Neurologist told me I'm fine, I don't need a Neuro because my EMG & Nerve Conduction were both normal. However this is the very first time I have ever tested positive on my ANA Test. She wrote me a prescription for physical therapy for my balance issues.
So where do I go from here, part of me just wants to forget about all the symptoms and just live, the other part knows something isn't right.
I would have liked some type of an answer as to why I feel so badly, instead I got hey you had a brain tumor, your ultra sensitive to your body now....
I would recommend you find an MS Specialist. A Nerve Conduction is not as sensitive as an evoked potential. As far as the Revised McDonald Criteria, did she follow it? What evidence has she provided that pushes you away from MS?
MS diagnosed since October 3, 1982
MS onset circa 1977

Eternally blessed and eternally optimistic!<><
I sense your frustration. The fact that a neuro saw you and did the two tests probably means that in that respect, everything IS fine...but you can have normal EMGs and nerve conduction tests and still have MS..
You really do need to see a MS specialist= there are other tests which can be performed and I dont know how long its been since your last MRI - but it should be repeated and read by a MS specialist at this time..
If you just tested positive for ANA, I would recommend you see a rheumatologist. Lupus can cause neuro symptoms, and many patients are initially sent down the MS pathway. There are several symptoms that overlap and both are autoimmune disorders. Good luck, I hope you get some answers soon.
