The neuro sent me for an MRI which came back positive for MS, (little white spots on the brain). He told me in no uncertain terms that I have MS, although he could not or would not tell me what type of MS I have. He wanted to put me on Betaseron. I said no thanks. I saw a 2nd neurologist about 7 years ago. She sent me for a spinal tap which also came back positive for MS. She also wanted to put me on Betaseron but again I declined. She was also unable to tell me what type I have, even though I told her that I have never had a relapse or a remission.
I've heard that neuros don't like to dx ppms because the insurance companies won't pay for the meds unless you have rrms.
