Question about Brain Lesions
Last year, I had two cervical spine surgeries to fuse vertebrae together and remove bulging discs resulting from serious, radiating pain in my right shoulder and hand.  18 months later I am having the following problems: my right thumb and palm is still numb (9 months), my right forearm is numb (of and on 6 months), right eye is blurry (2 months), right calf is in pain where is will shoot up my entire leg off and on (4 months).  An w/contrast MRI showed five lesions on my brain.  I am scheduled for a spinal tap later this month and should know the results within two weeks after.  My questions are: does the location of the lesions matter for an MS diagnosis?  Do my symptoms present as MS, or this completely unrelated?  My neurosurgeon says he doesn't think it's MS, but wants to test to be sure.  The terms "brain lesion" are scary and I am doing my best not to be fearful, but would like some opinions on what my symtoms mean combined with the MRI results.  I am also pre-diabetic.  Any help is greatly appreciated and I am happy to provide any additional information needed to help with the answer.  THANK YOU!
