Avatar n tn Three years ago, after years of attempting to ignore growing symptoms of pain and fatigue, and with increasing symptoms of twitches from my torso down, periodic pain in my right arm and hand, numb feet while running, uncontrollable toe-spreading, horrible nighttime nerve pain that made it nearly impossible to sleep for more than cat-naps at a time, and an overall feeling of regular "flu-like" exhaustion during the day, I went to my family practitioner, who after examining me thought I
Avatar m tn Also, there are several other genetic, metabolic, and hereditary disorders that cause neuropathy, and what tests need to be ordered depend on the history and physical examination. With small fiber neuropathy, the EMG/NCS test which measures how nerves conduct electricity and how muscles respond to them may be normal. In large fiber neuropathy, it will be abnormal. Small fiber neuropathy can be diagnosed with a skin biopsy and with a test called a QSART.
Avatar f tn Examples include patients with positive family history, very insidious symmetric course of the disease, or some atypical features, including lack of treatment effect. Hereditary neuropathy with predisposition to pressure palsies can be suspected and tested for in some patients. • Imaging studies can provide supportive evidence of CIDP. • MRI of the spine with gadolinium enhancement may show enhancement of nerve roots.
Avatar f tn Tingling and paresthesia on the multiple locations could be physical nerve injury like nerve entrapment, disease affecting the nerves, like neuropathy, diabetic neuropathy, multiple sclerosis, diabetes etc. Since these symptoms are present in multiple locations, this needs multiple sclerosis workups. Other conditions are diabetes, peripheral artery disease, peripheral neuropathy or head injury. Consult a neurologist for investigation of these symptoms.
Avatar n tn Numbness of the big toe can be due to pinched nerve, poor circulation, faulty foot wear, diabetic neuropathy, leprosy, nerve injury, multiple sclerosis and frost bite. This needs to be investigated before a final cause can be pin pointed. Please consult your PCP for primary examination followed by proper referral. Hope this helps. Take care!
Avatar f tn Well, you have come to the Multiple Sclerosis forum which is not so much involved with peripheral neuropathy as it is central neuropathy. So I would recommend that you post this question over on the Neurology forum. There are medications approved in the use of peripheral neuropathy. Lyrica was just approved for this use in diabetic neuropathy, but it is used in other forms, too. There are other meds used, but I am not an expert in them. Good luck to you relieving your misery!

Avatar n tn Vitamin B12 deficiency is associated with peripheral neuropathy, which causes tingling, and numbness, overlapping symptoms of multiple sclerosis. Multiple sclerosis is a chronic demyelinating neurological disorder where the disease phase is characterized by active phase and remissions. It has multiple symptoms and signs and is a diagnosis of exclusion.
Avatar f tn Lipoma is found among people with Multiple sclerosis, especially people who are female, 50-59 old, also have Constipation, and take medication Avonex. We study 61 people who have Lipoma and Multiple sclerosis from FDA and social media. Find out below who they are, other conditions they have and drugs they take. You are not alone: join a support group for people who have Multiple sclerosis and Lipoma .. This is just one of many that have lipomas with MS . So there is definitely an association.
Avatar f tn ) A neuromuscular specialist is a different sub-specialty of neurology that deals with tests such as EMG and nerve conduction studies, and treats conditions which may range from hereditary neuropathies to diabetic neuropathies to multiple sclerosis to muscular dystrophy and many more. Patients may see a neuromuscular specialist to diagnose neuropathy, evaluate the underlying cause of known neuropathy, or for ongoing monitoring of the condition--which is why I mentioned the specialty above.
Avatar m tn A strong degree of suspicion needs to be kept for multiple sclerosis. Multiple sclerosis is a chronic demyelinating neurological disorder 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.
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 m tn MS means Multiple Sclerosis. You happened to post you question in a forum dedicated to the discussion of multiple sclerosis :-) I'm not a radiologist, but the laguae from thee report points to vasular issues rather than nerve issues. MS attacks nerves. This may be why the doc wants a CT scan.

Avatar f tn Neuropathy is neuropathy, and it makes no difference where it came from, altho if a medication or chemotherapy or an injury has caused this, once you remove the issue, the neuropathy will usually go away. The way to go with this is THERE ARE treatments for this, including the nerve pain medicine Lyrica, I take it and have peripheral neuropathy in my hands and feet, but despite feeling more comfortable, I still have numbness and some swelling.
Avatar n tn For years, I've had pain & fatigue, & symptoms of twitches from my torso down, pain in my right arm & hand, numb feet while running, uncontrollable toe-spreading, horrible nighttime nerve pain that makes it nearly impossible to sleep, & feelings of "flu-like" fatigue during the day, Four years ago went to our doc, who thought I might have MS & was sent to a neurologist. Had nerve conduction test, blood work-up, MRI of neck and brain, etc.
Avatar f tn Progressive weakness with legs being afflicted before arms and upper body can be due to Chronic Inflammatory Demyelinating Polyneuropathy (CIDP) or chronic relapsing polyneuropathy. The symptoms of CIDP are also seen in multiple sclerosis (MS) and autoimmune neuropathy. Hence, these two conditions should be ruled out. Other possibilities are diabetes, hypothyroidism, lupus, myasthenia gravis. Please discuss with your doctor. Take care!

Having these sensory symptoms in multiple locations, or the recurrence of similar symptoms in different locations is a hallmark symptom of multiple sclerosis, so your doctor will likely ask about the past history of similar symptoms to assess the likelihood of multiple sclerosis as a diagnosis (see symptoms of multiple sclerosis).

Avatar f tn I think the only relationship between MS and Psoriasis is their possible origins within the immune system. It's possible (for a very unfortunate person) to have both but I don't think it would be expected. Having a parent with MS probably places you at a small increased risk of developing the disease but there are many factors believed to be at play. There is no direct hereditary link that I'm aware of. I hope others here who have a much longer history can confirm that for you.
Avatar n tn Numbness at the side of the big toe can be due to pinched nerve, poor circulation, faulty foot wear, diabetic neuropathy, leprosy, nerve injury, multiple sclerosis and frost bite. This needs to be investigated before a final cause can be pin pointed. Take care!
5466288 tn?1410485185 Nerve infections as in lyme’s disease too should be investigated. Vitamin B12 deficiency too should be looked into. Multiple sclerosis is another possibility but less likely in your case. Take care! The medical advice given should not be considered a substitute for medical care provided by a doctor who can examine you. The advice may not be completely correct for you as the doctor cannot examine you and does not know your complete medical history.
Avatar m tn Lumbar disc prolapsed causing compressive neuropathy, sciatica, etc. certain chronic systemic diseases like multiple sclerosis, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis may present with tingling and numbness both legs. Vitamin deficiencies like B12, B6 can also present with peripheral neuropathies .consult your neurologist again with these possibilities. get an MRI spine done to look for any disc lesions and bony causes of compression neuropathy.

Avatar f tn This retrobulbar neuritis can be caused by various conditions like meningitis, syphilis, lyme disease, multiple sclerosis, tumors, exposure to drugs and allergic reactions. Consult your neurologist for a detailed evaluation and checking these systemic illnesses as these could be causing the associated peripheral neuropathy and numbness. Take care.
