Hey everyone thought I would post with an update. Had second brain MRI yesterday and saw the consultant today. Good news is that there doesn’t seem to be any change in the MRI scan which is good so far so no extra lesions.
What a difference having a good neurologist makes because he arranged for blood tests while I was there. They took 6 tubes from me and are testing lots of things that hadn’t been checked previously including tests for b12 levels, serum levels, calcium, lupus, antibody tests and lots more! He should get the results within the next 2 weeks.
In the meantime he is arranging for an MRI of my spine and my neck. He’s also arranging for me to go in as a day case or possible overnight stay and have VEP, SSEP, PET and also a lumbar puncture - hopefully should be within the next 4 weeks. So by that point I should know further and then be able to start a treatment plan after that and get on meds. He also told me to up my gabapentin and do it gradually so that the body can start to adjust to it.
All I can say is that the neurologist is on the ball and it makes such a difference! Thank god I found him as he knows his stuff! Also he said straight away on a few symptoms that I have that they aren’t linked to ms so there’s definitely something going on and thats why he got all the bloods done straight away and is referring me for tests to be done ASAP!
Anyway wanted to just update
