I finally got my ms diagnosis after 4 yrs though at appointment I felt i had to push a bit for it. My neurologist was talking about waiting again to see if any new lesions on mri after a few new symptoms, recent one being reduced vision in left eye. On questioning why he wasnt diagnosing even if no new lesions he decided to have another look at mri’s from last 4 yrs. He asked if id had lumber puncture which I have had and was positive. He then said he could diagnose on the 2017 criteria.!!
I told him I was aware of criteria as we had discussed it last year and he said he should have diagnosed then. I am awaiting mri where then we can decide if starting treatment and have appt with ms nurse soon. Keeping positive and strangely relieved at finally having definitive diagnosis.
