Left HEMIPLEGIA and Multiple Sclerosis
I have left hemiplegia due to suspected Multiple Sclerosis (with clonus of the left foot, weakness of the left leg and partial loss of function in the left hand... No position sense in toes.

Where would the active lesions be ? (brain or spinal cord ?)

Nothing shows up on cranial and spinal MRI even though this is already my second episode of neurological deficit. The first one occured nearly 4 years ago and presented itself in a similar form (with mainly spinal cord involvement and gross elevation of the CSF IgG Index).

Dear Moira,
It is very difficult for me to give you an indication without examining you. Your neurologist should be able to tell you?
