Hi all, good to be here! Looking for any advice - Numbness in forehead and vision problems in right eye. MRI showed lesions in brain, but Doc says they are not "typical" MS lesions. Spinal tap showed 9 o-bands (what ever that is). He has diagnosed me with MS and started me on Betaseron after 5 days of intravenous steroids. Maybe I am in denial, but I am getting the impression I have been diagnosed with MS because of lack of anything else to call it. Thoughts? Thanks in advance for anything you can offer!

Hi blujnbby: I saw your post and wanted to let you know that I don't think this particular subject on this webite is very active. There is a very active MS community over at the Medhelp (dot) com can probably get a lot of help there...
DX with Lyme and Erlichosis in January 2010. January-August: Biaxin and Amoxicillian. September 2011 - ? on Rifampin and Zithromax. Symtpoms mostly neuro and have 20 small lesions on brain.
