I have chronic neurological Lyme and have had several MRI's and a lumbar puncture this past year. There are new
open MRI machines that aren't as scary as the older machines. You might want to see if there are any available in your area. I have severe neuropathy and my neurologist has been testing me for MS as I have many of the same symptoms that you describe. My lumbar puncture did indicate possible MS, however my MRI's have been clear. I'm still actively treating for Lyme but follow-up regularly with my Neurologist.
Peace and Healing
Lyme Disease - Doxycyline, IV-Rocephin, Amoxicillin, Azithromycin, Ceftin.
