I'm glad you went to the doc and got that looked into. The L'hermittes sign is one of the more bizarre symptoms my husband gets. By that I mean it doesn't seem to happen in conjuction with certain things like flares, heat, stress etc. It just kinda happens at random sometimes.
Good luck with your med decision, and I'm sure you'll make the best choice for you.
