MS & Psoriasis

ConcernedAunt posted:
I have a niece who has MS and experiences back muscle spasms in her legs. She also has psoriasis, covering most of her body. The doc wants to put in a baclofen pump in her brain to help relieve the spasms. Her MS is in remission at the moment but is told if they put this pump in her brain they would not be able to do MRIs to see if her MS comes back. They would have to remove the pump. Also, she is worried about psoriasis developing on her brain?? Has anyone has these two problems together and had the pump put in? The doc says he has other ways to see if the MS comes back but MRI Is the best way???
