Today I had my 2nd appoitment with my neuro and also had a MRI. He found small lesions on the cervical spine and in the brain. Each place he showed me explained why I would have symptoms in a certain area. He said since they werent really big or distinct he wouldnt say 100% MS but that he felt like it was the beginning stages and to come back for another MRI in 6 months. It was just really confusing cause then he said that it wasnt to the stage to treat yet but to just keep a eye on it.So do I tell people I have MS or what? The lesions are there and so are the symptoms. Do most doctors wait until a second MRI to make a definate diagnosis? He also did a EMG and said that looked good for now. Im just a little confused and scared. Im scared about the future. Im unsure about myself because here I am at 23 forgetting people and other things, tripping, having to stop what Im doing cause of dizzy spells and many other symptoms and Im not even sure if I have a offical diagnosis. He didnt really even explain MS or what to expect. He just told me to take Vit D and to call if any symptoms get worse or if new ones show up. Im just confused and scared so if anyone has any advice or could share there story about being diagnosed it would help.

Hi msuracer, I also was told I has MS, that wa a year ago. Since then I've been told I have Lyme disease, I been treating that for a year or so.

Can you share ALL your symptoms with us, MS, Lyme ETC is very hard to diagnose. Maybe we can help...
