Common Questions and Answers about Multiple sclerosis causes and symptoms


Avatar m tn // If it's possible i'd get it seen by your family dr, the odds of this type of situation being the first presentation of a neurological condition like MS is very unlikely. Hope that helps.....
1025211 tn?1251977152 Most of your symptoms are related to Multiple sclerosis. Multiple sclerosis causes muscle weakness and nerve damage all over the body. Hoarseness may be caused by neck muscle weakness and paralysis of the vocal fold as a result of multiple sclerosis. Hoarseness may or may not be related to the other symptoms. One of the other causes of hoarseness of voice and severe pain in the back is Aortic dissection. It is a serious condition.
Avatar f tn The symptoms of multiple sclerosis are loss of balance, muscle spasms, numbness in any area, problems with walking and coordination, tremors in one or more arms and legs. Bowel and bladder symptoms include frequency of micturition, urine leakage, eye symptoms like double vision uncontrollable rapid eye movements, facial pain, painful muscle spasms, tingling, burning in arms or legs, depression, dizziness, hearing loss, fatigue etc.
Avatar f tn Hi, The most probable cause of the symptoms that you have mentioned is Multiple sclerosis. Other causes could be brain tumour or Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis. Multiple sclerosis is a demyelinating disease that affects the nerves of the brain and spine. The symptoms are- brain fog, memory problems, numbness and tingling, headaches, muscle weakness and many others. Please go for the CT scan. MRI is more detailed and accurate. Please consult a neurologist for the diagnosis and treatment.
Avatar f tn I am 17 have been seeing flashes of lights in corner of my eyes cause it seems like the light is almost dragging my phone,tv, lamp etc. I see floaters when I'm driving and just recently had a problem with my eyes seeing a consistent flash that didn't go away for 30 minutes. I also have trouble looking at my TV it's almost like I can't see the white letters on the guid straight when I sit on the couch but up closer I'm fine.
Avatar f tn Many of us are in limbo and have symptoms like yours. Many have been trying to get an accurate dx for years. It's awful! You are in good company here. I doubt if any of us can say what the chances are that you have MS. There are so many things that mimic the disease. If you think your doctor has stopped looking, find a good neurologist. Read the health pages here and elsewhere, and don't give up on finding out what is wrong, whether it is MS or something else!
1517572 tn?1290796418 I have been diagnosed with HHV6, EBV, coxsackie B4, Post Osterial Tachycardia, Chlamydia Pnemonia, and CFS. My symptoms go on and on. I have dizziness, muscle weakness and pain, strange sensations through out body especially arms and legs, ringing in my ears, tremors/shakiness, strange vision disturbances, headaches and facial pain, and extreme fatigue. I had an MRI that showed one lesion in my brain, a hemangioma in the thoratic region and some mild degeneration in my cervical spine.
1435024 tn?1283573524 I have vertigo and have had it for years and did not realize what it was. My symptoms are worse with everything when my menses comes or a few days before it does. I am very afraid and it makes me really depressed because of my children. I feel the ms like symptoms but i dont know if it a panic attack thing or what. I also get migraines but they are not usually painful. I would just get the aura and the one side of the body affected.
1029680 tn?1286919361 Hi Love, I like that MAma much better than madame! :-) Almost eveyrone with MSsuffers from constipation, often on a regular basis. When you can't go, that stuff just sits there and incubates and produces more and more gas. Or at least it does for me. Trying to stay regular is really important to help this problem - the best way to start is watching your diet and what you eat, pay attention to what causes you more probnlems than other foods.
Avatar f tn My dad was also sprayed with Agent Orange and has numerous medical problems and so do my brother and I; both conceived after Vietnam. I would go to Then under "Related Diseases" click on "Veteran's Disease's" or under the heading "Benefits" click on "Disability Compensation" and then read and click on other links within those categories.
Avatar m tn Other medications are used (like the Solu-Medrol) during attacks, and to help with symptoms (like Provigil for fatigue). There are other medications that are used when the CRAB drugs aren't working, but have risks and side effects (like Tysabri). On this site, there's a lot of information about medication and treatment, relapses, and pseudo-relapses, etc. in the Health Pages (see upper right hand corner).
Avatar f tn A Neurologist at the Cleveland Clinic told me that difference between Fibromyalgia and MS is that MS causes brain damage and Fibromyalgia does not, but other than that the symptoms are the same. I have been diagnosed with both and then told they weren’t sure if I have MS. I do believe that Fibromyalgia flares are similar the MS Flares. I don’t particularly care if I have one or the other because they both suck.
Avatar f tn The hospital had a new MRI machine since the last time and the doctor attributed these lesions to the new MRI. I have had increased symptoms of fatigue and in recent weeks a tingling along both of my legs, my feet hurt and I am having alot of back pain that sort of circles around. Should I start with my PCP to see if it is my back or go straight to my neurologist? I am on Copaxone, but I was off of the shots for 6 mos prior to this last MRI for insurance reasons.
Avatar n tn It has multiple symptoms and signs and is a diagnosis of exclusion. The symptoms of multiple sclerosis are loss of balance, muscle spasms, numbness in any area, problems with walking and coordination, tremors in one or more arms and legs.
Avatar m tn One of them said it is all due to ur anxiety ( Cause i do not have any bladder problems and dizziness, numbness tingling all is due to anxiety) but one said its Multiple Sclerosis+ anxiety. My MRI and EEG were clear. Currently i have high frequency of muscle tingling through out my body only when i am lying on bed plus i see double vision of any statement especially ( white in colour) on TV and laptop. Is it MS? Should I start taking Med for MS or just let it be and hope it will go away?
Avatar f tn Hi, kak- I'm sorry to hear of your bf diagnosis. That in itself is scary enough for both of you and your family and friends. I don't know how much you know about MS so I encourage you to check out our Health Pages, as wobbly said. I assume that your bf is now on some meds for his MS, namely Disease Modifying Drugs (DMD)? If not, I urge him to get started on one of those asap. They do not cure MS but they have good results of slowing down the progression.
1029680 tn?1286919361 Hi, Gas trouble may result from simple causes like an improper diet. Please take a diet rich in fruits and vegetables. Avoid fast food and canned foods. Go for exercise regularly- stretching, cycling, swimming. Take OTC carminatives to expel gas. These measures may help. Please go for a USG abdomen and consult a physician if the symptoms persist. Hope this helps you. Take care and regards!
