Talk to Your Doctor About Your Symptoms
- Blood tests to look for other problems with MS-like symptoms, like Lyme disease.
- A test to measure the speed of signals traveling along your nerves.
- An MRI, which creates images of your brain, so your doctor can check for areas of damage.
- A spinal tap to check the fluid that flows in your brain and spinal cord. This may show signs that your immune system is harming your nervous system, which is what happens in MS.
