I saw the neurologist today and the nhs MRI said “2 foci of high signal changes adjacent to left frontal horn with morphology of demylenation.” I had a MRI through bendeden and he said “a few non specific White matter changes not thought to be excessive for her age (42). It also showed a slightly larger focus of periventricular White matter abnormality adjacent to the corpus callosum and anterior body of the left lateral ventricle which is thought to be suggestive of demyelination in terms of its location but not morphology.” I saw that MRI and there were 2 small spots and the one he is talking about is larger. My follow up appointment is in a year. Am I reading it wrong as I think they are saying different things?
I’m also annoyed that he gave me a list of blood tests that I need. They are checking for things like lupus and autoimmune conditions. He could have ordered them before and discussed the results then. Now I know what they are thinking but can’t get my blood tested for another 2 weeks.
It has been said that the only reason I have a follow up appointment and is because they are covering themselves as my first scan was a private one. Surely if there was nothing at all of interest on the scans I would have been discharged? I currently don’t have a diagnosis of anything other than demyelination. My LP was fine.
