Hi

my sister recently found white lesions in the MRI but the Dr. told her that she should make a balance test first to see if its MS or not and the tests showed that its not MS so he prescribed an antidepressant and omega 3 pills but a recent MRI showed a new lesion  , now we have visited 4 doctors 2 said its MS and the others said its only an infection , to be honest she is in a very bad mood doesn't want to eat or drink or to make any activity until she can figure out whats wrong with her

Hi. :) I hope it's okay for me to write a note here and ask you a question. I read that you said it's mandatory for doctors to test for mimics when they suspect MS and it's malpractice not to. Can you tell me what tests should be done? I don't think this is happening with me and nobody will even consider testing me for something like Lyme Disease because they insist that it doesn't exist in this state. I live in Michigan. Thank you and I pray that you are doing well and having a great day.

Hurting!!!!  I went to see an MS specialist and he only wants to see tons of lesions on the brain and spine.  I only have two on the brain and none on the spine.  Yet, I have left leg burning, no feeling in left toes, right eye orbital pain all the time at a level 5, and rib pain that sends me into tears that happens about 12-15 times a day.   I don't have the typical "MS" definitive signs on the MRI to say I have MS and I don't have a Tattoo on my forehead that says "I HAVE MS".   I need help as this **** hurts all the time and nobody can seem to tell me if it is MS or something else.

Just a quick note to say hi! It is a mixed bag. I am so happy these days. I have a good pain clinic so besides spending every Thursday at Duke it is not so bad. I am going to start riding again now the weather is better. I am shocked with all the places I have Cancer that I am still alive. But then I am lucky on the MS front because I have never not had symptoms. I hope you are well. You have such a wealth of knowledge.

Just a quick note to say hi!  I have the same problem with uncontrollable stretches and muscle spams in my legs and feet.  I believe it is a mineral deficiency..  I am the same age and have had 12 surgical procedures in the last few years, with lots of cortisone shots.  I think low stomach acid may be partly to blame as well.  Try minerals and B vitamins.

Hi Quix!  Your posts are super informative.  I'm currently undergoing testing for MS and am having an exacerbation. I have an MRI booked for early August (6weeks from now) but have the opportunity to get an MRI this week at a private clinic (I'm Canadian, so my booked test is through the regular system).  Would it be more useful for my diagnostic process to get the scan now while I'm having lots of symptoms, or should I just wait?  Thanks in advance for any advice

Hey quix.  It has been a long time.  Um I have a question.  I kind of gave up after the last round of tests a couple of years ago.  I have had a few flare ups since then but nothing beyond what I can handle or have gotten used to.  How long between MRI's would you suggest if I am just waiting for a positive MRI.  My PCP is positive it is MS but cannot make a diagnosis as he is not a neurologist.

Just a quick note to say hi!? The wil
Fe of a friend of mine was recently DX with MS (brain and spinal cord lesions?)
The problem is with her husbamNd. He is computer literate and an intelligent man,
But his take on the disease process and understanding of it is flawed, and is constantly asking why it cannot be "repaired"
While looking for articles or blogs that might help him understand better (with my help) I found your post on what MS is, but I cannot for the life of it find it agin!!!
Could you please send a copy of it to me @ ; ***@**** so I can help him to etter understand his wifes condition. It's hard for initial DG when you are married to a spouse who is not 'afflicted', and men can be so thick to try and fix rather than support their spouse.

Dear Quixotic1

Thank you so much for all your posts. I am currently in the process of being looked at by the neurologist (again)..........however my case is very complex and I have found your posts extremely useful. I finally have one neurological diagnosis, therefore now my symptoms can't be put down to that. I see the neurologist tomorrow so I am hoping for progress. Thank you for all your information on MRIs and your journey to diagnosis, it has given me strength. Julia.
