    For those of you with MS- I am wondering if your dx was clear and when/ how it was confirmed. Any with clear head MRIs/ Lesions on spine only? Any with clear MRIs/ spinal fluid dx? Any clear MRIs at all?

    How old were you when dx?

    I think I just want to confirm that DH is wrong- he thinks they're missing it... I don't.

    Thanks!

    Do they all have a positive ANA? I assume that there is something uniting them?

    I don't have MS but my sister does. She shows lesions on her spine and a small one in the head. She was about 52 when diagnosed.

    I have an acquaintance that was diagnosed with MS first then they changed it to devic syndrome. She only has lesions in the spinal area. I think devics is pretty rare though.

    Some of the Drs that I are researching lyme have said that people with a Dx of MS or ALS have all tested postive for borrelia.

    This was either Dr Mattman or Dr Whitaker.

    Lyme is far more common than what people are told.

    if my lyme titer was neg., would that rule out MS? ie: ALL MS dx pt. have positive lyme tests? Or that it is just common among those dx w/ MS?

    Thanks,
