if you are on the verge of bankruptcy, then don't get another expensive inconclusive mri. it could take ages for the chronic broken processes to develop to the point where you hit all the items (eg the right pattern of lesions on mri) on the doc's checklist of mainstream diagnostic criteria.
here's the thing, and i know you are at your wit's end, we get it and many of us have been there... yes there are diagnostic criteria for ms. but, without going for yet another wildly expensive test, you can just take data you have on file right now, and see if you match an ms patient profile, or not.
so without trying anything like diet, let's just deal with pure information you already have, that could help you gain confidence re what is going on.
fact: ms patients have a known, researched, published set of nutrient issues. these do not form part of the mainstream diagnostic criteria, and at best are considered as part of a differential dx on a patient by patient basis.
given this fact, you could gain more confidence re having ms or developing it in future by examining your records to find out if they specifically match the profile of an average ms patient. if in fact your levels match those of a healthy control, then i would say you have even less reason to keep going after expensive ms tests.
i have yet to run into an ms patient, or any other patient for that matter, with perfectly healthy nutrient levels. i would be very interested to see if you are the first.
yes, on paper almost everyone's levels are 'fine'. but the sick ones are more often low-normal and the healthy ones high-normal. (or even just plain 'high' given the common pitfalls associated with lab testing).
odd sx? no dx? check w/ dietitian
DRI=MINIMUM eg bit.ly/1vgQclQ
99% don't meet these. meds/lifestyle can affect levels
status can be low in ms & other cond'ns
'but my results are normal'. typical panels don't test all
deficits occur in 'normal' range
