So.. long story short is that ive allot of random health issues previously (you can read about this at http://forums.wrongdiagnosis.com/showthread.php?t=7797&page=3 if you want).
But the bottom line is most of it could be attributed to Lyme, which i tested positive for, and just finished treatment a few weeks ago.
No real noticeable improvement.

However, my Neuro still thinks i may have MS. And again, you can read that all in the other link.

But my problem now is that one of the MRI's shows a 'spot' on my spine.
Which correlates with some tingling i get in my hand, and foot.. and this past couple weeks one of my calves and a spot on my thigh also.
the reason i know this correlates is because if its tingling already and i look down, the tingling flairs up.

The weird thing is, aside from the thigh, the some of the tingling seems to be brought on by vibrations. Weird. Like my foot will tingling after driving and my hand will tingle after washing my head (that abrasiveness of the action).

However the one on my thigh seems to have a mind of its own and just pulsates, mildely, with no ryme or reason, all day. Maybe that one isnt related. Maybe it is.

Anyhow, if i could just get rid of this tingling problem i would feel nearly normal.

And this whole thing is having a detrimental affect on my relationship as the girl im with wants to marry me, and i want to marry her, but i wont do it if im just going to get worse. And she is not happy to hear that im not feeling better.

And this whole 'spot' on the spine thing isnt clear to me what its related to. Which i guess isnt all that bad because it gives me some hope that maybe i can do something about it. What also gives me hope is about 2 months ago, when the foot started, my penis was doing it also. That one has gone away completly for some reason. (I should mention that it went away before the Lyme treatment though. But since then the calf is a new one and so is the thigh).

But on the other hand.. since i dont have a clear cut case of MS as i belive i pass 90% of the MS's tests and the ones i dont can be attributed to Lyme.
But Lyme doesnt cause this type of 'spot' on the neck.. atleast i havent read anything about it.
Its pretty confusing what to do.

So, i guess all im looking for is some suggestions or ideas or anything regarding this 'spot' and if there is anything i can do about it.
