Results of mri- demyelination and lesions any ideas?

Posted , 2 users are following.


I've just had results of mri brain and spine scan from the gp. Lesions were seen and he said it's demyelination. Any ideas what this could be?

    Demyelination is basically an antigen that eats at the nerve sheathes, causing wide symptoms.  How old are you?  Many people have lesions in their brain that never cause problems.  A gap is not the doc you need to be seeing.  Take your Mri to a neurologist to get accurate information and what you can do and expect. A gap is not an expert in anything but the sniffles. 😎

      Thank you for your reply. I'm 42 and I have a neuro appt in August. My gp requested the mri that's why the results went back to him. It's the waiting game that frustrates me .

    Helen,  yeah, the waiting is hard, but just try not to obsess about it til then.  Are you having headaches and if so, what other symptoms are you having? Hang in there. 😎

      Helen,  I have no idea what is wrong with you but would love for you to keep us updated once you see the neuro.  Good luck, girl.  I'll be thinking of you. 😎
