Hello and hope you are doing well.

Usually a diagnosis of multiple sclerosis can be made over months to years and it is based on MRI, electrophysiological potentials from the brain and the presence of abnormal cells in the cerebrospinal fluid (fluid surrounding the brain). If the pointers from the tests fit into a diagnosis of multiple sclerosis, then therapy can be initiated.

Hope this helped and do keep us posted.
