I am actually a frequent on the Lyme disease forum. It is common knowledge that unfortunatley us Lyme people end up with secondary issues like autoimmune diseases of various types. My recent brain MRI for a benign tumor that I had radiation on last year has thrown a few new issues into the mix. I have profuse co-ordination issues, dizziness, eyelid twitch, muscles spasms, muscle and joint pain and tremors and muscle and joint pain. I just recently had a baby and did great during pregnancy. After about 3 weeks I was thrown into the pitts and I am weaker than ever with tremors that just scare me half to death. I suffer extreme fatigue and take provigil to help with this along with various antibiotics for the lyme disease.
The last MRI mentions a few scattered nonenhancing T2/FLAIR hyperintense foci, predominately in the subcortical frontal lobe white matter. Some of these may represent pulsation artifact from calvarial cortical vessels. These findings are non specific similar findings have been reported with migraines (which I do not have) follow up MRI reccomended in 3-6 months.
Does this sound possibly consistent with MS. I have has several incidents where the symptoms flare up but I am never "normal" but I do get times where I am less symptomatic. The tremors and leg and arm weakness are my biggest issue right now along with the balance.
I go to a neurologist tomorrow and any input would be helpful.
