Refused MRI

Hi, I'm new here. I'm 44, female, and from Canada. And, of course, I wouldn't be here unless I either have, or fear having MS. I am not one to freely admit to ever being sick so I am here for some much needed advice. Please bear with me.

In 2013 I had a bout of optic neuritis as confirmed by visual field test. I lost three quarters of the sight in my right eye ...

Jugular stents gone terribly terribly wrong - advice please!

Should I start medication?

So long story short I was diagnosed with optic neuritis in April and my "possible MS" diagnosis process started. I already had an MRI in June and was told there are a few spots in my brain but it is not definitive yet that they are due to MS since I've only had one noticeable symptom and I dont have an old MRI to look back to (I'm 23 years old).

Zamboni's 2015 talk, brave dreams, living longer

Has anyone seen the Brave Dreams results? I can't see how he would have got them to use the video-clip method, so maybe it's irrelevant. Because the MS population has been divided and conquered, I don't see anyone demanding answers anymore. Are we losing? The other side has the advantage: we all die young. The only answer is to outlive them. And to teach the next generation not to accept any more bullshit. If ...

She puts on pricey seminars/webinars about her approach to treating MS, Lyme, etc: $300 for an intensive one-day session, more for a longer, more in-depth class.

She has also written a book:

Is it flim-flam, or is it real & useful? Does anyone here know?

Another name that comes up in association with her is ...
