It's been about 4 years since your post, and I am going through something similar. Today, was the first day that I received the first set of results, where they found white matter inflamed on the front lobes. I now have to make an appointment with another specialist to find out more. But I would guess it will be similar to your story since I have many of your symptons.
Yes, I will have been officially diagnosed with MS for 3 years on February 5th of this year. I was quickly diagnosed (using the MRI film from the neurologist that I referred to in this thread) by an MS specialist! The clinic where those MRI tests were made, MISSED more lesions on my cervical spine and even missed ACTIVE ENHANCING lesions! *rolls eyes* So my DX was very obvious to the MS specialist. I would recommend that anyone who suspects they may have MS, go the extra distance if needed and see an MS specialist! General neurologists just often don't diagnose appropriately!
So as far as my symptoms, I have many at this point and have had some bad relapses. I have lesions on my brain, cervical spine and also my brain stem ... which isn't good!
I hope you can get all the answers you need, Phil!
