forgot to answer the lesion in my brain question, the report from the mri shows two active lesions in my brain, one acute and one subacute....but it says "Interestingly, neither foci demonstrates any evidence of pathologic enhancement and there is no evidence of pathologic enhancement at any site within the intracranial compartment".

I'm not exactly sure what that means, I was assuming it meant that the lesions in my brain were not responsible for my symptoms. Maybe someone can shed some light on this for me.

Hmmm... that has me baffled, and I may need to ask a friend who's a MRI technician. "Acute" and "Subacute" seems to imply activity/inflammation is going on . . . but yet they didn't "ehance" like most inflammed lesions would. :confused:

Bear in mind though, many of our lesions are not visible on a MRI, so there can be inflammation that they aren't even aware of too.

I suppose the spinal lesion could be the cause of your leg weakness too :confused:, that's just not the way things have panned out for me in an acute spinal lesion attack. However, I have had intermittent weakness in my arms (can't raise them above my chest level, very tired and sore), without any numbness . . . but I don't know if that was caused by my spinal lesions or my baby brain one's. :D

I'll see what I can find out about your results, but it may take a few days for an answer from him.
