I was recently referred back to my Neurologist as symptoms persist following a normal MRI head scan.
Following another physical examination, EEG, EMG and Nerve Conduction Studies have been ordered.
The consultant is absolutely fantastic and I have utmost confidence in all he is doing to help. I am however puzzled as to why an MRI of my spine has not been ordered and did not think to enquire about this during the appointment.
I realise that we may be barking up the wrong tree with suspicions about MS given the countless mimics. Furthermore, the tests that I have now been put forward for do not seem to fit in with the status quo insofar as diagnosis of MS is concerned.
Is anyone able to shed light? Do these tests indicate suspicion of a diagnosis other than MS?
I assume that problems were found during physical examination of me that are considered to warrant the cost of running further tests? I am aware that I could not feel a tuning fork vibrating on my feet but have no idea what significance this has?
Despite the questions raised, I am of course relieved and pleased that further tests are being conducted and I am not being dismissed.
Thanks in advance
