Got a letter off my neuro today…
LP: show normal cell count, protein and glucose and were negative for oligoclonal bands
MRI: Cervical and thoracic spinal cord also normal
Bloods: Tests for copper within normal range. Can not see reslts for B12 but would expect this to be normal, will ask secretary to chase them up.
We have therefore not found any evidence for MS or any other pathology.
I shall arrange follow up in clinic in due course.
So it looks like I don’t have MS - I should be leaping for joy! But I’m not! I feel quite deflated. I really thought I’d get answers with these tests, now I am back to square one!! After 4 and half years of symptoms, some permanent, I really feel frustrated!! What is wrong with me then if it’s not MS!!! I still think it is but the evidence says different!
He didn’t mention VEP results. Also at least he hasn’t discharged me, I am getting a follow up appointment.
Jeez, I should be happy!!!
