Hello! New to the site and new to everything that has been going on with my body!
I have always had daily headaches and frequent migraines. Recently, I started to have dizzy spells and a tingling sensation on the top of my head. Assuming I had some kind of inner ear problem, I went to my GP who sent me to pain management. There, the doctor flicked my finger and tested all of my reflexes, citing that I had tested positive for the Hoffmann's reflex and had "very reactive reflexes". He ordered an MRI of my brain and neck, and while the neck looked "fine", the brain showed a lesion "smaller than a chestnut, but larger than a pea". When I came in to review my results, he mentioned I'd need another MRI of my brain with contrast to see if there was any inflammation, and that I would now be seeing a specialist to get a spinal tap for an official diagnosis and neck injections for the pain.
I literally have all of the signs of MS...particularly fatigue...which has made it very difficult to watch my two young toddlers! I'm only 27 and am very concerned at this point, but curious as to if anyone has experienced a false positive for these tests? Or has anyone gone through something similar? I'm really unsure as to what they would do about the brain lesion regardless of the diagnosis. It's not that fun knowing you've got abnormalities in one of your major organs.
TIA and thanks for reading!
