Hello, I had my initial event in September 2019 and was diagnosed with RRMS in July 2020. My Neurologist saw lesions in my brain, some of which were enhanced and some were dormant. Although she could not see any lesions in my brain stem, she advised some would be there based upon my symptoms, which are mainly sensory ones, and it is likely that the MRI didn’t show them. I had a lumber puncture a few days after my initial event which came back more or less clear. I have made a 80% recovery from my initial event, but still suffer some persisting symptoms, mainly visual issues (INO) and vertigo, nausea etc. Have been taking Copaxone since September last year.
My question is that I wondered whether any future relapses are likely to be confined to my brain and brain stem, or is MS random and could impact my spine? I had a full spine MRI which showed no lesions and I am not suffering any symptoms which are normally associated with spine lesions.
Any information or comments which can help clarify this would be greatly appreciated.
