I also had a negative spinal tap but was still diagnosed with MS. My neurologist told me that it wasn’t unusual. I also have 10 lesions on my brain.

6 Brain lesions, two very distinct lesions that my diagnosis was made by, confirmed also by another doctor, MS specialist.. symptoms also play a very big part, i had symptoms for many years before my diagnosis
