It all started with numb and tingly legs back in December and in January I was diagnosed with Transverse Myletis, MRI’s of brain and spine showed lesions in both. I have come to terms with the fact that I have 80-90% chance of another episode and then will be properly diagnosed with MS. At the moment I am well apart from a funny pain behind left eye.
I saw a great neuro today who explained my scans and chances of MS and at the moment feel really numb about it all. He wants me to have a Lumber Puncture and has put me forward for one, he said to go away and think about it.
So I wanted to hear from you guys…I know a lumber puncture is going to be a pretty horrible experience but am prepared to do it, what I can’t decide is whether to or not? why get myself all stressed about something when I am so well at the moment??? Dr said it’s useful for when I have another episode so they know what treatment to give me, I replied to this ‘why can’t I wait to see if I have another episode before the lumber puncture’, he says it’s my choice.
What would you do???
