Hi everyone! I finally got into a neurologist last month because I've been having multiple symptoms of MS over the last 6 months. I also have multiple family members with MS so I know the signs of it which is why I'm concerned with my symptoms. I saw the neurologist who agreed that my symptoms point to MS. She did bloodwork to rule out other autoimmune diseases and she told me that she ruled everything else out so she then sent me for a brain MRI. The MRI came back as normal with no lesions present so the doctor just left it as that and said to check back in at a later time. My concern is my symptoms aren't going away and 3 days ago I developed face pain that has been coming and going. So I'm trying to figure out if its possible to have MS with a normal brain MRI and what my next steps would be. I know I could have lesions on my spine but she didn't order a spine MRI. Should I request a spine MRI or spinal tap or would that be pointless if I don't have lesions on my brain? Sorry for the long post I'm just really concerned. Thanks!
