I had an MRI done and it shows white spots on my brain so the Neuro doc wants me to go back to see the Rheumie
and then they want me to have a LP this week. The Neuro doc thinks it m/b Central Nervous System Lupus or MS. Do
 you think it will show if it is either one or will I need to go for even more tests?   Thanks!

I have no idea. If the lumbar puncture shows oligoclonal bands then that might indicate MS. I am not sure what CNS lupus does to spinal fluid.

It will be up to your doctor to order more tests.
Diagnosed with MS July 2006

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

My Spinal Tap results were showing no markers for MS but there is demyelination damage from something.

So I will see the Neurologist in a few days and he can give me more information on what this

could be from and how to treat it.
