So I’ve been having weird neurological symptoms for the past 2 months – I’ll not bore you with the long list! I had an MRI on Monday and the neurologist called today to tell me I have a patch of inflammation at the base of my skull that explains some – but not all – of my symptoms. He says the other symptoms are probably functional neurological disorder. It would seem strange to me that I’ve simultaneously developed brain inflammation and FND! He said this could be a one off or an indicator of MS. I’ve to go for blood tests and a lumbar puncture, then he’ll decide whether to start medication. A few questions I’m hoping you can help me with:
– how long have you had to wait to get LP?
– is it the decider on whether he puts me on medication?
– did you recover fully from your first ‘flare up’? I have improved a lot but still not recovered after 2 months
It has really sucked not being able to drive or work for the past 2 months, and now all I can see ahead is more waiting and more tests 🙁
Thanks in advance for your help x
