Avatar m tn I am so sorry to hear about your wife's diagnosis and ongoing symptoms. It is really a shock to get this diagnosis and then you worry when the symptoms are not getting better with treatment. But, please be patient with the treatment as it will eventually work and her symptoms will calm down. Is she still in the hospital? The disease is not curable but it can be slowed down as Deb has already explained.

Avatar f tn Oh my, you have been having a difficult time. I am so sorry. It sounds as if your doctor has some sort of news to give you but idk if it's MS. Whether it not it is or isn't, count your blessings that you might have a diagnosis. The alternative means months or years of symtoms with no treatments cause they don't know what you have. Believe me I understand wishing not having anything serious.
Avatar n tn Hi, I can understand what you must be going through. Your symptoms do suggest of Multiple sclerosis and Amylotrophic lateral sclerosis. A series of MRI of brain and spine may be necessary to rule out the diseases. A single MRI may not confirm the disease. You must go for a spinal tap procedure or lumbar puncture for the study of cerebrospinal fluid. It is an important investigation that could rule out or confirm the diagnosis of both the diseases.
