Avatar f tn Is there any way to add MS symptoms that aren't on your list? For example, one of my worst ones is itching, so I'd like to add it. Thanks!
Avatar f tn what are signs and symptoms of MS? I have optic neuritis and would like to know other symptoms.
Avatar f tn In the thread this was on before, the person said the symptoms moved and would start in one arm and move up and around to the other side. MS tingling/numbness/weakness doesn't move in that fashion. Our symptoms pretty much pick a problem spot and stay put with the exception of L'hermittes, which is an electrical zapping that travels like a lightning bolt. As for presenting on both sides, can we review just a couple things that might help.
Avatar m tn They haven't found any definite links between viral infections and MS. They've seen several correlations between common viruses and MS, but nothing has pointed directly at one disease more than the other. At any rate, leaving the meningitis untreated for 4 days would cause some neurogical problems, but it wouldn't cause MS.
429700 tn?1308007823 I was doing some research on migraines because I'm having trouble, and came across this site which I'd like to share. There's information about the DMD's and headaches and information about lesions and headaches. There's usually a question that pops up about whether or not people with MS get more headaches, and it appears that there's a connection. http://www.geocities.com/HotSprings/3468/caffeine-headache.

I have fever after 4 and half month later.doctor said it was a typhoid fever but when treatment start mouth ulcer is there and the treatment finish the mouth ulcer is disappeared......is there any chance of condom breakage.im sure that i ejuculate in the condom and there is no breakage as the tip..
Avatar f tn Are MS symptoms generally one-sided? Or are they bilateral? I was under the impression that they presented predominantly on one side. Most of my issues are on my left, but that doesn't preclude the occasional annoyance on the right side. I don't recall where I got this impression, what article I read or what site or whatever. Just something in the back of my head. Any sites to research on this??
Avatar f tn HOOK in the public HIV Prevention forum of MedHelp, TEAK and the other moderators maintain that oral sex in all forms is a zero risk activity. Would you agree with this assessment? I TOTALLY AGREE / DR GARCIA The observation on thousand and thousand of observations is that HIV is not spread by oral sex (of any sort). DR.
Avatar m tn 2nd consultant i saw i mentioned that my symptoms were exactly the same as MS. He said i didnt have this and that i had a dysfunctional neuro disorder, and because my symptoms had improved, he said if i fell ill again that i needed to see a neuropsychologist because he thought it was in my head.
Avatar f tn Your clear MRI and entire list of symptoms is suggesting that its unlikely to be due to a neurological condition like MS, MS literally means many scars and the symptoms are caused by those brain and or spinal cord lesions (scars). RRMS doesn't typically 'present' with so many different types of issues, your symptoms are generally all over, in all peripherals, unrelated to MS etc and when there isn't any lesions, understandably conditions like MS become very unlikely.....
Avatar n tn Hence, prevention methods should include a healthy lifestyle, and a combination
Avatar f tn Hi Helen and welcome, Unfortunately, there are a lot of medical conditions that have a lot of the same or similar symptoms associated with MS, but i'm actually stumped on how someone of your age and symptoms could end up seeing a geneticist before you've even seen a neurologist or had an MRI.....
Avatar f tn The Problem with Special Diets While many different diets have been proposed as a treatment, or even a cure, for the signs and symptoms of MS, evidence of effectiveness is very limited. There is some evidence that a diet low in saturated fats and supplemented by Omega 3 (from fatty fishes, cod-liver oil, or flaxseed oil) and Omega 6 (fatty acids from sunflower or safflower seed oil and possibly evening primrose oil) may have some benefit for people with MS.
Avatar n tn 4 days later I developed a mild sore throat, tickly cough and felt a bit off.These symptoms are still with me 3 weeks later. I have read that oral (especially without ejaculation) is very low risk but it is these symptoms that are causing me to worry. What are the chances that I have caught some thing Dr.?
Avatar m tn Is is possible that the only symptoms you have for HIV is only cough and mouth ulcers and not having fever and swollen lymph nodes? Because now I have 2 mouth sores and a cough.
Avatar m tn *Some* MS lesions are initially mistaken for small vessel ischemia, particularly if you are older. You don't mention your age. I had the problem of non-typical lesions at first, with the radiologist suggesting ischemia because of my advanced age, relatively speaking, for an MS diagnosis. However, over time and in view of increasing abnormalities upon neurological examination, the true problem of MS became clear. Radiologists know virtually nothing about you and your overall health picture.
