Hope MS is not interfering too much with you day.
I have had my DX about 3 years ago, multiple MRis, 2 DMTs and ever since no brain lesions. Neuro keeps telling me everything is OK and yet I do not feel all that way.
Let me contextualize:
1) Never fully understood (accepted) why we rarely do MRIs to the Spinal Cord (SC) but rather brain only.
2) Despite no further brain damage after starting medication, I do feel losses in coordination and movement in hand and leg (not to mention the shock waves on my leg).
3) All of what I feel as worsening in my MS is SC related and controlled (hands and legs).
4) Neuro keeps telling me that neither from a clinical nor from a radiology point of view my MS seems to be evolving and SC scans are not needed.
Now frustration is kicking in because I do read “a little” and sometimes reading is good to help opening new perspectives: https://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/epdf/10.1002/acn3.377
The study pretty much shows a correlation doctors seem to be dismissing as non important, SPMS can come even if brain lesions seem rather stable.
Or maybe it is just me thinking too much…but then again, I do know feel what I feel.
Any thoughts are warmly welcome.
