Hi Karen, Thanks for your reply. I had aan MRI done about a monthe ago my my neurologist. He said "nothing much" was on the MRI. Except he did say I had "bright spots". He said they basically were meaningless. He also said perhaps at some time in the past I may have had MS and it "burned itself out." My rheumatologist sent me to see him because I was getting a burning, prickly and numbing sensations in my hands, feet, face and top of my head. I will continue to see him every three months. Thanks. J.W.
