Here is My Question:
I had a bad headache a month ago. I visited a doctor and he asked me to get a brain MRI. They saw some white spots and also my OCB is positive. I want to know if I have MS or not? I DON'T have any other problem.
Your report of abnormalities on MRI and OCBs in your spinal fluid are suspicious for MS; however that alone can’t make the diagnosis. Use of the McDonald criteria are explained elsewhere on this site. You should be reviewed in person by a physician that is well versed in proper application of the criteria to help answer your question.
