Healthline asked me to share a Multiple Sclerosis Assessment Tool
I thought is was educational about how MS can be assessed.....It helped me to understand why the Doctor does ask some questions.
Hubs thinks that I put a positive spin on my test?
Well I could have......I did try to take the test with brutal reality so I could assess myself.....
Healthline gave this explanation for low test numbers:
it was normal for numbers to be low because the tool is meant to be a gauge between your personal baseline (of your status 6 months ago) and how you are now. The tool in effect is meant for viewers to track their own status (and gain info on MS symptoms as they do such) so that they may take that information back to their own physician. For example, someone may not have even thought about certain symptoms as being those of MS but in going through this tool they may start to make sense of symptoms they are experiencing and put the puzzle together for themselves of what could be going on with their body. I do not believe that the numbers can be 100% accurate as a means to a diagnosis, especially if someone is in between two sets of symptoms. However, in general I think that it is a great way to get someone thinking about their own experience with MS or recognizing possible symptoms of it.
