I was told I have 40 some lesions !!!! OMG OMG OMG !!! Double vision doesn't hurt it's just an annoyance. So I asked the neuro, how about my sleep ?? Does that have anything to do with MS ??? NOOOOOO he said. OMG OMG. So I said NO to the lumbar puncture. One year goes by. Back to the neuro. He said I have 40 some lesions. I said what about my sleep. NOOOOOOO he said. Well my head was going bananas. So I had that lumbar puncture. Guess what !!!! I HAVE MS. I have 40 some lesions but I walk and have no problems below my neck. Nothing at all. But my head... headaches so bad I want to die. Still can't sleep. I'm nuts.
But the issue is, how can I have 40 some lesions yet NO physical disability ????
I have almost similar situation, I have about 20 lesions and NO physical disability at all. Some headaches, vision problems and numb on fingers and toes but I can move normally.
So number of lesions do not have anything to do with the progress of MS IMO.
