I've had two MRIs that both a showed significant number of lesions both brain and spinal with Dawson's fingers. The lumbar puncture had O-bands, so clinically I have all the signs of MS.
Symptoms are loss of balance, left leg spasticity, fatigue and heat intolerance. Definite symptoms of MS.
And please don't feel sorry for me for this. I consider this great news. There is a solution. At least from further progression, we'll see what has already to far gone for recovery.

I got the CD of the Doppler images. I don't know what I'm looking at, but man, the differences between my right and left side is HUGE.
I'll post again next week when I know something.
