Hi everyone,

I am usually posting on the Crohn's disease or fibromyalgia board. Does anyone know if you can be diagnosed with MS after having a clear lumbar puncture and evoked potentials test? My brain MRI showed about 9 lesions one year ago, then I had the other tests and they were negative. I just did another follow-up MRI and they found 2 more lesions. My doctor thought that the original lesions were due to Crohn's disease, since it is considered a granulomatous disease. Now I am concerned about the new lesions as well as a weird bug crawling sensation in my right shoulder, increasing severity in my headaches, and dizziness. Did my doc miss the original diagnosis?

Thanks in advance for your responses!
