Transcranial Doppler

Did anyone have a trans cranial Doppler done in regard to MS? I went to the neurologist the other day and she did a trans cranial Doppler (results were "a little stiff"?) and now I have a brain MRI, a sleep study and a carotid ultra sound scheduled. I am currently undiagnosed.

Thanks for any information. I'm not sure if this is related to MS or a different condition.

What I want to ask the forum is this: Who ...
