I don't no where to start, but from what I am seeing I may be in the same boat as some other people. I had a CT done about 2 years ago and it showed a small focal area of nonspecific right frontal periventricular white matter change. Then recently I had an episode of vertigo while driving which left me with a headache and blurry vision; I still have the blurry vision to date. My GP ordered an MRI of the brain w/o contrast which read as follows: Impression: Nonspecific periventricular FLAIR signal intensity about bilateral occipital horns without evidence of restricted diffusion, unchanged. New focal FLAIR hyperintensity within right corona radiata without evidence of restricted diffusion. Differential includes Lyme Disease, vasculitis or demyelinating process such as mulitple sclerosis. Small vessel ischemic disease is also in the differential but is considered less likely. Clinical correlation is recommended. When I saw my GP I had developed a rash across my midsection, then I developed a purplish mark above my eye. I had tennis elbow about 2 years ago which was treated with steriods and my right thumb last was swollen with a purple mark on it. My GP sent me to a neurologist and he performed a lumber puncture which was negative and now ordered a VER test since I am still experiencing eye sight problems. I had blood work done also and my ANA was positive/abnormal which I will be seeing a Rhemologist shortly. I have swollen fingers and my hands turn bright red and I am still having vertigo and when I get up in the morning and when I sit for long periods of time I get stiff and I am having hard time walking up the stairs. I thought I had an ear infection the other day, but it turned out to be TMJ; also have had trouble swallowing on occasion. The neurologist told me that my lesions were not "typical" for MS and that it could take years for a diagnosis in some people. I feel like I am getting worse and I am so tired. I feel like I am in limbo! I am sorry for the long post and I would appreciate it if anyone can give me some insight. I was not happy with this neurologist, he was not pleasant to say the least and I am thinking of getting another opinion. I asked him the other day, maybe we could repeat the MRI with contrast and he said no. Any help with help. Thanks for listening!
