Hi!
Diagnosis of MS is complicated as no single diagnostic test is confirmatory. However, more than 90 percent people are diagnosed based on MRI only. Neurological examinations reveal weakness and other signs. Vitamin D and B12 deficiency also produces symptoms like MS, and hence these are ruled out. Evoked potential tests are done to diagnose nerve weakness. Lumbar puncture or spinal tap is also confirmatory for MS. Hope this helps. Take care!

The medical advice given should not be considered a substitute for medical care provided by a doctor who can examine you. The advice may not be completely correct for you as the doctor cannot examine you and does not know your complete medical history. Hence this reply to your post should only be considered as a guiding line and you must consult your doctor at the earliest for your medical problem.
