What are those white matter lesions that you mentioned that you had showing active on your MRI? Does that have anything to do with memory loss or is it a test for MS?

One of the tests for MS is an MRI. If it shows active white lesions, that could mean MS. However, I have SLE, systemic lupus and this could all be a part of it. I do have some memory problems, nothing major. Went for extensive nerve testing to rule out MS. Results will be in about a week. This will either rule in or rule out MS and a course of treatment will be decided either way. Hope this helps.
