My GP referred me for an MRI scan of my brain as I questioned whether the symptoms I have could be MS. I have been with him this morning to get my results. “Some spots of white matter are showing, nothing extraordinary for someone born in 1965, lesions are not uncommon”. I did question whether that’s 100% sure then that it isn’t MS. He told me if he had an MRI scan it would look the same as he is a similar age.
So, before I go off skipping (I only wish I were able) into the future I thought I’d gather some input from here. I haven’t seen a neurologist or had any other tests (that’s the full picture). GP is happy to refer me to a musculoskeletal team to see if they can help manage my joint pain - seems I have to put up with the bowel incontinence, stumbling, vertigo, nerve pain. Perhaps this is what to expect at the grand old age of 53!
Can I confidently leave things at this do you think?
