I have all the symptoms of arachnoiditis but I also have clonus at the achilles tendon. Dr's are saying that means I have MS or a brain lesion...anyone know if arachnoiditis can cause clonus? I asked Dr. today if electrolyte imbalance can cause but he said no, if high sodium can cause seizures couldn't it cause clonus? Dr. gave me medrol dose pack to take the week prior to brain scan (in case of arachnoiditis) to prevent a "flare up". Is it safe to do that way? Or should I get a definitive "no arachnoiditis" dx before proceeding with MRI of brain? Thanks:confused:
