I can only respond with my own personal experience and what I experience may not be someone elses experience.

My MS, from the begining, has mainly affected me from the waist down. My first exacerbation: I was numb from the waist down, hyper-sensitive to touch of any kind -bedding, clothes, shoes, socks or even a light touch from a loved one to the point of tears. I had extreme difficulty walking and L'Hermittes.

My Brain MRI was clear but, because the MRI was relatively new at the time I was going through the diagnostic procedure I did not have a MRI of the cervical spine.

However, when my neuro diagnosed me he told me my MS was affecting the cervical spine. After all these years he has been proven correct. I have numerous cervical spine lesions and only 2 brain lesions.

When the legs or areas from the waist down are affected my first thought is the person very well may have spinal lesions.

Lesions don't always correlate with symptoms. Once you have lesions (scaring) the damage to the Central Nervous system has already been done. This causes a mis-communication/mis-firing of nerve signal/responses that can affect you in many different ways and areas.
