As you know, I had my appointment with the MS specialist last week. She did a very thorough exam and told me that my symptoms are consistent with MS, but my MRIs are clear, which happens about 10% of the time in MS diagnoses. My reflexes in both legs are way off too (hyperactive knee reflexes, absent ankle reflexes, and present Babinski reflexes in both feet now - it was just my left foot back in June) and my left leg is very weak, so something is definitely going on.

I'm scheduled tomorrow at 8 a.m. for a spinal tap. Please keep me in your prayers that it will go well tomorrow. I'm scared of this test, but even more afraid of the possible results.

Thanks and hugs,

Hey Lisa

I will most definitely keep u in my prayers and will be looking forward to knowing how u'r doing afterwards. Remember that if u get that headache u can ask for the blood patch and it should give u pretty quick relief. Take good care and let us know how it goes.

Good luck Lisa! I hope they find something!
