Does anybody have a Radiologically Isolated Syndrome diagnosis?
This is a very short summary of my medical history:
2 years ago I had a regular MRI scan and I accidentally found out I had brain lesions, most probably related to multiple sclerosis, but I have never had any symptoms. I was told that what I had was Radiologically Isolated Syndrome (RIS).
Over the past 2 years I have done various medical analyses:
– head MRIs (the lesions look the same as they looked 2 years ago, no new lesions; possibly 2 of them are active)
– spine MRI – no lesions on the spine
– evoked potential tests – all good
– lumbar puncture: IgG Index = 1.023 and oligoclonal banding = positive
In about one month I am going to go to Brussels, to see a neurologist at the National MS Center.
Can anyone tell me what I should ask? What can I expect if I have a RIS diagnosis? Can you recommend any other medical investigations?
This is the very first time I ask somebody about this condition.
Any help is highly appreciated.
