T2 Hypersensitivity Lesions
Hi, I just had an MRI the end of last month and it showed several areas of T2 Hypersensitive areas in the frontal part of my brain.  My question, is on a normal scan, should you ever see any of these areas?  And if not, do always point towards an inflammatory process?  Last but not least, these would be considered new, if they only show as T2 correct?

Thank you for your question. Although without being able to placing your findings in context with clinical features and the results of other investigation such as hematological, MRI, I can not offer the specific advice & treatment you need. Since
there can be many possibilities in your case that T2 Hypersensitive images of brain. These may include metabolism errors, exogenous toxins released by virus, autoimmune disease, leukodystrophy, demyelination, and radiation effects. I would recommend to consult a neurologist in this regard. Hope this helps.

I do have Lyme Disease, I was actually diagnosed with it back in January of 2007 and given a small dosage of antibiotics.  We aren't really sure that they did anything to irradicate it though.  I see that it can cause Meningitis and Encephalitis, I am certainly hoping that we are one step closer to finding out the root cause of all my problems.  But I see that there are no treatments for either of these, which scare me.  I have redone the ENG, and it shows that since I had it done in November that I have less usage of my right ear.  So there is something affecting the right ear and its nerve, just aren't quite sure, what.  My PCPs first thoughts were of course the two conditions I mentioned earlier, and when I saw that they can indeed be caused by Lyme it has me concerned.
