Haha, I see I’ve taken so long to type this that I’ve been overtaken by events! But I’ll post it anyway…
We used to have a regular poster who had qualifications in neurology - she did the “Brief beginner’s guide to the brain and MRI” sticky you see further up this page.
But even she was not a practising healthcare professional, but an academic. Nobody here is a neurologist or radiologist - that I know of. And if they were, I wouldn’t blame them at all for shutting up about it. They’d be inundated with queries just like yours, and there would be all sorts of professional and ethical issues about whether they could give medical opinions to strangers on the internet, and what the standing of those opinions would be - e.g. would it be OK as long as they made clear they were answering in a purely personal capacity (I suspect not)? Could they be sued if they were wrong? Does it bring the profession into disrepute to give medical opinions to people who are not your patients - especially if they conflict with those of the patient’s own doctor?
As you can see, it’s quite a minefield. I don’t know if professionals do look in here from time to time (it would be nice to think they try to get a taste of the patient’s side of life), but if they do, I’d be very, very surprised if they would stick their neck out and admit publicly to being a neurologist (or whatever) and start giving advice. There’s almost certainly something in the professional code of conduct about that.
All I can say is that if you do, in fact, have MS, it won’t just go away (as I’m sure you know), and eventually the truth will out.
As I say, I couldn’t view your pictures anyway, for some reason, but I strongly suspect I still wouldn’t be able to recognise a lesion if it was jumping up and down screaming: “I am a lesion!” Since diagnosis, I have tried to educate myself - to the extent a layperson reasonably can - about MS and the workings of the CNS. I thought it was in my interests to understand my own illness as far as possible. But I still can’t spot my own lesions! It doesn’t help that there were literally hundreds of frames, only half-a-dozen of which (allegedly!) contained a lesion, so my chances of finding them just by browsing through all the frames were about the same as finding a needle in a haystack.
Even if I - or anyone here - looked at the pictures and said: “Hmmm, you might be right”, what would that mean for you? You couldn’t use the opinion of an interested amateur in your case to the GP, could you? But I see your GP has consented to a second opinion anyway (should you want one), so probably not too relevant what anyone here thinks!
All the best with it!
