Confused whether I have MS or not?

How do I determine whether it’s MS or not? Since 1 & 1/2 year I am feeling numbness in my right thigh intermittently that lasts for 10-15 seconds. Suspected MS and did contrast brain and spine MRI scan 6 months back, no lesion shown up in the results. I did an evoked potential test as well - results came negative as well. Still in confused state of mind whether I have MS or not?

  1. Hi . It is always possible you will develop lesions on down the line and get an MS diagnosis, but ,in the meantime, it might be worth considering other diseases and conditions that mimic MS. Here is a list of health conditions that should be rule out before getting an MS diagnosis: https://multiplesclerosis.net/diagnosis/ruling-out-other-health-conditions/. I hope this helps.
