6th nerve palsy

Post by Francis »

29 year old adult - diagnosed with 6th nerve palsy- now doctors testing for MS.

Only symptoms are 6th nerve palsy- no pain, no loss to colour vision, only complaint is the blurriness and sometimes diplopia ( double vision)

MRI showed slight lesions on eye and neck - L. Puncture also taken- results in 6 weeks.

All we have been told is possible MS? The male in question shows no other symptoms and MS is not in family.

Past medical history: very athletic, numerous injuries on football field including achilles tendon ruptured and dislocated shoulders in last two years

Suffered very bad cold/flu for two weeks after a recent trip to Rome ( two months ago)

Can you please point us in some direction- all we are told about is MS- we are very worried

Thanks
