This was my first step in getting to the bottom of things. After that VEP, MRI (brain), lumbar puncture, MRI (C and T spine).

as far as i understand it, they are looking for peripheral nerve damage before they get into central assessments on mri etc

I hated the nerve conduction tests. I am a wimp though. Mine all came back normal.
