neurological problems, and suggests that the area of abnormality seen in the spinal cord was due to demyelination.
I will arrange for you to be seen in my next available follow-up appointment so we can see how you are recovering from your symptoms since you have had the intravenous steroids, and then we can decide whether or not further treatment will be required."
This now completes the picture along with MRI results showing old and current lesion on spinal cord.
Appt will be 19th October.
Not sure what to make of this … “this suggests” … well is it or is it not due to demyelination!!
My fear is that I have actually identified symptoms going back over the course of 25 years which I never even considered of import as they were so short lived, or only happened once or twice, until the last 12 months where symptoms have been, and still are, constant albeit moving around my body!
I don’t quite know how to feel today I might be dealing with RRMS, or might be dealing with SPMS??
