Rizzo, yes I saw the link with TM with positive LP. Tthe neurologist wouldn't / couldn't comment, so I found it on the internet myself. I dont feel too worried. MS seems so manageble. Half the battle seems to be getting a diagnosis so that treatment can begin.
Lindilou have you had an LP? I assume you must have if you had a bad episode. You are right it is very difficult explaining things to children. I have two young uns, and it was hard for them when I went into hospital the other week. It really affected them quite badly and yet my symptoms are very mild. I have been through the mill with worry though and that's taken it's toll at home. I think we are coming to terms with a few life changes now. I'm working on recovering from my TM, and I'm cautiously optimistic that it's a one off, though I'm also a realist and the new symptoms after 2 months cant be ignored. Everytime I feel a little bit panicked I breath deeply and say "caaaaalm" and it seems to be working.
What is Mylelitis? Is that different to TM? I've not come across that one. I'm assuming that means multiple TM outbreaks - but surely that's the same as MS? O.o Confusing!
