He cant tell you that you have MS as here is not enough evidence. He is a bad doctor with no manners.
If someone’s CSF doesn’t have these proteins, though, they might still have multiple sclerosis – 5% to 10% of people with the condition never show signs in their spinal fluid.
Also, these signs can show up in a number of other diseases, too. So a spinal tap by itself can’t confirm or rule out a diagnosis of multiple sclerosis.g It must be part of the total picture of testing for the disease.
As you also have an elevated IgG index you could have something other then MS. This type of result could be other things, like lymes disease, even lupus.
He is hedging his bets as your MRI was clear. DOESNT mean you dont have MS they just may not have seen a lesion but it might be there.
Also you cant diagnose anyone with a physchological disorder if you have POSITIVE proteins for MS in your csf. How the hell does that work.
You need to see someone else. I would probably wait a few months let the dust settle, go for a physch test it wont hurt and shows willing. Whilst you are having that done you can keep a diary of things going on.
If it is MS it will show itself soon enough, but you cants have functioal disorder with a positive MS protein test. IS this guy going to say it was your brain that put it there lol.
Did you just have head MRI?
