Re: diagnosis w/out all criteria
I was diagnosed with no lesions,test results evoked potentials abnormal,the high IgG synthesis,high myelin basic protein,a VNG its like a evoked potential for the hearing came back with brain stem lesions.The brain MRI did show atrophy consistant with MS.I have INO a nystagmus consistant with MS paitients.
I got frustrated with my first 3 neuro's saying yes its MS,but can't treat it because theres no lesions.I had gotten a letter from a local clinic that a new neuro had come to the clinic and would I like to make an appointment with him,so i did.I took everything to him MRI's , blood test results,evoked potential results,he done his exam and said you definatly have MS and told me to get informed about the crabs.I start rebif this afternoon.
He said it would slow the progression,I have lost part of the use of the right leg,hearing loss,muscle spasms,vision problems ,numbness and a host of other annoying symptoms.
I am in Ohio.
