I recently had an MRI on my brain and was told yesterday that the scan showed signs of repeated inflammation which led to the conclusion that I had the Benign variant of MS.
However, my consultant’s going to be arranging further tests including a lumbar puncture, blood tests and something to do with the electrical signals in my brain. So I’m kinda confused at the moment. Do I have MS, or are they still not sure? I don’t want to mention the diagnosis to friends, family, my employer, and DVLA until it’s sure because I don’t want to have to turn around in a few weeks’ time and say ‘Oh wait, nope, false alarm’.
So I’m really not sure. Should I wait for further tests to be done before I say anything? Do the extra tests mean they’re still not sure?
