Hello @ciara1982. Most people’s diagnosis is confirmed through a lumbar puncture, although experienced neuros generally have a firm idea when looking at MRIs. Your can be diagnosed if either brain or spine lesions are identified, or a combination of both. Experience tells us that speedy diagnosis is often a postcode lottery too, dependent on who specialised various hospitals are. That said, lots of MS symptoms overlap with those of other conditions too, so hopefully you get to find out as soon as possible. All the best, and do post any questions you have. Would be good to hear about how you get on at your appointment 🙂
