I'm sorry you're having to go through this at all, and I don't have a specific answer to your question. But...I do know that people can be diagnosed with MS even without any evidence in their spinal fluid - even with no O-bands at all. There are, however, other medical conditions that produce O-bands, so your diagnostician will be looking at many other things to decide. The problem with MS is that it's usually a diagnosis of exclusion - if nothing else fits, you get the dx.
But not in my case. I passed every single test that they give for MS, as well as the ones they use to exclude other conditions (like the EMGs), but it's not necessary to pass them all -- many others do not. My first MRI showed a brainful of classic MS lesions, my spinal fluid showed everything they look for in that, and I pass all of the evoked potential tests.
Wishing you the best.
