You may remember me as the vain person who asked what to wear to a lumbar puncture. Your advice was heeded and all went well considering.
Got the results of my visual evoked tests back as normal, but the LP shows signs associated with MS, no other information was given, this was in a letter. I am due to see my neurologist but it isnt until July so I wondered if anyone here could answer me queries.
Its looking fairly likely I will get diagnosed with MS. What happens next? I am wondering about medication, I am fairly symptomless at the moment and have been for months, all I have is a tingly hand every so often. I have read that most medication just treats the symptoms anyway so is a drug treatment unlikely at this point? I am due to have a second MRI soon also.
Is there any significance that the visual test was negative and the LP was positive? I’ve read somewhere that the LP is like the gold standard of testing.
I like to think ahead, so after diagnosis, which might not even happen, what do I do? I know I have to contact the DVLA and insurance, but is that it?
