Is it hard to get diagnosed with MS

My MRI shows demyelinating lesions and still not being diagnosed. I've been experiencing symptoms.

Hi. Sorry to hear your experience, so far. There is diagnostic criteria that neurologists follow. I think it is the MacDonald criteria. There are posts on YouTube by an American neurologist called Dr Boster. He explains the diagnostic criteria. He says that the neurologist has to prove through MRI that it is MS, whilst proving it isn’t a load of other conditions. There are two American neurologists that post on YouTube, they are Dr Boster and Dr Brandon Beaber. Good luck.


There are many different disorders that follow restive close criteria. I hope you figure it out soon.
