Dr. stated possible early MS

Hi,
I have been a reader on this board but started in back surgery.
I had imaging done for some facial numbness and tingling stuff like that
Doc sayd lots going on would like to refer me to Neuro. I said I'll just wait and repeat imaging in 3 months and go from there too many other things going on.
So here is a brief summary:
The structure seen on study jul 23 in left posterior occipital area does not enhance this may represent a small area of nonspecified microangiopathy an active demyelinating or dysmyelinating disease follow up is suggested.

My spouse thinks go to neuro I say it didnt say you have something definitively so I'd rather wait. With the vast experience of this board what do you think?
Thanks alot

Re: Dr stated poss. early MS

Welcome to the MS board.

I think that you should get this clarified as the results suggested follow-up. Just to be sure, however, please make sure that you see the MS Specialist. If your MRI was without contrast, you might be asked to have another with and without contrast or you may be asked for another if 2-3 months pass before you can see an MS Specialist.

To me, I would want to know earlier before it became an issue. Once the symptoms start rolling through your life, you start to question you sanity as well as others who doubt your sanity. For the sake of avoiding limbo land, I would encourage you to go and get checked. You might have nothing or something entirely treatable. Sadly, some easily treated problems are dismissed and the patient might have permanent damage. Is this your case? I do not know, but I do know that I wish I had known about my disease before I had started down my career path. The fewer obstacles the better!

If you have questions, let us know!

I would suggest going to the neuro too for a follow up. It may be something else entirely which I hope is the case. Or if it is MS, like Jayhawk says, it is a good thing to know in advance so that easily treated symptoms can be addressed early before possibly becoming permanent.
