First of all, I'm glad that you're happy about your LP results....how wonderful for you!
It seems that you are at peace and satisfied with the progress of your dx. I'm also happy that your symptoms not interfering with you having a somewhat normal life...
I really can't answer your questions about the MRI, because this is all new to me, as well. I know that a family member of mine had a herniated disc and had several problems as a result of it. I can't remember what area it was in her spine/back though.
As sad as this sounds a lot of us here WANT more evidence in the tests that may help us to get a dx. Such is LimboLand...YUK!
I wouldn't say that I am at peace I'm just scared to death of getting a MS diagnosis. For every tests I had after the abnormal MRI I have prayed for negative results. My hope for now is for a miracle.... But I can understand your feelings about wanting a diagnosis even if it is MS. I am just still hoping I have something else that has a cure. If only I could stop thinking about MS and move on.
I'm so sorry...I didn't mean to imply that you weren't scared or anything...My apologies..
The only reason I said what I did about some of us wanting a dx, was not just an MS dx, but any dx...as long as it's the right one....I'm sure you feel that way too...
I mean, we know that there is something wrong with our bodies, and just need answers and/or treatment to move on with our lives....
Also, as other's will tell you--MS is not a death sentence...it has been successfully treated with different medications and some people live a very normal life....Sadly, like you said, there is no cure---YET! I have faith that some day that will happen!
Take care and keep praying, Sara---it seems to be helping you...
