Diagnosis

Sorry I keep reading about how many MRIs along with lumbar punctures people are having before they get diagnosed. I got diagnosed after one brain scan I am not in denial but surprised I have only been feeling rough for a couple of months now in a fortnight i’m going to hospital to discuss starting my DMT meds. Maybe I was just lucky that my symptoms screamed ms so loudly. I just can’t stop feeling sorry for everyone eles experiences and I little surprised that so far I have it so easy.

@gazmataz , it’s good of you to share your sympathies with those that have endure the frustration of an extended journey to diagnosis.

It seems that you have a good medical team, so long may it continue for you. 😉

Hi @gazmataz, compared with 20 years ago, the process of diagnosis is unrecognisable. Other people might have additional symptoms and complexities, but you can hank your lucky stars that it’s been straightforward for you. And a few more weeks will give you time in advance to research which route with DMDs you wish to take. Don’t forget lots of posts on here about most of the meds you will be offered 😉

I too was Diagnosed after one MRI Scan, I had one Lumbar Puncture post Diagnosis.

I too feel a little bemused by how many MRI’s and Lumbar Puncture’s some people have had before they get a Diagnosis, in some cases if they are lucky to receive one after umpteen tests.

I ‘m pretty much the same zarah although my MRI and Lumbar Puncture were about 6 weeks apart from one another.
