There ae now words to desribe my fear. I have had a brain and a cervical MRI each which showed lesions. However, I was also diagnosed with Lyme in August of this year and went on a course of antibiotics. My last blood work (4 weeks ago, showed the Lyme antibodies still active.) My neurologist has scheduled me for a spinal the first Thursday of the new year.
It seems that everyone I speak to leans toward me having MS (two neuros, one is a top specialist in NYC). The specialist however will not make a determination until the lumbar punture. I have been online since August reading about the drug therapies for MS and all I read are nightmare stories about the disease, the side effects, lifelong agony, etc.
Can anyone give me hope, or should I just give up?
