Hey, Doc!

Yes, I would have to agree with you. I went to have the EMG/NCV performed yesterday and lo and behold — no neuropathy. I had pretty bad cramping after the test and the doctor noted + Babinski again. My neurologist just hasn’t thought MS, because there are no visible lesions on my MRI, but it was done a while ago, and on older equipment. (1.5 Tesla)

A friend of mine who is a physician (who happens to have MS) had an MRI done on a 1.5 had no lesions show up, and then had one done on a 3.0 Tesla and it showed 6 lesions. Equipment makes a difference!

He has ordered a PET scan, so maybe this will give him an idea of what is going on. I really think it has to be MS, but of course I have not been to medical school. I will leave it up to my doctor. Or some kind of central nervous system disease/disorder as you have said.

Apparently not CIDP. I wish you all the best, and I thank you all very much for replying to my post. I have been frustrated, as I’m sure you all have been at some point. From what I have read about CIDP it is so very fatiguing and misunderstood and frustrating, painful. I wish you all the best! Please feel well!
