4. Thank you. My spinal tap showed oligoclonal bands consistent with MS,
My symptoms and signs are just about too numerous to list...significant ones are abnormal gait and leg weakness, blurry vision consistent with ON, positive babinskis, absent Achilles' tendon reflex, hyperreflexia of my knees.
MRI showed a very large lesion on my thoracic spine (covering several vertabrae) and a couple of small ones in my brain.
Yeah, everything is going to sh*t because of the R's. it's like they WANT to create hell on earth for all non-billionaires.
I'm just tired of these relapses. This last one, my back hurt so bad I almost passed out when I sat on the toilet. I'm guessing there is another lesion on my spine now.
My PCP called me to give me a referral for a colonoscopy (weird, they must really want me to have one for some reason?) and I can only assume that was on behest of the neuro although I don't know why that would be part of the diagnostic process.
Ps they took blood for NMO test 5 weeks ago now....shouldn't I have the results by now???!!!!
Pps the neuro did say that I absolutely DO have a demylenating disease of the CNS...they just need to figure out which one it is before I can get treatment....
