Thought id start a new post on antibodies after the interesting replies regarding BTA and autoimmunity.
Recently iv been having lots of tests and scans yet again. The latest has been a brain scan to rule out MS/functional. Report shows some abnormalities including possible demylelination. Personally i dont think i have ms.
As most of us know antibodies are not treated or acknowledged with endos yet there is clear evidence seen on brain scans that high levels of antibodies can cause a rare and serious neurological condition called hashimotos ecephaltis. If this is the case it does not seem unreaonable to me that antibodies without this rare condition can also cause severe neurological problems, is it also possible that HE can present itself with varying degrees on the condition in the same way that ms does from benign ms to PPMS.
HE is apparently a very rare condition but many authors suggest it is undediagnosed, not understood or even heard of by many medics.
Thought i would share this as i beleive my problems are mainly due to Haashimotos but no-one is listening.
