My DR has ordered a test for that, today actually, don't have any visual problems, but he is checking anyway. He said it is very rare, but so is first having symptoms of MS at age 51. thanks for any info, no worries about wasting time, I have read everything I can find, and still have a million questions.

I now have had an MRI from Head to tailbone, both with and without contrast. 6 separate MRI's, holy cow is this getting expensive! At least he is sure what he is looking at now. Nothing at all in my head and neck, only my mid back. I still don't understand why the middle of my back makes my balance messed up.View Thread
I have MS lesions on spine, but several mri's of head show absolutely nothing. Main symptoms are in leg. But I have big balance problems, does anyone understand how your spine messes up your balance? I thought balance was in your head (ears mainly)View Thread
