I had a spinal puncture done and the results said CSF/serum oligoclonal bands negative and CSF Oligoclonal bands 0 bands. does that mean i have ms?

Multiple sclerosis: Presence of CSF oligoclonal bands is consistent and normally diagnostic of multiple sclerosis in the right circumstances. The absence does not rule out MS and the diagnosis has to be based on clinical findings and MRI results. There may also be some ethnic differentiation of oligoclonal bands present in patients with MS. you can review the article below http://dx.doi.org/10.1155/2015/217961 ...Read more

Consistent: But diagnosis of MS should be based on history, physical exam, results of MRI films, and spinal fluid is useful in ambiguous cases.

Dizziness, one sided numbness, one sided temp loss of function, uncontrollable body jerks, oligoclonal bands in CSF and serum. Neuro behcets or ms?

Dizziness, one sided numbness, one sided temp loss of function, uncontrollable body jerks, oligoclonal bands in CSF and serum. Neuro behcets or ms?

Suggest : The oligoclonal bands should be significantly increased in spinal fluid as contrasted to serum to be c/w multiple sclerosis, and some of your problems are likewise supportive of ms. However, do you have history of eye and skin problems more in keeping with behcets, and are MRI studies of both head and neck c/w ms? This should be fairly easy to sort out, and if ambiguous, perhaps a second opinion. ...Read more
