Hi everyone! I’m new to all of this but have read a lot of posts/replies and the support on here is fab!
I was diagnosed November 16th but I’m very aware that I don’t seem to fit the usual pattern of diagnosis.
My symptoms began just over a year ago and when I visited my GP for the second time he set up an emergency referral to a neurologist.
I had my suspicions that MS was a possibility but certainly didn’t expect to come away from my initial consultation having it confirmed!
I have a positive Babinski reflex, RAPD, diplopia and spastic paraparesis (amongst other things) according to the follow up letter sent to the GP.
I don’t think it’s sunk in yet, probably because I thought I’d have to have further tests done first.
I was immediately referred to the specialist to begin meds and I’m just waiting for that appointment.
I have a brain and spine MRI with contrast on New Years Eve.
Has anyone else received a diagnosis from clinical examination alone?
