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

6 doctors agree

In brief: 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.

Clearly there are signs of central nervous system involvement. Suspicion of possible demylinating disease was strongly suspected, or why was spinal fluid analyzed. Concur that this can be easily sorted out, concur with a second opinion.
