    At least they are trying to find out what is wrong. I don't will be as bad as you think. People I know who had it done tell me it can be pleasant listening to the music they play. One friend told me he went to sleep. Do let us know you get on. All the best.

    Hi again. No they do t NEED to occur but it is another indication of MS. I thought I had an ear infection as I'd been diving in tropical waters but in fact it turned out to be another symptom ( a year after numbness in legs) so that was when I got sent for MRI scan 

    don't worry about scan  but hang on until they finish if you can. Just concentrate on a recipe or shopping list or so ethi g to distract t you or count slowly biggrin))
