Here's my story, about 4 months ago my wife woke up with blurriness in her right eye, she immediately went to see an eye doctor, vision was fine 20/20, ran some optic field tests, and saw something, then sent her to a optic neurologist, he diagnosed her with optic nuritis. He sent her for a MRI, with dye injected to spot any flare up's. The results came back with 3 brain lesions. The optic nueroligist told her she had a 53%-58% chance of getting MS. Obviously very alarming! He referred us to a MS specialist. We went and this doctor was extremely cold and insensitive, he gave her all types of finger to nose and walking tests which she had no problems with, and then viewed her MRI, he told us she had a 80% chance of getting MS and should get on med's immediately, (even way more alarming) did not like his bedside manners one bit, nor his explanation on the 80% chance of getting MS, he said everybody had different %'s. On what basis???? Went for a second opinion, this time to a general nueroligist who was highly recommended (25 years of experience) not a MS specialist. He gave her the same coordination test, which were all fine, and looked at her MRI, he agreed that along with the optic nuritis and the 3 brain lesions their was a possibility of developing ms, but not necessarily. He's aid the lesions could be from many different things and she could have had them for many years. His suggestion was to have a MRI every 4-6 months to monitor any new ones, and obviously pay attention to any new symptoms. After this visit, we felt a lot better, but he did recommend seeing the ms specialist in his health system, which we did. Now we also had blood work done which didn't show anything out of the ordinary. Went to other specialist, same coordination tests, looked at MRI, and basically diagnosed my wife with early stages of MS, no %'s, just a diagnose. She broke down, and was extremely upset, i've been with her at every visit, and I had a hard time undertanding how this last doctor could so easily give her this diagnosis without ruling everything else out. This is a life changing diagnosis and he gave iit her like it was a sinus infection, very disturbing for both of us. She is my soulmate and I felt her sadness deep in my heart when he told her this. He immediately suggested she get on med's, we listened and took down all the info and left very upset and frustrated. She had no other MS symptoms, exercises and has a Very heathy diet, mother of two, 13 and 10, which also keeps her very active! We decided to take a break from doctors, we have prescription for another MRI in 4 months, which we will have and then seek out another doctor. We live in palm beach county,FL. We are not the kind of people that are in denial and we want to be very proactive in addressing this problem, but to begin med's without the full understanding of what's going on, and especially since she has no other symptoms is a huge pill to swallow. The med's r a life long commitment. If anyone has any input on this, it would be greatly appreciated. Thanks for listening.
