Post Lupus or Ms

In december I was told I most likely had lupus or ms. After a mri I was told ms. I am waiting now for results from blood lupuss testing. Was wondering if lupus shows spots in the brain with an mri. I have many symptoms of each disease. Including numbness in face and hand. I have also had mouth sore that don't hurt. I also have 2 possitive tests for lupus antibodies. Just to name a few. Anyone else have a daignosis between the two?? My older sister has a history of clotting in her lung. My younger sister had abnormal blood work. The doctor suspects lupus and is doing further testing. My father has ms. Any comments highly appreciated. Thank you
Mary McNeal

I just wanted to say that a person can have both MS and lupus. One does not have to have one or the other. Best wishes, Susan.
