Hi Kellie,
Sorry I've taken so long to get back. The VEP test results were normal. A few little irregularites but my doc said for the most part normal. The weakness has progressed on the right side and now am getting tingling pins and needles in right foot and hand. I just went back to the Doc this past Tuesday and he says he wants to do a PET scan to see how active the lesions are and to identify the one on the left side of my brain that is most likely responsible for my right sided problems. I just started yesterday to see something like a blurry spot in front of my right eye. It's difficult to explain but it's not like the total vision is blurring up but a tiny part of it in my right eye. Sound strange? Has anyone else ever experienced this or heard of it? How different is the PET scan then the MRI's I've been having? Has anyone heard of the PET scan being used to diagnose MS? Also, doc is arranging the spinal tap again that the hospital refused to do thinking if one of the lesions would turn out to be a tumor then the procedure could be then fatal. They didn't have any of my information and my doc says there is nothing to worry about as we are not looking at a tumor(s). I just wonder how long it will take for them to tell me exactly what is wrong so something can be done before it becomes much worse.
Thanks again Kellie for your note. I am sorry to hear about your husband's diagnosis and will be hoping the best for both of you.
Kathy
