My story started about a year ago, when I woke up one morning, 8 months pregnant, and the right side of my face was numb. I called my doctor and they admitted me for observation, doing bloodwork and an MRI. The MRI did show one brain lesion. Since I was pregnant, the told me we would do a repeat MRI after the baby was born. About 5 weeks after my son was born, I again had an episode of facial numbing and again 2 or 3 days after that. So I called the neurologist who did the MRI and told them of the episodes. He told me to come in right away. Again, they found a second small brain lesion. After that, they did bloodwork galore, and 2 spinal taps. So far, everything has been negative for MS. More recently, I've had 2 concussions from falling when both my legs were numb, my numbness is not only in my face and legs, but arms, shoulders and feet as well. Also, I have been having temporary bouts of amnesia, lacking in concentration, and sometimes I can't feel that the hot water is hot. Basically, my neurologist has given up on me, and the Mayo Clinic thought physical migraine! I don't think so. What else could be wrong with me? I am 31, physically fit, no major conditions or disorders. I have IBS mildly, acid reflux mildly, and had a hysterectomy last year. Can someone please point me in another direction?

  • Lyme Disease and the coinfections mimick MS. It also causes brain lesions..I had the Mri for ms and I didn't have lesions. But had many of your symptoms, so they said it was Fibro, Now its Lyme...Do a search and check this link out www.lymenet.org. Good Luck
