I saw a neurologist four weeks ago and I am due to have a brain and neck MRI next Thursday. I then have a follow up appointment two weeks after with the neurologist. In his clinic letter to my GP he advised that due to his working diagnosis of demyelinating disease from the combination of central nervous system findings, that if i deteriorated to prescribe Methyl Prednisolone for five days. I have the following questions if anyone can help :-
Does this sound as if it is MS? He said it was likely, but has not specifically said that on the letter.
Does anyone think it would be a good idea to have the Prednisolone? My husband is concerned that we would be treating something unknown, but I feel so awful and if they would help it would be amazing!
After reading lots on here I was expecting it to all be very hard and slow to get to diagnosis - but it seems its only a few weeks away until I know what’s happening! Is it likely he won’t commit to a diagnosis after my MRI results?
Thanks in advance for any advice or answers you can give me!!
