maybe MS maybe not ?!?
hellsdancer posted:
i was diagnosed with MS a couple of years ago. My MRI showed lots of legions. the doctor ordered a spinal tap and when that was ok he said i did not have MS. My question: can I still have MS? even with a "good" spinal fluid test?

the answer is yes!

As Dave says the short answer is yes . Find an MS specialist and have your testing redone . If it , is not MS you need to find out what is causing all those leisions .

If the try to tell you it has to be positive I was dignosed by two sets of MRI's and a physical despite negative spinal tap .

It can be a long road to diagnosis but it is up to you to advocate for yourself so stay at the doctors till you are sure the are right ,stay in touch and let us know how you are doing.
