I'm not on any shots anymore. I do have to make an appt. with my nuerologist now though to do another MRI and another Spinal Tap. The Dr. today at Urgent care said to follow up so either it is MS relapse or an inner ear problem.

Friday, I was somewhat better, Saturday and Sunday I was a lot better. This morning all of a sudden the spells are back, I can't even walk without meeting the walls. Hubby has to work today since he stayed home with me Thursday so I am staying in bed today. The safe place!! How long do these last? Do they come and go like this? This I don't think has ever happened since I was diagnosed 12 years ago. Please help me!!
Blood tests are commonly employed to check for vitamin deficiencies, toxic elements and evidence of an abnormal immune response.
Depending on your individual situation, your doctor may request certain laboratory tests to identify potentially treatable causes for neuropathy. These include tests for:
Vitamin B12 and folate levels
Thyroid, liver and kidney functions
Oral glucose tolerance test
Antibodies to nerve components (e.g., anti-MAG antibody)
Antibodies related to celiac disease
Hepatitis C and B
