NBCT, Thanks for the post. Q1:" ...if something like an event recorder can detect changes in a rythmn strip if someone uses it during an episode of subtle symptoms like back pain, shoulder pain, lightheadedness, or palpitations?" Event recorders are good at detecting changes in rhythm, but bad at detecting changes that might indicate ischemia (def: inadequate blood flow). Q2:"Would changes related to ischemia be obvious at that time, or is a twelve lead the best method?
The coworker had been out <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> the woods <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>over</span> the weekend. The iceman found <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> Austria was determined to be over 4,000 years old. They also found b.burgdorferi in his remains. So yes, your mother could have aquired it in the 1960's. it turns out it isn't a new disease at all. it is a very old disease. Only our knowledge of it is new, and still developing. B.burgdorferi is more likely to cause the bulls eye rash and arthritis. B.
Is it possible to accumulate multiple sytems <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>over</span> a period of time? I am not yet diagnosed and don't know where the search will lead. I do know that my world has been turned upside down more so since 2006. The short version. I was relatively healthy other than asthma and hypothyroid prior to 2006. I got ecoli (the really bad strain) in 2006 and complications followed that required hospitalization. Plural effusions, collapse lung and full of fluid.
I am a 45-year-old <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>women</span> who <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>over</span> the past six months, has been having a myriad of symptoms that are consistent with multiple sclerosis. While pregnant with my last child 19 years ago, I was diagnosed with optic neuritis. Approximately 8 years later, I was diagnosed once again. I had an MRI of the brain at the time and it was negative. Since I did not have any other symptoms of ms at the time, I did not follow with any other tests.
if you have had all the testing, and multiple times <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> many cases, and they are all negative, it is time to find a doctor that you will listen to and BELIEVE! And believe me, I DO know how it feels! I used to worry, but never let it affect my life, until one day, a cardiologist took my hand, and stated very clearly, *you are NOT GOinG TO DIE from these PVC's*. And I BELIEVED him! And I ignore them. Even after I did get heart disease!
My Doctor advised i had Fibro about 5 years ago after going back and forward to the doctors and not given any answers but was still in terrible pain, was like they looked at me like it was all in my head, recently had another bad episode started to experience terrible pain in the middle of my back when i arch backwards, it started 3 months after having my daughter, few months later have now got constant tingling <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> my arms and legs, i hurt all <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>over</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> my shoulders and shoulder blades, upper back
I have Multiple Sclerosis (ms). I have lesions <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> my brain stem, thorasic and lower lumbar. I wake up every morning with the feeling that something is between my big toe and second toe upon standing. This is gradually getting worse. I have severe pain in my hands and my arms and hands go numb while sleeping, especially if I am lying on my back! You all should go to a doctor and tell them to refer you to a neurologist as this sounds like a nervous system problem.
I had the same thing about 5 years ago, did a halter with no results. I am <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>50</span>, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> good shape. For me it feels like lactic acid <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> the middle of my chest to start with then goes down my arms, both sides, normally last only about 5 minutes. This time it has been 24 hours with the weekness. Going to the doctor again tomorrow to dig further.
I was a wreck from all that was going on. You see I joined <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> Oct 08. The first time I had heard the would multiple sclerosis linked with my name had been in Aug 08, just a few months prior. So I made a profile with no pic and choose the name saveone because I am passionate about saving discarded animals. There is a saying, "Save one until there are none". Now that's my story and I am sticking to it ;0) take care and live well, terry ps.
Simple activities such as meal preparation can create extra heat, so consider preparing your meal on the grill outside, or drag out that crock pot and cook that meal <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> one pot that you don’t have to stand <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>over</span> and stir. Consider making multiple meals at one time in the kitchen – freeze meals for future use, reducing the number of times you have to stand at the stove.
Well, I have been hesitating to post in the past couple days to give myself time to see how this thing progresses. It has now been 4 1/2 weeks since my symptoms started (one month to the day, actually). I was not on any medication at the time. currently, I have been pracitcally... dare I say it?... VIBRATION FREE!! for the past 3 days or so. I say "practically" because there are rare moments during the day when I feel a slight hint of the buzzing... mostly when I am driving.
pob here again..... STILL ITCHinG now ive got red swollen spots all <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>over</span>, my itch is worse <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> the morning but when i went to the doc he ruled out scabies , allergies etc anyway he's given me a prescription for extra strong antihystamines will be getting them tomorrow if they work will let everyone know but i'm not holdin my breath!!!!! oh does anyone know of an allergy to the amino acid L-ARGANinE coz i just started them.
Our 38-year-old patient’s multiple sclerosis relapse may have contributed to coronary vasospasm <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> a similar fashion. Although her spinal cord was not imaged, head MRI revealed multiple white matter lesions; at least 2 lesions were acute. The exact mechanisms responsible for coronary artery vasospasm have not been determined, and causes may vary from patient to patient.
I haven't read that the amount of lesions have anything to do with the stage of ms, for example PPms shows more in the spinal cord than in the brain. Approximately <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>50</span>% of patients with RRms convert to Secondary Progressive Multiple Sclerosis (SPms) within 10 years of disease onset. After 30 years, this figure rises to 90%. At any one time, the Relapsing-Remitting form of the disease accounts around 55% of all people with multiple sclerosis.
