Melanderso -I am a stay-at-home mom now, but I was a high school teacher for 6 years before that. That makes sense what your neurologist said about your spots, that is basically what my report said, but my neuro said You can still have MS even if the MRI is not clear that it is. He said it was up to me if I wanted to have a spinal tap to know more definitely, and I made the decision I wanted to know. When I asked him the chances this would be MS, he didn't really want to give me a percentage, but he did end up saying less than 50% but greater than 5% chance. Not sure that helps much. Still waiting for results. It has been a week now, and I am so anxious. If this comes back normal, there is still a chance it is MS apparently, but the first thing I am going to do is make an appt. to get the Mirena out and then make an appt with a naturapath to get me on the road to healing. Have any of you heard of nutrition response therapy? I went to a seminar on it that a natura path put on and it was interesting. I am not sure how to explain it, but basically they test if you have toxins of certain kinds in your body like mercury, and if you have sensitivities to certain things too. It was interesting. Praying I hear something soon, and that this is not MS! Good luck everyone. THis is no fun!
