This is Dr. David

I can understand your worries about abnormal marrow hyperplasia

usually this is seen on T2 weighted MRI scan images.

this can happen often normally as we all get older actually.

I take it that your CBC complete blood count numbers of your white and red blood cells are normal.

have you had a bone marrow biopsy? that most likely will be normal as well.

I am sorry about your hospital admission in June.

did your symptoms get better from June?

did you see a neurologist who did testing for you for MS?
