They tell you not to go on the web but what you ment to do when your feeling lkke this and have to wait a year to be seen x Thank you Gina
I was diagnosed with CIS last year after a lesion was found in the c7 region. I hsve had two further MRIs with contrast… No lesions in the brain and the single lesion in the c7 is showing very faintly now so seems to have diminished.
I had three incidents about 15-16 years ago with numb hands and blurred vision… These were put down to mononeuritis multiplex. No lumbar puncture was done. MRI was clear.
And then nothing til last year when I had muscle spasms in both legs and weakness/neuropathy in both arms and across my back and my chest. The neurologist thinks I have some form of mononeuritis multiplex as well as CIS. I think I hsve MS. I also think it’s going to be hard getting a correct diagnosis and getting on the right meds. I’m seeing the neuro tomorrow so if anyone has any questions I should be asking please let me know.
