Avatar f tn Why aren't the Doctors able to give me a positive diagnosis for MS when all the tests are consistent with the disease?

1925501 tn?1322888691 They never found the cause of the high blood pressure, but the Doctor said he had MS and in order to diagnose my father he would need to run several more tests. The Doctor also said that if he was able to get these tests done he might live 10 to 15 more years, if not he would probably never see 50, but we don’t have that kind of money and can’t afford insurance so the test have never been done.
Avatar m tn One of them said it is all due to ur anxiety ( Cause i do not have any bladder problems and dizziness, numbness tingling all is due to anxiety) but one said its Multiple Sclerosis+ anxiety. My MRI and EEG were clear. Currently i have high frequency of muscle tingling through out my body only when i am lying on bed plus i see double vision of any statement especially ( white in colour) on TV and laptop. Is it MS? Should I start taking Med for MS or just let it be and hope it will go away?
Avatar n tn It is possible that I had/have undiagnosed multiple sclerosis, and then when I started treatment the interferon kept the MS from progressing?

The neurologist should do lots of blood tests to help them figure out what it is and run other tests to determine the cause of your neurological symptoms. Because you have had so many viruses, my guess is that you have an autoimmune disease.
Avatar n tn The various causes of blurred and double vision are cataracts, macular degeneration, damage to muscles and nerves in the eye which can be caused by thyroid problems, multiple sclerosis, strokes, high blood pressure, and diabetes. Diabetes can also cause these symptoms by diabetic retinopathy. Consult an ophthalmologist for eyes evaluation.

Avatar f tn I was told by another doctor that the lesion pattern isn’t 100% typical in MS, but it is still radiologically indicative (I believe there were three hyperintensities, not symmetric and not confluent). They also did many, many blood tests for different conditions that may cause lookalikes (such as Lyme, Vitamin B12, etc.) and everything came back excellent. I think waiting might be the only option I have at this point, but I do appreciate your responses.
Avatar f tn Is there anyone out there that has a dual diagnosis of Myasthenia Gravis and Multiple Sclerosis? I was recently diagnosed with the MS after having the MG for 24 years.
Avatar f tn have you ever found a diagnosis? Multiple sclerosis?
1413587 tn?1289659823 Lesions have orientation and configuration compatible with the clinical diagnosis of multiple sclerosis. I have an appointment with the neurologist next week, but would like to have an idea of how indicative this impression might be to lead to a diagnosis of MS. Any replies would be appreciated.
Avatar f tn I am just glad I finally found a doctor that believes me and ran the tests for a diagnosis. I am not happy, of course, to get the diagnosis but at least now I can move on and start treatment before my symptoms get out of control. It is also a relief after having two other neurologists tell me I was "stressed out" or "it is all in my head". So, off to Missouri next week to have the other three tests run to confirm diagnosis.
