Brain and spine MRI 2 weeks ago to look for reasons for balance/falls issues, reasons for fatigue etc. Consultant call tonight. Are you at home? Are you alone? Basically I have 10 areas of scarring on brain and spine. He is saying MS. There is a history of scarring from 20 years ago. So bit in shock. Makes me wonder how much my mental health has been driven by this physical issue!
