My story of MRI scans is:
3 years ago i was in hospital with a double cavity pneumonia, in hospital for 3 weeks
Cut a long story short and after 750 different antibiotics pumped into me to find a cure for the strain of pneumonia i had, lets just say my immune system no longer existed.
My last week in hospital i was up & walking but started to complain about a dragging foot. The doctors looked into. Took even more blood samples & more student nurses proding & poking me. They found something unusual so sent me for an MRI.
The scan showed lesions on my spine, so they sent me to Walton for a Lumber Puncture. Results came back… PPMS
So in 3 years and after a totaly melt down in my immune system, i find myself on an MS forum.
Maybe i was lucky to get the MRI & LP straight after each other, and a full diagnosis. Rather than the: showing signs of Demyelination (the word they use before MS), It was all a bit quick for me to take in.
But after them all being soooooo concerned what was wrong, they finally had their answer… But since then, they have all just left me to get on with my life and have never to this day contacted me again. It seemed to be a war at the time between caring medical students questioning Neurologists theories and Neurologists having an ego boost.
