Waiting

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

Waiting

So I did my LP on Friday and all results are back except the MS and CSF FungCult reports. All of the other screenings came back fine. Does that point things in a positive light for the MS results or is it not related?

I had a brain scan in the hospital which showed too much white brain matter relative to gray matter for someone of my age (56 at the time). The hospital neuro did a spinal tap, which came back clean, and I was basically given a clean bill of health. A few months later my symptoms got worse and I went to different neuro who is a social friend, and ended up with the MS dx. He felt that since I was still in the mild stages of MS it had not yet migrated to the spinal cord, with the implication it might show up there later.

But, to answer your specific question, it is a positive sign but it does not rule out MS.

How long did it take for your diagnosis? What I mean is hot long were you symptomatic before you were Dx'ed?
