MRI Results, Rashes and Life

Wow that's a title right? Sorry, it's been awhile, but as you all know some days are just harder than others. I seem to be still progressively getting worse, and I haven't managed to take a break yet - between finishing up work and doctor appts. Each day it seems like less and less activity is too much.

My MRI results came in - abnormal of course? I have "at least 7 T2 hyperintense foci scattered and 1 juxtacorital lesion. Of course in English I have no idea that that means (insight is welcome - LOl) but I get that it's abnormal.

I have also developed a rash near the areas that I've been doing the B-12 injections. So until I hear back from my doctor I can't do anymore of those - while they weren't helping with fatigue much - they were helping with pain and I miss them.

I've been doing them for about 2 weeks - had no problem at all and then suddenly developed a quarter size rash on each leg in the area - in fact you could actually see several injection sites within the rash - odd. I wonder if it's because I'm doing them wrong or something (like too slow) - I have no idea - any ideas?

I hope everyone is doing as well as you can and hope to be online a bit more often soon.


  1. Dawn, did you get the rash withthe very first B12 injection? If you did then it's probably an allergic reaction. If you didn't then its possible you are having them to frequently and you are creating an intollerence. How often are you having it and what doseage? I only get mine once a fortnight and I usually don't feel the effects until a couple of days after the injection and then it lasts for most of that 2 week period.

    The T2 hyperintense means the tissue in that area is diferent to the rest, may have excess fluid/water for example. A juxtacorital lesion is a lesion located between the gray matter and white matter in te brain ... so that description really tells you nothing unfortunatly. These are often seen in people with MS and also AIDS. I don't think you need to panic. It is at least nice to have some physical evidence of why you are the way you are right now!

  2. Wow, that's a little scary that the MRI showed stuff. But from what Lee Lee says it doesn't sound too big...except it's just evidence of the symptoms you're having. I hope you get some rest soon. In my experience this can really help with the improvement/healing. Of course it's a little hypocrytical of me to say this right now as I've been busy and am starting to pay the price. Thanks for the updates Dawn.

  3. Dawn, it's been a while since you posted, are you ok? getting worried! xx
