Houston Here I Come

Well, I am off to Houston in the wee hours of the morning. I have tons of reports to let Dr. Brod see and hope that he is really an LLMD. My LLMD called today and said he feels it is NOT MS and everything is LD. He was looking over some reports I dropped off copies of, but he did not have the last 2 MRI's showing the Lhermitte's sign. He said most of what he was seeing was non-specific and could be from LD damage. I told him I was seeing this specialist tomorrow and we would see what he thought since he was supposed to have treated LD as well.

It makes you really sit and think that there must be some sort of tie between these disease like LM, MS, Parkinsons, ALS, and all the others that get lumped in these groups. Maybe bacteria really cause all of them, but if not caught early enough, the damage is the long term problem. With all of the differing ideas on treatment and diagnosis of LD and MS, it seems there would be something similar linking them. Just my theory though.......
