Clarification: You do NOT have "vestibular neuritis", as this is a short-term infection, lasting maybe 2-3 weeks. Would suggest you have otological testing to see if you have Meniere's, otolithic dysfnctn such as benign positional vertigo, or even perilymphatic or endolympatic fistula. See otolaryngologist.

If my 9-month old can sit but not crawl or walk, does she have cerebral palsy?

No: Not necessarily. It is important to discuss these developmental milestones with your pediatrician. Many children reach their developmental stages at different paces than the "average" baby and are perfectly normal. Also, some children have delayed motor skills due to other conditions (such as slightly weak muscles) that may get better with either time or special exercises (physical therapy).

Shows demyelination: Recent revision of the diagnostic criteria for MS have increased the importance of MRI findings. The diagnosis of MS is made sooner in the course of the disease based upon the appropriate history physical findings and MRI findings. The MRI abnormalities suggest demyelination in the brain/spinal cord. If all other causes of demyelination are excluded, ms is the likely cause and treatment can begin.
