Already faced with multiple health problems I now find that I also have MS. My Dr. tried to explain the MRI telling me I have lesions here and there on my brain and spine. When I asked about scarring he said we would talk about that after my spinal tap. He has always been very detailed when I have a question so I feel he avoided this topic for a reason. I walked away from my appointment thinking, "OK, this is it. This is the thing that is going to break me." I have had numbing of my hands and feet for about 3+ years and it was always assumed it had something to do with my cataplexy and I must have suffered some sort of injury and blahh, blahh, blahh. Now for about a month I haven't been able to see out of my right eye. I went to my regular Dr. 5 times last year because of my hands and feet. 5 times! That's alot isn't it? That means 5 MS "episodes" all adding new lesions. During contrast on the MRI the entire left side of my brain lit up. Ok, I have lesions but what does that mean? Do they heal or do they scar? If they scar, does that mean permenant damage? Lesions on my brain and spine, I'm in trouble aren't I?
