i had a brain scan 3 years ago because i woke one morning with slurred speech which lasted a week, the scan results were, something in the white matter of the brain, but nothing to worry about, i had spinal surgery a year ago for a prolapsed disc in the cervical area, i had a discectomy and fusion, i now suffer with drop foot, my leg is numb from the knee down, muscle wasting below that knee, i have painful shoulders at night, i wake often because of muscle spasm/jerks in my good leg, both arms, head and stomach, my eye sight is getting bad, i keep seeing white flashes, i fall often (broken my arms and wrists 4 times this year!) i have dizzy spells, i suffer stiffness, memory loss and confusion.
my paralised leg has been caused by another slipped disc in the lumber area (so i was told by a neurologist a week ago), he says my head, lumber/pelvic scans came back ok :confused:
why is it that one neurologists says i have MS, another doesn't mention it? :confused:
i saw a gp last week about my medication all she talked about was ''my'' MS and that i could talk to a MS nurse if i wish.
but 2 weeks ago saw another gp and MS was never mentioned :confused:
now i don't know what is wrong, why are some saying i have MS and some saying i don't?
how can i get a true diagnoses?
