The doctors have found white matter lesions over 6 of them three years ago and now I have four new ones, he didn't want to say it was MS because I don't show weakness in my limbs. However now he is doing a spinal tap to see. I have blurred vision in one eye, extreme fatigue to where I can hardly get through work. How long does it take to get the doctor to doctor to so something. This has been going on for years.

Ridiculous!!!! Be sure you are seeing an MS specialist. If not, find one and get a second opinion. I have heard time and time again, people suffering for years in limbo while visiting a general neurologist. They seem afraid to diagnose people.

I have no lesions on my soul and so I live with no limits.

I agree with Gretchen1, docs can ( and should according to treatment protocol) start MS meds d/t "probable MS" or clincally isolated condition(condtion isn't the word, but it went out of my head as I was typing... part of my MS). Could you tell us if they find anything in the CS fluid(if you so choose)? take care!

Clinically isolated syndrome. Hehe. Been there, done that with lost words. This is a good post, nurse.
