No rule out yet.

Hello all.

Thanks for the help and advice I have gotten.

Despite my MRI leading my doctor to believe stroke damage/transient ischemia he is not ready to nor wants to rule out MS yet.  So, I am going in tomorrow for nerve tests.

I am a bit "nervous" over the nerve studies, but hopefully he will know more from them.

I am curious what other disorders could be causing my neurological symptoms.  I am going on week 3 of leg problems with my right leg/knee.  Buckling, stumbling, weird sensations, etc.  It seems to be getting better or close to ceasing its strangeness.

Anyhow.  I will talk to him about other possible causes.

I will be thinking of you A....as for the right leg bit with the knee; I am having that now. It has been going on for about a year. I loathe the stumbling bit.  Hang in there..jason

Are you having an EMG tomorrow?  or some other nerve test?  hopefully there will be some clear answers from your results.  My EMG of my bad leg gives conflicting clues - it definitely is the MS but also some sort of peripheral nerve damage unrelated to the MS... go figure!

good luck and let us know what the doctor reports,

Thank you Lulu.

I thought my leg was getting better, but the rest of the evening it's been heavy and acting up again!  I'm not sure what tests they are doing.  My memory isn't working. I just remember something like nerve study being said.
