Don't let them do the muscle test. That's a choice!! Although Drs act like it isn t. MRI is the only real way of diagnosing MS. They will or won't find lesions on your brain.

The test for m.s is a brain scan . A ct scan or better yet would be an MRI scan . Good luck with that

An eeg is used to measure damage to nerve cells , it can be done with acupuncture needles for deeper nerves , most commonly used are topical pads that stick to you , it requires 2 pads or needles they then send an electrical charge through one pad and measure what comes out the other, it's supposed to be mild , for me it was extremely painful. But I'd do it again if need be. Take care

They have done nerve biopsies on my legs (my biggest problem is I usually cannot feel my upper feet or toes) Ive been told it is my back causing it, neuropathy, now they are sending me to a neurologist for some 2 hour study and I suppose then they will go from there. I'm 56 and from what I hear St my age it's unlikely although I know some they found it late in life. I wish you the best.
