Five weeks later I had a second opinion with a leading UK
MS specialist which my GP had arranged months before. he took hold of my hands and said I had done the right thing in coming to see him. In my notes he wrote "I think this is ms".
I was admitted to hospital for a week with lots of testing. At the end of the week he came to see me and said I think this is ms, but it's rare. He explained it was rare as I didn't show lesions on mri but did show atrophy of optic nerve.
