Feeling better, diagnosis???

Hi folks, I have been asking myself if I will get a diagnosis of ms? Basically had loads of lesions on the brain at my MRI in March and off for a lumbar puncture tomorrow but apart from burning in my legs and a bit lightheaded sometimes I feel so much better. Does oliogocolonal bands remain after a relapse to assist with diagnosis? Sorry very new to this with lots of probably silly questions. Any advice would be great.

@kateybash , it’s a voyage of discovery for you. There’s some info regarding the lumber puncture here :-


The Neuro will try to piece all the pieces of this jigsaw together and will see whether your results fit within the McDonald Criteria (https://www.mstrust.org.uk/a-z/mcdonald-criteria), to allow a diagnosis of MS.
