488198 tn?1493875092 A Genetic Cause For Multiple Sclerosis Is Identified And Funded By Science Patron, Jeffrey Epstein The CYP27B1 gene is discovered by Oxford University to be a leading cause for multiple sclerosis NEW YORK, June 15, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- A recent study at Oxford University in England and published in Annals of Neurology, has identified a gene that causes vitamin D deficiency and may also be the cause of multiple sclerosis.
Avatar f tn I am 49 and have both addisons and multiple sclerosis. I was diagnosed with MS 20 years ago and addisons 2 years ago. Does any one else have both and if so did you develop he addisons symptoms after a steroid dose increase with an MS flareup.
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?
1422615 tn?1334064234 Preimplantation Genetic Diagnosis is something that my Re suggested. I have had RM Or RPL Recurrent Pregnancy Losses. He also said that it tells u the sex of the baby. I can give u more info i off of the webpage if u need it. PGD is the use of genetic testing technology to evaluate the embryos for chromosome or genetic abnormalities. There are different reasons why PGD may be performed. There are also different techniques that are available for the genetic evaluation of embryos.
Avatar n tn Hi, Long term use and overdosage of Paxil does cause myopathy, dizziness and vertigo in some patients. I would suggest you to go for MRI of the brain and spine to rule out Multiple Sclerosis and Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis. This will give a diagnosis whether your symptoms are due to medication overdose or neurological disease. The significant symptoms of these diseases are balance problems along with other neurological symptoms. Please consult a neurologist for the same. Hope this helps you.
Avatar f tn Recent studies In 2005, researchers at the Serono Genetics Institute (SGI) achieved a major milestone in identifying and creating a register of genes involved in Multiple Sclerosis (MS). For the first time in this disease area, researchers identified 80 genes involved in the inflammatory and neuro-degenerative pathways of MS, based on a 40% genome scan comparing the genetic profile of a total of 1,800 people with MS and healthy individuals in different populations.
1478560 tn?1314628853 You need to be evaluated for multiple sclerosis too. Multiple sclerosis is a chronic demyelinating syndrome where the disease phase is characterized by active phase and remissions. 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.
382218 tn?1341181487 6% had relapsing remitting multiple sclerosis, 9.4% primary progressive multiple sclerosis and 6% clinically isolated syndrome. Nearly 40% of our multiple sclerosis patients with disease duration >10 years (mean = 16.2 ± 5.3 years) remained with no or mild disability (Expanded Disability Status Scale [EDSS] 3). Also, about 30% of patients with relapsing remitting multiple sclerosis showed benign disease evolution (EDSS 3) more than 20 years (mean = 24.0 ± 3.3) after onset.
1410068 tn?1282729167 Hi Limbo land friends, I have finally recieved a confirmed diagnosis that I do in fact have Multiple Sclerosis. So I will be leaving you all. I hope and pray that each one of you find peace and good health. It is in Gods hands or so they tell me. Thank you all for the support and helpful information. I will be moving on to the Multiple Sclerosis group now.
Avatar m tn I found this site the other day and it also has good articles on MS research. file:///Users/Charley/Desktop/Multiple%20Sclerosis%20Resource%20Centre.
Avatar n tn However, if persistent, it may indicate nerve damage or certain disorders of the central nervous system such as restless leg syndrome, multiple sclerosis, carpel tunnel syndrome, alcoholism, hypothyroidism, medications, or vitamin B12 deficiency, to name a few.
Avatar f tn Demyelination is due to a loss of myelin from the nervous system. The most well known demyelinating disease is Multiple Sclerosis. Demyelination has no popular known cure, though work is going on in the fields of genetic engineering, tissue culture, stem cell therapy. Everyone working in these fields hopes to see a result soon, due to the debilitating nature of these diseases.
