I was diagnosed a month ago with MS. My consultant told me that at the moment I look like I have Progressive MS but it’s too early to say. My MRI has multiple Brain and C Spine lesions. My LP has O Bands. My symptoms started in July with occasional tripping & stumbling and now I get fatiguable foot drop daily. I also now have fatigue issues, numbness and tingling in my hands, constipation and urinary hesitancy.
With hindsight I have been told an episode of bowel problems in 2011 was probably a relapse. Does that mean it can’t be PPMS and is likely to be SPMS. I will ask the neurologist who I see again in June but just wondered what you guys think. My consultant did say it could be a very stubborn relapse but as I am over 8 months into this said that’s unlikely.
