Pat,
By any chance was it on/in or near your brain stem? I also tested positive for Rheumatoid factor but he is doing more tests on that one. he said that would explain some of the pain but not the fascics and the hyperreflexia.
Thanks,
jennifer

When I had my mri 9 yrs ago I had small lesions on in the white matter of my brain and was intially diagnosed with MS. Then I went to a MS specialist and told that the lesions I had were not MS lesions. I was so glad at that time and all the symptoms that I had then went away after I stopped taking orthotrycylene pill. So I dont know what it means and my als doc saw the mri, my new one that had them still on there but with no significant change and did not think much of them......not sure about my stem....

I wish you the best of luck in this and maybe you are the right track...
