Hi there just wondering if anyone can help or suggest anything. I have got MS myself but a friend of mine has been having issues over a number of years which are increasingly getting worse. They include the following:-
Constant Sciatica (recent)
Balance problems/fall over a fair bit - over 15 years
Pins & needles/numbness on occasion
Dropped foot - last few years (getting worse)
There may be others but i don’t know about them.
They have had an MRI scan on their spine and legs plus a brain MRI and nothing showed up. They have also had electrical nerve tests done which only showed a minor issue.
Neurologist seems to be useless and is putting it all down to back problems from years ago due to their job. I’m adamant its a neurological problem and i think they think so too.
What other tests can be done? anyone suggest? Or anyone had similar issues in getting a diagnosis. Doctors just don’t seem to want to help.
Any help would be greatly appreciated x
