Hi my name is Dennise and I want to tell you a Little bit about my story. I am 35 years old. Back in 2011 I had a lot of headaches so I had a MRI scan. In the scan they found a little spot of demyelization, so was called to have a Clinically isolated syndrome. That was when my fear of ms started because I have two uncles that had the disease.
One year later I had another mri just to check and they found another spot of demyliating demyelization. Since the spot was not hyperintense the doctor said it is still a clinically isolated syndrome and I didn´t present any other symptom but the headache.
Every year I have been having the same MRI since then with no difference.
I have my first baby now and is 8 months old. And I am a little worried because I have been feeling some tingling in my back and especially in my right foot and leg. I had a MRI taken 3 weeks ago and it is the same with those two spots, nothing different.
My neurologist says in order to be MS I should have a lesion and that my MRI scan doesn´t show anything new and It could be something else.
I know that after my pregnancy I have gained 30 pounds that I am trying to loose and I had some problems with my sciatica. The truth is that I am terrified because I don´t think this tingling is normal and now I am feeling a little bit on my left hand too.
Please let me know what you think.
