I’ve been lurking on here for a while but finally got the courage to post today after receiving my appointment for an mri scan.
5 or so years ago I initially started showing symptoms that resulted in a referral to a neurologist (spasms, tiredness, difficulty walking) and after various tests excluding an MRI the symptoms stopped and I stupidly discharged myself from the care of my neurologist and self diagnosed stress and diet as to the cause.
In February the symptoms returned, at the same time as redundancies were announced at work. Once again I put them down to stress and ignored them, until the symptoms continued after my job was safe. I eventually went to my gp who immediately referred me to a neuro. I had my appointment and have since been booked in for a 3T MRI on Wednesday.
The neurologist has said in his report that it is unlikely to be MS however has still sent me for a scan. On top of all this my symptoms have begun the include localised itch without a rash and peripheral vision being blurred.
So I guess I have a couple of questions really, has anyone else had a similar experience of ‘probably not’ but still been sent for a scan, and is it worth mentioning my progression of symptoms on Wednesday?
