I do understand how you feel.
As far as frustration with your consultant and lack of a diagnosis Ive felt like that for a long time. But as more and more time passed I did come to understand grudgingly that there seem to be thousands and thousands of neurological mimics, it boggles the mind.
The link not only highlights mimics but why neurologists have to take many things into account when diagnosing like conditions which sometimes have dissemination in space but not time, that sometimes have dissemination in time but not space, which often have dissemination in time/space.
See, mindboggling lol
Don’t get me wrong, I am very frustrated and wonder why neuros wont just make an informed decision with the best information available and let people get treatment and support and most importantly, get on with their lives. But after all these years the frustration became tiresome so I get on as best as possible
I do take issue with your neuro saying you definitely don’t have MS due to lack of lesions, that is just wrong information.
People generally mean well by saying such a stupid thing like was said to you. I think its a misguided attempt to make us feel better : /
