I hope everyone is feeling OK today? I've been having lots of problems lately which my Gp has ordered tests for. I have been asked by some of you what my test results were. 

MRI - brain lesion 

EEG - abnormal theta brain waves when awake

Sleep Deprived EEG - awaiting results

Bloods - very high markers on CRP and ESR (these markers mean lots of inflammation) but do not state where the inflammation is situated 

Thyroid test - finally within the range of normal

I have another full blood test scheduled for next week. I hope to get a definitive diagnosis soon but as brain lesions are not associated with fibromyalgia I fear it will be multiple sclerosis. I'm not sure about what other tests apart from a lumbar puncture are required? Feeling very sad at present but sending love to all x

Oh goodness Mandy. What an absolutely dreadful time you're going through at the moment. Do you know how long you will have to wait for your diagnosis?

I very much hope that it is not MS. My thoughts and prayers are with you. 

I wish there was something I could do to cheer you up.

 Sending you many gentle hugs and kind thoughts winging their way to you.

Hi my friend,

I am so genuinely sorry to read this and I sincerely hope that you can get a diagnose one way or the other very soon. My wife has Primary Progressive multiple sclerosis as she has many lesions on her brain.

Usually a single lesion is not classed as MS, as there are other medical conditions that have these lesions. I have pasted you a link below to the NHS Choices cache on MS.

The next step in a diagnosis for MS would almost certainly be a lumbar puncture. It would appear that quite a few of your tests results are abnormal, and would need further exploration?

I want to genuinely and sincerely wish you all the best of luck. Please take care of yourself.

All my hopes and dreams for you

Ken
