Here is My Question:
I had a stroke on 08/17/20.I had MRI’s which show a large lesion on my spinal cord L3-L4. Also my spinal tap shows higher protein levels in my CSF. Prior to stroke my balance was off and was falling. Since my stroke I have chronic weakness in left arm and limited mobility. I still have the problem and am now going on 3 months since the stroke. From what I’ve read it’s uncommon to be caused by my stroke. Both my legs are chronic with numbness which I’ve had for roughly over 12 months and I'm still weeks out from seeing my neurologist. Would so appreciate answers if I have MS. While in the hospital the neurologist said it’s likely that I do. I would just like to confirm it. Also, are flare ups mainly old symptoms that come back or do they mean a new lesion.
