I've had two MRIs of the brain, plus 3 of different portions of my spine: cervical, thoracic, lumbar. The brain MRIs were both normal, but the cervical and lumbar MRIs show degenerative disk disease, and nerves impacted by bulging disks at L3-L4 and L4-L5. From what I've read this could be due to Lyme, as Lyme can accelerate the development of DDD.
