Last year i had seen a neurologist regarding my balance. I have also had episodes of incontinence and also pain of hips and feet which could be that i am keeping my balance by walking on the outside of my feet. He did a mri and the saw 6 lesions and he stated that it looked like either a past stroke or ms and if it was ms that it had been by looking at lesions 5 years in progression. Then did blood tests and spinal tap which were negative. Then changed his diagnosis to just being clumsey and he actually laughed at that comment.
I went off to a different neurologist he looked at the other neuro and sent me to be tested for my balance and they could not believe how off balanced i was. They diagnosed me aftwer having a test of my ears with vestibular dysfunction. And stated it maybe related to ms but just go to physical therapy and off my happy way.
I have have symptoms increase to falls, blurred vision, fatigue and increased hip pain. Went to a physician and he had mri done to see if lesions had changed. They are still there and i am very frusturated and so is he as to why i did not get support and better treatment. He is not sure what they are caused from. But unlike the others he is sending me to Maio Clinic in Rochester. What can i expect? It is very sad that it tiook all of this. Being laughed at. And having the other neurologist feed off of the first one. Can anyone give me a logical answer? I am pretty scared.
