OK: i didn't think the VEP test could tell me anything really until it was accompanied by the MRI... but here goes. This dr has had personal experience with two staff members who have MS and uses the VEP testing often.
Results: first off this DR does NOT Dx MS, that being said... my left eye has had the most difficulty... the test measures 3 different brain waves from an electrode on your forehead, one on the temple to the back of the brain another electrode. The test was so messed up I literally came out of the office and went back to the testing room to do the test a second time. It showed the same. My rt eye had 1 normal wave and 2 abnormal. My left eye showed 1 abnormal and 2 did NOT read.
Dr notes: very suspicious, recommend MRI to find plaques in gray matter. W shaped wave from OD (left eye) and possible OS (right eye) indicative of possible MS. -A third page stated- Suspicious for neuro defect.
He went further to say the wave is shaped like a W in which 45% of MSers have so the test would definitely SUPPORT a Dx if the MRI showed anything. He is also very familiar with the neuro I will be seeing also...
well- OK... MRI Friday. Thank you all so much for being on here. Hope this can help someone... I love reading posts on here that helps me think this is all going to be fine... cause no matter what- it will be
