Dear Jen..I visited the M.S sight out of interest and read your letter. I had a condition called transverse myelitis of the optic nerve and was also given M.R.I scans,spinal taps and various other tests to determine if i had M.S,and like you all the results came back negative.I had all the symptoms of the disease (including loss of sensation from my waist down). The only thing that told the specialists that i didn't have it was the absence of a protein in the spinal tap which is present when the myelin sheaths surrounding the nerves in the brain break down. They couldn't promise me that i wouldn't develop it but that was 10 years & 3 months ago.My message to you is to forget about it....maybe a possitive mind can keep thesethings away.( I was only 28 at the time)
