So here’s my situation
August 2017 change of sensation in left foot and lower leg resulted in lumbar MRI. T12 cord abnormality identified and full brain and spine MRI arranged for 3 weeks later.
2nd MRI showed no further lesions and original had “resolved”. Lumbar puncture was positive for O bands with white blood cell count of 10 (92% lymphocytes), blood positive for ANA 1:160 homogeneous.
3rd MRI 9 months later has identified a small lesion in the cervical spine however still no lesions on the brain.
I’ve to go and see an MS specialist neuro but i’ve been told it might still be something else. Apparently my lesions aren’t typical of Neuromyelitis optica although they’ll do a blood test to be sure. i’ve only had one clinical eposide.
whats your best ‘real life’ guess folks ?
