    Exclamation Need an MS specialist

    Hi,
    I have Chronic Lyme disease and I need to be evaluated for MS.
    I have a lot of white matter lesions in my brain, peripheral neuropathy and double vision. Along with imbalance, constipation, cognitive and coordination issues. Previously I has a neurogenic bladder and right hand weakness for months that resolved.

    I was thinking of seeing Dr Williams at the International MS center or Dr Krupp at NYU. Has anyone had experience with these doctors? Do you think they are familiar with Lyme disease?

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Thank you,
    Joan

    Re: Need an MS specialist

    The doctors often have a profile noting areas they deal with or are certified in. I would encourage you to inquire directly. Also, Lyme presents as an MS mimic. It takes time for recovery and healing from Lyme and the longer the treatment is delayed, the longer and more difficult it becomes to recover. With Lyme present, the MS doctor would be challenged to separate what is Lyme and what is MS
