hi everyone! I've been reading on here for months after my husbands diagnosed in June. Here's the thing... Second opinion doctors did the usual. Emg, blood, MRI. A spinal tap showed slightly elevated levels of both protien (561) and cell count (4 in one vile, 7 in another). We just got the results from the MRI and it shows a bright spot in the c spine, inflammation. I'm praying that there is no other ALS patient who have had these outcomes. But I need to know if anyone has? Is this really good news? Hey Wright? Al? You both seem to have a good handle on this medical stuff!
