T1 Black holes more relevant than T2

If it's on your mind and it has to do with multiple sclerosis in any way, post it here.

T1 Black holes more relevant than T2

I think this just confirms current understanding:

So that means that the last relapse I had and proceding MRI that showed that I had twice the lesions I originally did 2 years go is a really bad thing?

It depends if you have T1 or T2 lesions...hypointense lesions (black holes) are the bad ones. I have "t2 hyperintense/t1 hypointense areas" from my first attack which probably explains why I can't walk and never will be able to.

Hi Brock,
I don't know enough about this subject to speculate but every time I see this post the same question comes to mind "how many lesions then and now?" From my wife's experience neuros don't usually commit to exact numbers but have they given you any ideas?

Since seeing this post I've been looking for a study I saw earlier in which the researcher mentioned that "on average" people only experience symptoms from every 6th or 7th lesion, maybe that has some bearing on your situation?

In the end it seems that MRI's telling lesion loads do more to get people worked up than it does to help. Your rate of progression is all that matters. Of course there is no good progression but it doesn't sound like you've done worse than average in these last two years.

How are you doing? We haven't heard from you since this post.
