Can lesions be reversed

My symptoms have still not come back after going back to my no flour, no sugar diet. Nuero appoint is Feb 7. My MRI showed lesions back in Nov after I had dislopia and still waitn for Neuro appoint. Had to give up flour back in 2004 after trial and error elimination diets due to IBS issues etc Celiac tests all negative. Put flour back in diet every 6 months and same IBS symtoms returned so would go back off again. I kept on thinking flour my intolerancee was temporary. Geez I been eating it for 50 yrs Anyhow put flour and sugar back in diet this last go around and this time I get double vision. Since I am back on my Paleo diet symptoms are at bay. Can lesions be reversed or are they permanent and the best I can hope for is to reduce any future ones from occuring? Please realize I still have not been diagnosed cept for suspected demyelination based on my MRI.
Great board.

Re: Can lesions be reversed

The myelin sheath is replaced with scar tissue. The lesion heals over with this scar tissue, but you never get new sheath tissue. The amount of scarring and the location can determine the impact of the symptom.