Reading the above posts I notice people have been getting this in other parts of body so with the advent of this big one on my upper chest I am now concerned about having a bleed <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> a vital organ,( ie brain = catastophic results) I'm <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> my early <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>50</span>'s, rarely take pain relievers, and my only meds are Prevacid and Flovent, along with supplements, physically fit from lots of cardio and weightlifting, low BP and pulse.
Because as some of you may know, strep b is a natural bacteria <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> some of us, about <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>50</span>% of us from what I understand. It lives <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> our gut and bowels. The problem arises when the strep takes over because the good bacteria was diminished at some point. So, if the good flora is not reestablished after killing the strep, whether by antibiotics or in my case Gintin Violet the strep will migrate back into the vagina via the bowels and take over again.
About the blood clot worry----- I truly don't believe you have one or you would have stroked out or been dead by now. (Gallows humor! Forgive me----- but it's sometimes the only type of humor I have some days.) First determine if your MRI was without contrast all the way through the procedure or if just through part of it. Some MRIs are done with no contrast at the beginning and then with contrast through the rest. Now you can see why we keep all our records.
Since then I've noticed it multiple times a day <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> multiple physical positions. I asked my father who is a doctor and he said it was probably a pinched nerve or something, and didn't seem very concerned. However, he is seldom concerned with my health worries, so I don't really trust him. I'd love to find a list of problems this could be a symptom of.
I did once have an EEG show an irregular heart beat but always been good since, no heart disease found and no one in my family has ever had heart disease. The only thing <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>over</span> the years has been borderline anemia, all the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>women</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> my family are the same but my levels have been consistent since my 30's. I've probably been blood tested for more than what i'm aware of, though the exact what i couldn't say.
June 07, 2010 SAN ANTONIO -- Multiple sclerosis (ms) patients taking <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>over</span>-the-counter vitamin D aren't getting what they're paying for, or what their neurologists recommend, according to a study presented here. The mean vitamin D content from 10 OTC brands was only 33% of what the label claimed, with the actual content ranging from less than 1% to 82% of the advertised level.
So what do you do to prevent deficiency of Vitamin D and Multiple Sclerosis? ms is on the rise <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> many countries, especially those <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> Northern Countries like Scotland and Canada. And it is particularly on the rise for women in those countries. Theories abound, but the one that makes the most sense is that we are just spending a lot less time outdoors and in the sun.
<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> this form of multiple sclerosis a person who initially had relapsing-remitting multiple sclerosis begins to develop a gradual deterioration in nerve function, with or without relapses. After a number of years many people who have had relapsing/remitting multiple sclerosis will pass into a secondary progressive phase of the disease. This is characterised by a gradual worsening of the disease between relapses.
Mulitple Sclerosis is a disease that acts groups of nerves <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> the brain and spinal cord. Usually the attacks come with a combination of symptoms, but there are so many possible symptoms that it would be impossible to list them all. People can have vision problems, weakness, dizziness, muscle cramps, places on their skin that feel tingly or are numb, and many, many more. One of the major and most common symptoms is incredibly bad fatigue.
I had an baby got an epidural,since the epidural I been having severe lower back pain and numbness and tingling <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> my right. Now this what the doctor have told me since. Before I tell can tell you can you tell me the probem.One doctor told me I haveBack Pain with Sciatica, Hematuria and he went on im his notes I have ms and the ms is called Arthralgia and Muscle problem.
I told her a CT scan gives the equivalent of 220 X-rays all at once, and I have had <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>over</span> 97 seperate X-rays <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> the past few years already! And now a hematologist is telling me I might have cancer of my bone marrow! I told her I have tremendous pain and weakness in both knees when I try to get out of the bathtub. (I am basically disabled in both knees, and have to use a bathtub chair now.) And the bones in both legs hurt when I stand up and put weight on them.
so I know how most of you feel) I had began to wonder if I were crazy or something myself so reading all this makes me feel better. Oh, I've also been referred to a Neurologist for possible Multiple Sclerosis so the doctor said it may have something to do with that but after reading this...I don't think so.
i have all those symptoms too (burning an tingling sensations all <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>over</span> my body), and i always think that it has to be multiple sclerosis (ms). don`t you think so? anna-lena.
When I try to blow my nose I almost double <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>over</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> pain from the pain <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> my head. I had one doctor tell me tha t I had absolutely nothing wrong and I was just imagining this. I am sitting here right now and it has taken me almost 20 minutes to type this up because of the pain I am in.If I press my thumb right in the middle of my eyes above my nose, some of the pressure dies down. Same as if I press my thumb on my temples. My left eye is killing me.
The only thing I can tie together here is the fact that I too sleep on my stomach with my right arm under my pillow, I worked for a roofing company doing hard labor two summers <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> a row (bent <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>over</span> most of the day, lifting and what not) and I tend to sit <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> a not-so ergonomical way while I play guitar on average of two hours a a day.
Multiple sclerosis is twice as common <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>women</span> as <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> men. An estimated 400,000 individuals have multiple sclerosis nationally. According to the Multiple Sclerosis Society, the average annual cost of multiple sclerosis to each affected individual is approximately $57,000, and the total cost can exceed $3,000,000 over an individual’s lifetime. The annual cost of treating all people who suffer from multiple sclerosis in the United States is approximately $20,000,000,000.
