Hi, I’ve recently had a lumbar puncture following a brain scan showing lesions
I had what I thought was labrythitis about 7 years ago resulting in being very dizzy for 3 weeks. I also had blurred vision about 5 years ago. More recently I have had a feeling of pressure in my head and I can feel my pulse which is what started this round of investigations. My balance isn’t the best either.I had a spinal MRI followed by a brain MRI, VEP test and now a lumbar puncture. I have also now got numbness in the side of my knee. The consultant has said it is MS but is awaiting the oglio clonal band test results.
I have told work that the consultant has said it is MS and they know I’ve had a lumbar puncture.
What else do i need to do? My symptoms at the moment aren’t affecting my work but do I need to formally tell them and do they need to do anything as I understand that MS is classed as a disability?
Any advise would be really appreciated.
