I have posted in the past few months about my "relapse" symptoms of CNSV diagnosed and treated in 2005. I just received the report written after my first visit to new rheumatologist. He writes that the clinical picture is less likely a relapse of my CNS vasculitis and is "most likely due to previous damage in her brain white matter." I do not meet with him again for another month or two after another MRI is done. Does anyone have any ideas or knowledge about how the damaged matter can be causing headache, numbness, fatigue, brain fog, seizure, livedo, petechia, etc. These symptoms have been intense for the last three months. I probably have experienced some of these for years but why all of a sudden would I have a seizure and be quite ill if my brain damage is likely responsible. Thanks!!!
