On what basis did your doc diagnose you?

If it's on your mind and it has to do with multiple sclerosis in any way, post it here.

MRI, symptoms and blood work and tests that ruled out other mimics of MS.

My goodness Zoe, what is your Doc waiting for...I think according to most of us you're dx.

I was diag in an ER. I worked there, had a fierce headache, Doc gave me a CT. There were many lesions visible, the only dx from radiologist was ADEM or MS. Doc got an MRI to verify, same 2 possibilities, but the gadolinium response along with symptoms did it.

Along with most women, we can ride along with strange symptoms for years totally ignored by docs. here, take a xanax and an antidepressant.

Are you seeing a specialist in MS? Or University Doc?

Brain biopsy determined suspected tumor is a large demialinating (sp) MS type of lesion. Multiple brain lesions, no C-spine lesions. MS symptoms, tests ruled out other diseases. Positive lumbar puncture.

I presented with the right side of my face paralyzed and double vision. After an MRI, the ER doc said it appears that I have MS. The lesions were very clear and there was no doubt what it was. I likely had the disease much earlier, though no one was able to catch it.
