Avatar f tn I would be very interested in knowing what has been your experience treating folks living with Multiple Sclerosis (MS) and Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine. I have created and run a website and I would love to talk to you about showing my visitors about Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine and promoting products or services thru my website. I would appreciate you letting me know if this is something you might be interested.

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 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.....
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.

152264 tn?1280354657 The disease, researchers now report, is the monkey equivalent of multiple sclerosis. And it appears to be caused by a virus – adding support to the possibility that multiple sclerosis in humans can be triggered by a viral infection. Experts say the discovery could help expedite the search for more effective treatments.
Avatar m tn Nerve infections as in Lyme’s disease too should be investigated. Multiple sclerosis and G B Syndrome (less likely) are two other possibilities. Please consult your PCP for primary examination followed by proper referral. Take care!
Avatar f tn Relapsing Polychondritis, causes recurring episodes of inflammation of cartilage structures and other connective tissues, and could account for the different types of symptoms you experience along with the relapsing/remitting pattern.... You've also been dx with RLS which is a sensorimotor neurologically based disorder less commonly known as Willis-Ekbom Disease, it can be both a primary or a secondary issue due to a known medical condition, medical side effects etc etc.
Avatar m tn for example when I buy groceries at Kroger, I have to cover my mouth with a scarf or with my jacket when I get some milk. I already saw a lot of specialist, receive dif diagnosis and treatments (Thyroids medicine, eyes studies, ears, I got an operation for my sinusitis, I took allergy injections for years, I use the APNEA machine to sleep, etc), but at the end I feel exactly the same….even two doctors said that this is the way I am and I should man up. I really need some light in my case.
Avatar f tn The course and the treatment really depend on what the exact cause is. Multiple sclerosis, vasculitis, and other disorders each have their own treatments. Evaluation by a pediatric neurologist is recommended, so that the exact type of leukodystrophy can be diagnosed and appropriate treatment initiated. Thank you for this opportunity to answer your questions, I hope you find the information I have provided useful, good luck.
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 These can be due to diabetes, hypothyroidism, Lyme’s Lupus, vitamin B 12 deficiency, multiple sclerosis and many other causes. Injury to nerve either by muscle pull, or an accident is another cause. You need to consult your PCP first and get routine tests for this. Then you may need to consult a neurologist. Take care!
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 We've added itching and double vision as symptoms to the Multiple Sclerosis Tracker. We've also added overexertion to the events section. Inderal/propranolol, anticholinergics, antidepressants, carbamazepine, gabapentin, prochlorperazine and codeine phosphate have all been added to the MS Tracker.
Avatar m tn If the patient clinically exhibits symptoms of another white matter disease process such as multiple sclerosis, the patient could return for contrast enhanced images to evaluate for acute or active disease" Basically what I'm looking for is the bottom line, what's wrong? What kind of treatments are involved? Or simply what does all of that mean? Any help would be greatly appreciated thank you so much.
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!
