Normal Lumbar Puncture
I had a MRI done a few weeks ago (about 5th one).  All others came back with only 2 lesions.  This one came back different.  What I'm not sure since I haven't gotten the written report.  My Neuro said that what they see on the brain MRI is consistent with what someone with MS has.  He wanted me to have a lumbar puncture to double check.  He mentioned that he wanted to start me on treatment but to wait for the LP.  Well, the LP came back normal so now they want me to wait 3 months to have another set of MRI's done (brain & full spine) to see if there are any changes.  I'm not really sure what to do at this point.  Should I just wait out the 3 months or press for treatment.  I have been suffering from MS type symptoms now for at least 3 years....double vision, blurred vision, numbness tingling, muscle weakness in legs, bladder issues etc.  Just not sure what to do now.  Not thrilled at the idea of injections but they seem better then all the other issues.  Any advice out there would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

Hi...I know u want to feel better, but ur dr wanting to wait since the MS dx was not confirmed.Most likely u had some lesions that indicated MS, but can be from an injury or migraine headache ect....

Ur symptoms can be from other conditions too...u said that the MRI showed something else...what?

That could be y ur dr is waiting......the full spinal MRI is a very good idea.

Good luck
