Hello, Candy. Thank you for the encouraging note. Been having sx for 8+ years but they would remit before I went to dr. Last Sept., a half dozen old and new sx ganged up on me so I went to dr. She ordered MRI which radiologist said was demyelination. After MRI and positive CSF, got confirmed RRMS dx in Feb. this year and now with 3rd neuro, more tests. Latest MRI showed 'no significant progression' in last 10 months but there's a new lesion on the brainstem. Neuro's notes in part say, lesions 'scattered throughout the juxtacortical' and lesions in 'periventicular'. I've seen in other posts that these are on the McDonald scale for positive dx. Thought sx would go away like they did before, but not all have. Tired all the time. But counting my blessings - which are legion!
