I will try to keep this as short as possible. A little over a year ago I started to experience symptoms that were MS related. For the first month it was so bad I had to drop out of college. After about a month most of the symptoms went away except fatigue. This cycle of having new symptoms and them going away but some staying and varying in intensity has been going on for a little over a year. I experience about every symptom that is associated with MS, fatigue, vision problems, numbness and tingling in legs, arms, and hands, balance issues, spasticity, pain, memory and focus challenges, occasional speech problems, tremors, mild hearing loss, breathing trouble, and even lhermitte’s sign. I finally made t to the doctor a few weeks ago, just a regular general neurologist. He ordered me a brain MRI regular and with contrast. It came back normal and that is my problem. I am 90% positive the machine was a T1.5 which I’ve read is crap for finding lesions and diagnosing. I’m not sure why he didn’t order a spinal mri or lumbar puncture but I’ve not had those. I’ve had several things ruled out for diagnosis some being chrones, vitamin b deficiency, celiacs, syphllis, and HIV. I don’t know what to do next. I’d like to see a MS specialist and there is one in my area. I’m wondering if he would want another Brain MRI and order the other tests mentioned above. But I’m also wondering wether seeing an MS specialist is worth it. I believe it’s possible that I have MS, but the brain mri is confusing me. I know that none of you can diagnose me so I’m seeking advice and opinions on what my next move should be. In addition to that, has anyone been diagnosed with MS with a normal brain mri, or have experience getting more than one brain MRI, where one was normal and others showed lesions? Any thoughts and advice are welcome. Thank you!!
