  • We are not supposed to read results of your tests, however.. you can google some of the more specific words on the report and try to piece together your symptoms according to what you read. Use much caution when doing this however, as there is a lot of very scary information out there, and much of it may have nothing to do with you, but Drs and radiologists do use these terms quite frequently.

    A demyelinating disease is any disorder that causes damage to the protective covering called myelin sheath surrounding the brain nerves and also the spinal cord. When this myelin sheath has been damaged, the nerve impulses slow or may even stop completely, thereby becoming a cause for certain neurological problems.
