About Me: Female, 32, Barstow, CA, member since Jun 2012
Well, let's see... I have been having neurological problems on and off for the past three years, including chronic migranes. My primary care doctor ordered lots of blood tests and had a rheumatologist review the results and the rheumatologist determined that I have Lupu
[More]s. I am not convinced of this diagnosis and neither is my neurologist. She stated that those blood test results can be positive with lots of autoimmune disorders. I do have some symptoms of Lupus, but no rash. My neurologist ordered a brain MRI 3 years ago and it only showed one brain lesion, she ordered another one last month and there were 5 more brain lesions. She also ordered a cervical spine MRI, but that came back normal. Now she wants to do a lumbar puncture to see if I have MS or not. I just want an answer, what ever it may be. Still in limbo...
