She either is going to address the brain or the lumbar spine which showed hemangiomas on L5, S2 and S3. I don't think Hemangiomas are related to MS so I am not sure what the new will be.
Please allow me to offer some suggestions: In the next week compile a list of your symptoms, as well as you can remember. Consider the following guidelines for a neuro exam, as given by the University of Chicago: http://peripheralneuropathycenter.uchic ... #bloodtest
Research the disease-modifying drugs (DMDs) – there are 10 currently approved for relapsing remitting MS (Betaseron, Avonex, Copaxone, Rebif, Novantrone, Tysabri, Extavia, Gilenya, Aubagio, Tecfidera). The first four were approved before 2002; the last three have been approved in the last three years. Frankly, I doubt that any drug can be effective until the cause of MS is known. I have heard that some doctors announce their diagnosis, give a list of drugs to patients, and ask them to choose one.
All the best to you.
My hypothesis: excess insulin (hyperinsulinemia) plays a major role in MS, as developed in my initial post: http://www.thisisms.com/forum/general-discussion-f1/topic1878.html "Insulin – Could This Be the Key?"
