I have all spasticity and extremity tingling weakness loss of sensation

I wish it were as simple as my reading your message (which I feel for), but you obviously have a complex history (multiple doctors have seen you).

I suggest going to an MS specialist.

I am not sure how the spinal cord lesion is being explained by your physicians.

Cara,
While you're waiting for Dr. Kantor to make this house call, I have a quick question - have you had a repeat MRI or was it just one?  I ask because I understand sometimes it takes a while for those pesky lesions to make themselves visible ....

I hope the doctor can give you some clues as to what to do next - you've waited long enough.

Do spinal lesions occur with much frequency in the tick-borne illnesses like Lyme and its associates?
