Confused, Need some advice!
I have recently been for an MRI scan which has shown up pockets of swelling in my brain (mostly the left side), the neurologist is querying MS or ADEM. (Acute Disseminated Encephalomyelitis)
I have had symptoms of dizziness, fatigue, light-headedness, and feeling of just not being with it for over 4 months when I had the scan.
I have been offered a lumber puncture test to see if it is MS but advised by the doctor not to have it done because it makes insurance very expensive once diagnosed.
I have since looked up MS and some symptoms I have been experiencing over the past 2 years i.e. eye pain in right eye, dizziness, fatigue, light-headedness on occasions, hip pain right side, 2 years ago I went to doctor for dizziness was told it was vertigo which lasted about 4 weeks.
I am pretty sure that was MS as I felt the same as I did this time and I think the test is going to be positive.
I don’t know if to have the test done, I know you have to inform the DVLA, insurance etc.
Hope someone can advise me who has had similar experience.
