I did call the MS society here and they were very helpful, and sent me
tons of information. The woman I talked to said that the MRI is
really meaningless as far as deciding if he has MS or not, unless it
shows changes, because a lot of the changes are too small to show up
on an MRI. So that was a real bummer.
On the bright side, my son is only 4yo, so the odds are in his favor.
The woman at the MS Society said she had never heard of a child that
young being diagnosed in Utah. So either he'll be a first for this
area, or he has something else. (Guess that explains why that one
doctor was so excited.)
She mentioned a pediatric MS clinic in Toronto, but hopefully we don't
have to travel all that way. Plus, what if he has something else?
