In February, I finally started feeling better except that I have had the following symptoms slowly coming on since February. I have had issues with chronic pain , electrical sensations in my legs, difficulty walking, tripping, falling, Vision blurriness. Sed rate in february was 48, so they started drawing labs on me..sed rate runs from 48 to 59, vit d level 18.8, positive for anticardiolipin antibody igm, positive lupus antcoag pttla, they thought i had lupus, but negative on the ana.

Dear user,

thank you for your questions, increased T2 intensity in those areas could be due to lymphoma, ischemia, neurodegenerative disease, or toxins exposure. As you can see many things could lead to those lesions, sorry i cant tell much from current description but its good that you have an appointment with your neurologist next week he will be able to pin point the problem if there is anything much clearer to you.

best regards,
Dr. Nazzal
