Multiple Sclerosis - Diagnosis


A diagnosis of MS can be made through detailed history taking, clinical examination and tests.

Some of these tests include:

  • Blood tests, to exclude other conditions which may have similar signs and symptoms to MS.
  • Lumbar Puncture, to remove a small amount of fluid from the spinal column to test for abnormal antibodies that are associated with MS and to help exclude other conditions which can mimic MS.
  • Evoked potential studies, to test the speed in which nerve impulses travel along a person’s nerve pathways.
