Limbo land and results

Hi I'm new to the forum but have been following for a while. Just wondered how any of you received your lp results and how long after? My brain mri showed demylination and the report states Ms however my neurologist disagrees with my report. On examination they found mild left limb weakness and when I asked the cause and what had caused the demylination he said he didn't know. I'm experiencing various symptoms and is effecting my home and work life. Symptoms aren't managed great. I've been off work long term sick and recently returned with adjustments but is tempory. I've not been right for along time and put it down to stress but I've been like this since last May and just need a confirmed diagnosis. Had my lp 2 week ago. My next neuro appointment is due end of May time am expect to wait until then or do I take it no news is good news. I don't want to phone cause they are busy and don't want to be a nuisence. Any advice is much appreciated 🙂

@leanne83 Hi welcome to the club! When I had my LP it took about 4weeks for the results to come back. Not sure where your from, but that seems to be the norm for the UK. So hang in there won't be to much longer. If you're notified by letter as I was, it tells you what they found...hopefully your neuro moves your appointment up quicker, hopefully. Any questions you have please feel free to ask, we'll try our best to find an answer. Welcome


Welcomr out of the shadows, @leanne83 . 😉 Your Neuro is the only one that can formally diagnose MS. They will need to ensure that all the correct boxes are ticked to make a formal diagnosis. There's no harm in chasing up the Neuro's secretary to find out what's going on. Be a nuisance, but a polite nuisance. It's been a long road for you, so try and put your feet up, take it easy and cruise to the finish line.....
