MRI Results

Well the results are in and they are very positive. I have no new lesions! I was also delighted to learn that my existing lesions have actually grown a bit smaller since my last MRI. I actually did not know this was possible. Can they disappear too? I didn't think they could but someone on another blog mentioned that some of their's have. Has this happened to anyone else?

I have not been feeling all that great the last two weeks or so, first headachy, achy and a little nauseaous last week, then this week a cold but the MRI results really lit a fire under me. I even stayed late at work so I wouldn't have to bring stuff home. Anyway... something I'm doing must be working so I'll stay mellow, watch my diet and stick with the yoga and hope that the future comes in a promising fashion.

Awesome news. If they can demyelinate they can also remyelinate, I believe. Mine didn't become black holes they just went away so they must be okay now.

Then again, I could be way wrong but it's good news for both of us!

Enjoy the weekend, Weeble Girl


Great News. Yes, lesions can come and go. The body really tries to repair itself and often succeeds.

So much research is trying to figure a way to encourage the body to do more remyelinating.

My neurologist often reemphasizes that MRIs taken weekly would look different. But it is really cool when specific lesions can be seen to shrink.

Yay! Remyelination!

Great news! Congratulations! It's amazing how positive MRI results can make you feel like you can conquer the world, isn't it?

News like that is worth getting three MRIs in six months. That's worth visualizing - for all of us!

Thanks for all the awesome comments and info. Now I just need to adjust my own thinking about all this.
