I have had an mri of my brain a month ago that showed multiple lesions. I had a spinal tap last week and I have high lymphocytes and low monocytes. Everything else was normal. I am waiting for the MS panel results. Does anyone know how long that could take? It’s stressful not knowing. My neurologist thinks it’s possibly MS, I just want to know so I can move on. It would explain a lot of the issues I’ve had and am having.
There really is not test they can do to confirm MS. I honestly think you need to get on the phone with your neurologist to discuss these results and if he is diagnosing you with the disease. If you do have MS this stress isn't good for you.
I received my results via my patient profile and called my doctor because he wasn't calling me. He told me over the phone. My husband got mad so we had to schedule an appointment o he coud hear the news in person. It was a good thing because I learned a lot. Also I don't have lesions in my brain...only the spine. But I had 12 of the onaconial marks on the spinal tap results. It's a lot eaasier to accept if you already suspect the disease.
