I am 64 years old and am having symptoms that might be related to MS. My first MRI showed a cavernoma in the temporal lobe with a small bleed. After the second MRI, I was told that it was healing. I am still not well. Would it make sense to have the MRIs looked at by a specialist in late onset MS. If so, who.
You can certainly have Multiple Sclerosis as well as a cavernoma, but I don’t think this is your main question. Making a diagnosis of MS over the age of 60 is often difficult and requires advice from an MS expert, not only to review the MRI scans but also to review all other elements of your case.
We have a service we will be adding to this website soon that allows you to upload your MRI scan (if you have it on a CD) and have it reviewed. If you would like to use this service, please lets us know.
You didn't indicate where you are located to let you know what specialists are in your area.
