Hey everyone, I got diagnosed with transverse myelitis back in 2017, but they were suspicious it might be MS based on my symptoms years prior stating when I was 19. I had two lesions on my spinal cord when I did my first MRI back in 2017. Now I have another lesion on my spinal cord - I just did the annual MRI last week.
So now they want me to do a spinal tap (I really don't want to). Do you have to do a spinal tap? Also they might want to start me on medications, I am so sensitive to medications and I have a lot of allergic reactions so I don’t know if I wanna go that route... does anyone on here have an MS diagnosis with spinal lesions but no brain lesions? I am 35 btw. Thanks for any feedback!!
