31 YO, Caucasian female. MS symptoms such as vertigo, balance problems, daily headache and chronic migraine, tinnitus and hearing loss in left ear, memory problems, pinching/stinging pain, itching/tingling skin, muscle spasms and muscles easily weaken… Tests were run to rule out other causes from lupus to diabetes to hepatitis etc… Before symptoms began mri was Normal, but now States “Minimal nonspecific faint spotty FLAIR
hyperintensities in posterior periventricular white matter.” this was completed without contrast. My question is, does this Mri finding suggest MS? Is a LP or second episode/mri still needed for diagnosis? Any insight is helpful, just struggling to find answers and effective treatment on this journey. Follow up not until January. Thank you!
