I got in to see a Neurologist within 1 week, he did the usual senses tests and asked the usual questions, with that, he said was I able to go into hospital for a few days to have some tests done, because something definitely wasnt right. As I remember this was on the Wednesday, and I had a phone call from the hospital to ask me if I could go into hospital on the Monday. I didnt have anything else on my schedule, so it wasnt a problem.
It was after all of this that I found out I was already taking all of the medication for ms.
Whilst in hospital I had all of the tests done, MRI, Spinal Tap, and some other kind of test to do with the brain. I was in hospital for 1 week. I was convinced that I had ms by this point, but the doctors didnt confirm or tell me anything at this point.
I saw my Neurologist about 2 months later to give me the results of all of the tests and as I thought was to give me a diagnosis, how wrong was I? He said that everything showed up inflammation of the nervous system, if I didnt get any other type of ms symptoms then it would be just put down to a disease that made the nerves flare up, otherwise we were looking at ms.
Approximately 10 months later I got Optic Neuritis in my left eye (but I wasnt aware of what it was, or what had caused it) I left it for about 6 weeks, I was totally blind in the left eye, then I decided to go to the doctors to find out what it was, he looked in my eye and told me to go to the hospital straight away, there I saw my Neurologist, and ended up on steroids, for the second time. There they told me that I could probably take that as confirmation that I had ms, my next appointment with my Neurologist I got a definite diagnosis of Multiple Sclerosis.
