Welcome to ThisIsMS, Chris (MrChris).MrChris wrote:Would either of these blood tests be relevant for a person diagnosed with MS?
Lesions in the brain are consistent with many conditions, including migraines, vitamin B12 deficiency, etc. – MS is just one of these. (In fact, there are people with all kinds of MS symptoms who have NO lesions on their MRIs; by contrast, there are people who had NO symptoms during their lifetime, who upon autopsy have been found to have LOTS of lesions.) There is no test or symptom that can definitively proclaim "this is MS."MrChris wrote:Here is the testing i went through.
Ct scan with contrast
Blood testing (not exactly sure for what) but is do know that they ran an ELISA and Western Blot
Multiple MRIs with and with out contrast.
Visual evoke potential
And clinical symptoms
It was right after my first mri that the neurologist pointed out that they had found lesions in my brain that they were consistent of those who have MS. From there more testing was ordered. And 5 months later I had an official diagnosis.
