Re: Question about my MRI

Yes, aging, migraines/headaches and other things can cause lesions and would not necessarily indicate MS.

As far as your symptoms; many things can cause the same type of symptoms as those found in MS such as other conditions, some medications, vitamin/mineral deficiencies and mental health problems. All of those other causes would need to be ruled out as part of the diagnostic criteria for MS.

Doe the arm numbness ever improve?

tingling in back, fatigue, urinary urgency at night. pain in my legs...
If you have not had an x-ray and/or MRI of the spine you might consider speaking to your Dr. Back problems (bulging/herniated discs) can cause the symptoms you listed. A MRI of the spine can also detect MS lesions, if any.
