MS specialist says that I do not have MS. I would like a recommendation on what kind of doctor to see next, hopefully to understand better my monocular optic neuropathy, relative afferent pupillary defect, color desaturation, brain lesions (nonspecific) and dropfoot (dx'd).
Another MS specialist? A general neurologist? Endocrinologist? Or perhaps wait and see rather than pursue answers? Although I have been waiting for a while already....and fear that we are missing something...
I recommend you see a neuro-ophthalmologist to evaluate your optic neuropathy. You may be able to find one who is board certified in neurology who can possibly address the drop foot issue too.
