What is the difference between white spots and lesions on the brain?

Posted by cindylee

The last MRI I had was in 2002....which had not changed all that much from 94 when I was originally diagnosed with MS. After 4 years...doctors began to question diagnosis. I still continue to have symptoms that have worsened, and even most recently been speculated that I have MG. I just had MRI done last week and there are 8 new lesions.....and the radiologist wrote highly suggestive of MS. Is it possible its taken this long for the MS to reveal itself clearly? I am scheduled for lumbar puncture next week.

Could I have that many new lesions/white spots and it not be MS or being something else? I am 55 years old.
