Re: Possible MS?
Mar 9, 2009
Your husband's sx, combined with the family history, does sound suspicious for MS but it is up to a doctor to decide what it is or isn't. FYI, there are several other conditions that mimic MS, including but not limited to, B12 deficiency and Lyme Disease. There is a post atop the board called "The Differential Diagnosis of MS" that would be worth your while reading (there is a link in that post that talks about what it takes to get an MS dx and mentions a lot of mimics).

The diagnostic tools for MS besides physical examination and blood work to rule out other conditions is an MRI and some patients (but not all) go on to have a lumbar puncture (LP).

Good luck to you and your husband and please keep us posted.
