Study shows 18% of patients diagnosed with multiple sclerosis are misdiagnosed.
A study of patients at a Los Angeles medical clinic showed that 18% of patients diagnosed with multiple sclerosis were misdiagnosed. Stroke, migraines and vitamin B12 deficiency can mimic symptoms of MS. The most common misdiagnosis was migraines at 16%. There is also a condition where a patient has an MRI with MS findings but the patient has no symptoms of MS.
