I have a question. What type of sx would a T2 lesion cause?

According to Snoopy's posting in the Lesion Location & Symptoms thread, T2 lesions can affect the "heart, including its valves and covering coronary arteries; lungs bronchial tubes":

http://neurotalk.psychcentral.com/thread3436.html

The thing is though, that EVERYTHING below that lesion can also be affected:



I have a T5 (I think) and C 2/3 lesion, and mostly what I get is severe numbness up to that point in my body. That numbness causes pain, sensory symptoms, etc. below the level of the lesion. I will also have bladder, bowel, breathing, etc. problems with it.

I would think you would at least (@ a minimum) have numbness if your spinal lesion is acting up, but it depends on how affected (inflammed?) the lesion is as to HOW MUCH problems you will experience.

What's going on, Kelly?

Default T1 and T2 are lesion types and don't refer to a location

http://www.msinfowiki.ca/index.php?t...e_Imaging_(MRI)

The location of the lesion and whether it is still active (inflamation) will determine the sx if any.

I just remember seeing on my MRI report that I have a T2 lesion and it was still showing up on the last MRI that I had.

The only consistent sx I've had is my numb right hand/arm. I also get frequent bladder infections. Since I've been taking LDN my dizziness/lightheadedness has not been near as bad as it was before.

I tend to not pay attention to my sx so much unless they are new ones. Anything I've never experienced is always reason for concern. But the familiar stuff...even if it gets worse....I just deal with it.

I was stitting here wondering what Chris was saying , when suddenly I realized he is talking about T1/T2 brain lesions . . . and I was talking about the "T" lesions of the spinal cord.

He is right that if you meant any old "T2" lesions, apparent in our MRI's of the brain . . . they most often do not correlate to symptoms specifically.

I answered to lesions in the "2" spot on the Thoracic spinal cord (also referred to as a "T2" lesion) . . . and they do correlate quite accurately with symptoms.

Assuming now from your last response that you mean brain lesions . . .

The active lesions that are 'inflammed' will "enhance" when they use the dye. Even if they are 'older' (T2) lesions that are active again, they still refer to them as "enhancing" lesions (IF they are enhancing again on our MRI).

T2 lesions are the old more "permanent" lesions, that have left plaque, and are not enhancing when they refer to them. They can be exactly the same in the next MRI, or they may have shrunk or grown.

Enhancing lesions usually mean they are "active", and that could indicate you are in an attack. Sometimes they just enhance and you aren't in an attack too . . . and/or sometimes nothing shows as enhancing and you are in an attack . . . but generally speaking, the enhancing one's are what we take the meds for; to "turn out the lights". Hopefully that may also lead to less T2 NON-enhancing lesions (the more permanent type) in the longer run.

Once there is damage (lesions of any kind) in the brain or spine, we can get ongoing symptoms from that lesion. They haven't specifically tied brain lesions with symptoms in the same way as spinal lesions with symptoms . . . but sometimes they try to.

Does that make more sense?

(Thanks Chris . . . I would never have thought of the "other" T2 lesions, as I am a spinal lesion gal. ).

Cherie

Kitty, it's okay to ask questions, but it really isn't necessary to wave your hand like that! Stay in your seat next time!
