Ok here is my take...............you need to find an MS specialist and go for a second opinion. One of my lesions is in the parietal lobe. I am not a doctor but you have a lot going on. You have white matter lesions, you have an eye doctor that has concerns. You have abnormal results on an evoked potentials test, and you have many symptoms.
A diagnosis will be complicated by the other health issues you have. I would be looking to rule out MS if you can, I believe that means a second opinion.

Sorry for not posting lately. I have been trying to avoid making the appointment with the neurologist Casino recommended. I keep hoping that the numbness will go away, and I can pretend like it is not something to worry about.......guess what though ? It's not working... It's certainly not from a lack of wishing though..
Anyway, I finally called, and I have an appointment tomorrow at 1:15, it is with the nurse practitioner, but at least it's an appointment.....I suppose that I should bring the MRI and the report? Should I also bring the emg/ssep testing that they did on my legs? Does that even matter?
I am worried, as I'm sure that you all were and really second guessing myself. I will feel like an idiot if he says it is nothing and feel like an idiot for putting it off if he says it might be....can't win for loosing either way I suppose.
I have managed to lock my keys in my house now four times in the last month.....I never, ever do that.....but I do it all of the time now.....my husband is getting a bit frustrated with my absent mindedness......and me too actually.
Anyway, I will be back tomorrow, after the appointment to let you know what they say or don't say.....if you are feeling so inclined, a wish for good luck would be appreciated. And Casino, thanks for the referral...I wonder if I can put that name down for the referral? LOL.....they won't know who I am talking about, but oh well....... Sandi
