The latest neurologist appointment was more remarkable for what I didn’t find out than what I learned. I will have to wait and see if any symptoms appear between now and April 2013. More tests in an MRI and spinal tap will have to show a brain clear of lesions and signs of multiple sclerosis, MS, to determine if I ever had it.
