    Brain malfunctioning impacts whole body systems

    The Brain. So complex. Yet, it connects to and impacts every single function of the body, every system of the body, and cellular functioning also. What is happening with my brain? What good are these tests that leave me without
    clear answers other than a cornucopia of mutliple diagnoses??? Please help clarify this question:

    How can a patient know if they have MS perhaps intermittent/relapsing without having a Lumbar Puncture done? Is it even possible to rule out MS without doing such testing?

    While its understandable that persons that usually have a combination of health maladies that can cloud the primary diagnoses or condition; I've just about had it with not getting straight forward answers. With so many tests, mri's, xrays, etc; still do not have a definitive answer/response regarding MS.

    With brain lesions, dizziness, vertigo, migraines, inability to walk needing a cane or bed rest, vision problems, cognitive/executive declination, with time periods that are either really good or really not so good.

    At this point, after numerous specialists, appointments and testing; with a clear change in MRI without any changes in the brain lesions, still have not been told what the main condition actually is or could possibly be. Instead the only response was "in people with MS the brain lesions are usually located in a different part of the brain". That statement neither approves or disproves the diagnose or non diagnose of MS or not MS...its an open ended non answer to a very specific condition and question revolving around personal health concerns.

    Has anyone on this board forum received either the MS diagnose and or the Ruling out of such dx without having a lumbar puncture done?????

    Have you by chance taken a fluoroquinolin.
    ie:cipro.Levaquin. Avalox etc.
    A very dangerous class of antibiotics.
    It can cause all of these symptoms and more and all tests come back normal

    It's possible that at some point one of the Antibiotics that you've listed may have been prescribed. Don't do well with (sensitive to) antibiotics so usually ask for nyastatin or another antifungal to counteract reactions. Thanks for your advice!
