Good news today...

I brought the MRI films to my Dr today, and he confirmed I dont have MS. He said I tested positive for 2 bands out of 5 for Lyme, so that is the avenue I am going after next. Lucky for me my brother and sis in law both have Lyme and have a great Dr, that I will get to see to confirm that I have lyme.

I was very relieved to finally rule out MS. Thank you for your help and encouragment when I was afraid and needed a kind reply. I wish you all the best.

Re: Good news today...

Thank you msjayhawk. I think I have a long road ahead of me if I do indeed have Lyme (Which I thought all along really) but I am already on Doxycylcline for 3 weeks. And, I have help with it in my family since 2 of them know all about it.
I think the really hard and scary part is NOT knowing what disease you have, because you cant treat it until you do.

Re: Good news today...

Thanks Nik. I didnt know you live in NJ. Lovely lyme state, isnt it?
I am doing better today and I just finished my 3rd week of Doxycycline. I have to make an appt with my brothers Dr, who is Lyme Literate and take it from there.
Happy Holidays to you too!
