Hi, I have had many issues over the years with no answers. Back in October I could barely walk, had pins and needles in bottom of foot, down legs, in hands and fingers along with muscle jerks, twitching, insane migraines with sharp stabbing pains in brain. Vibration feeling in body like I am shaking from the inside out. Left eye weak and seems lazy/ blurry. Lack of concentration. Heart palpitations. And more.
MRI revealed T2-hyperintense lesion in pons
I finally found a neuro who wanted to do MRI. They found T2-hyperintense lesion in pons along with other nonspecific white matter lesions. He said the next step would be a lumbar puncture but it is not reliable and he felt the best step would be wait and see with follow up MRI sometime down the road. I wasn’t prepared for the call and due to COVID it was over the phone consult. After we hung up I thought more on it and feel that I should at least do the lumbar puncture to find more answers. I called back and they said they can send me for lumbar puncture once COVID relaxes which they hope to be by middle of June and then they can send me for Lumbar puncture.
Would you get a lumbar puncture?
I guess my question is: is this typical of MS? Would you opt to get more answers and do LP? I don’t even know what to ask. I am near daily struggling with one ailment or another which I think is all related. Ie migraines, shooting stabbing pain in brain, weakness, tremors in hands, tingles down leg etc. I guess any help, insight would be beyond grateful.
