So, yesterday I found myself visiting a neurologist with MRIs in hand. On said MRIs, they found several small lesions and one larger lesion. I think the total number was around 5 or 6. I feel like, before the neurologist even sat down, he had made his diagnosis. I passed all his cursory exams (sensory and otherwise), aside from walking in a straight line heel to toe. Now, the doctor told me my passing the tests and my MRIs were in total disagreement - he did not expect me to be able to do many if any of them given the MRIs. I have had issues with off-and-on headaches for about 10 years, but I have never received anything like this diagnosis prior. I visited the ER Tuesday night, lazed around Wednesday, visited the neurologist Thursday, and had loads of blood drawn today.
I have heard this is a hard disease to diagnose, and am, frankly, unsure of whether it was the proper diagnosis given my lack of symptoms. I think wanting a second opinion is only responsible, in this case, because this whole thing came out of the blue. I went to the ER because my GP wanted a CT scan for a migraine I'd been having, and the whole thing spiraled from there.
