This is my first time here. I had a few questions about Multiple Sclerosis, and how it’s diagnosed. I have been worrying that’s what I have for about a year, and had a lot of trouble finding a Neurologist, but finally I had some testing done in a recent hospital visit, and have an appt with them in 10 days.
About 2 years ago I started having severe anxiety and depression, and also uncontrollably crying at times, which I’ve never experienced before. I thought messing up words was due to medication, now I’m not sure. None, Joint and Nerve pain on and off, constant tingling in both of my hands(fingers). Balance issues at times. Very emotional and not able to calm myself down, which feels like extreme adhd since I can’t focus. I started having seizures again 16 months ago. A year ago when I checked, I had every early sign and symptom.
They did an MRI, CT Scan, etc. In the MRI, they found a white matter lesion in my right mid temporal lobe. The findings/impression listed demyelination as a possible cause. When I looked this up it said MS is the most likely cause of this.
I wanted to ask for help (which I greatly appreciate if you’re reading this). I know I can’t ask someone to diagnose me, I was just looking for some insight, and how it gets diagnosed. Thank you so much.
