Here is My Question:
I went to the hospital due to a droopy left eye. The doctors said it was either a stroke or multiple sclerosis. They did test after test and came to a conclusion that it wasn't a stroke. They then proceeded to have my brain scanned through MRI. The test came back that I had a lesion. The test said: Mildly scattered periventricular and subcortical white matter hyperintensities are identified. The largest is seen in the right centrum semiovale/corona radiata and has the appearance of a Dawson's finger. There is a tiny focus of restricted diffusion seen in the left medulla. I had an MRI with and without contrast on my spine. Both came back negative of any lesions. Anyway, after this test I was scheduled for a lumbar puncture. The test results were kappa free light chain, CSF .1010 H mg/dl<.1000. This is positive. My band test came back CFS bands and olig which was can you give me some clarification on what means could condition still be considered a cis will I have to undergo more MRIs in the future? Thanks so much I love this website.
