Hi Kim,

I had six, and one in my spine.  Six months later, I had "a few" more, but was never told how many - I guess I might have been scared if I was told.  I assume "a few" to be more than two, so I'm guessing at least nine in the brain now, plus one in the spine, but some of these are old.

Number of lesions is not a reliable predictor of how you'll be affected, or how severely, by the way.

Where they are is more crucial.  Someone can have quite a lot of lesions, but still relatively little disability. Conversely, a single lesion in an unfortunate place can cause a lot of problems.
