my boyfriend has had terrible headaches for the past two years, this year we have visited 7 hospitals in NY state, originially we were told that he had Lyme disease and he was put on antibiotics and it seemed to help but he was still not 100 percent, unsure of what to do we continued seeing Drs and now many seem to think it may be MS. 2 weeks ago he lost sight in one of his eyes and was diagnosed with optic neuritis and put on iv steriods for 5 days which helped tremendously...we were told that is the first sign on MS. also, after doing a spinal tap we were told that he has inflammation bands in his fluid. hes fatigued and sometimes needs naps here and there to clear it up.
but could it be lyme? or is it ms? im worried if we dont treat the right thing it will get worse.
does inflammation bands automatically mean its ms?
also, what medications are proven to be more effective im readin and there seems to be a few, whos to know which one works the best?
im not sure what all of this means
