Do I have MS or b12 deficiency?

I have had lesions on my brain mri's normal lumbar puncture test, vision problems, extreme fatigue, depression, leg tremor, muscle spasms at night. How many doc's do I have to go see before I get a diagnosis? this has been going on for 3 years now ever since my gall bladder surgery?

Re: Do I have MS or b12 deficiency?

You should look specifically for an MS specialist (in the field of neurology) who can take a look at your old MRIs and test results to determine the diagnosis. I don't know how close you are to the Mayo Clinic, but they have MS docs there. Just make sure to get copies of your FILMS (not just the reports), and get your records too. Sometimes it's hard to distinguish B12 deficiency from MS, but an MS specialist should be able to. You might also want to post on the MS boards here if you have questions!
