Common Questions and Answers about Multiple sclerosis hereditary spastic paraplegia


1164218 tn?1262914192 I feel so bad for all of you. Although you don't have a definite diagnosis of Hereditary Spastic Paraplegia, it does sound like what your son has. Physical therapy is extremely important in keeping him mobile, and flexible. Stress, anger, frustration seems to make it worse, so this needs to be addressed with someone knowlegable in teaching him coping skills. There is a national foundation for this, so if you do get a definite diagnosis they can help a lot.
Avatar f tn I have a family member who has been diagnosed with Hereditary Spastic Paraplegia (HSP). He has been through years of testing to rule out many other neurological conditions (PLS, ALS, MS). He has been having chronic pain in his groin area for over 3 years now. The pain comes every other day like clockwork. He has seen 3 different urologists and none have been able to offer any assistants. The pain is now so sever he can not eat, sleep, or function.
Avatar f tn I should also mention that he has been suffering from a neurological disorder that has been tentatively diagnosed as hereditary spastic paraplegia. He has a great difficulty walking and maintaining balance due to the spasticity in his legs. Could the HSP be putting pressure on his Pudendal nerve? Or perhaps pelvic floor constriction? Could any of these conditions be related? I would love for him to be able to speak with someone or be seen in relations to Pudendal Neuralgia.
20866773 tn?1551913127 See your primary care physician, or go to urgent care, describe your issue (webmd[DOT]com/multiple-sclerosis/multiple-sclerosis-symptoms -is a decent resource for potential symptoms) and ask about getting an MRI. As far as I know, that's the only way to diagnose (or rule out) MS. I hope that this helps, and I very much hope that you don't have MS, I wouldn't wish it on my worst enemy... If you do, stay strong and try your best to stay positive.
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 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 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 Given that the only cause for spastic diplegia other than CP is hereditary spastic diplegia, I would desperately like to accept my fifteen-year-old son's doctor's diagnosis of CP as a cause for the problems that have developed in his feet and ankles over the past couple of years. I can't seem to find anyone who's been told anything remotely similar to what his Neurologist is telling us, however - i.e.
Avatar f tn Tingling and numbness in left hand and arm along with headache on one side and deep pain behind the eye could be an early manifestation of multiple sclerosis. 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 f tn However, if he has spastic paraplegia or quadriplegia, then I am sorry, but he may not be able to walk. If there is some weakness in limbs then he may be able to walk with support. Please consult his doctor regarding this. 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 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 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.
Avatar f tn my neurologist is looking at hereditory spastic paraplegia or inherited ataxias as a possible diagnosis...but nothing seems to fit 100%...i must add that i really respect his opinion, he is an excellent neurologist. It seems that i have both upper and lower motor neuron signs which is troubling these conditions rarely cause upper and lowere motor neuron signs. has anyone here got experience of anything similar?
Avatar f tn Looks like you've got some possible lesions on the cervical and thoracic spine. (That's what this means: Cervical - diffuse enlargement of the cervical cord w/possible focal areas of enhancement @ c4-c5. Thoracic-diffuse enlargement w/multiple foci of abn T2 signal.) Your LP was negative, but I find it interesting that they mentioned some bands in the CSF were more prominent - like you've got more of the same antibody in your CSF than in your blood.
Avatar n tn demyelinating disease (as occurs with multiple sclerosis or other disorders; this would be seen on a good quality MRI), certain genetic disorders (such as hereditary spastic paraparesis), specific infections (such as HTLV), specific nutrional deficiencies (vitamin B12, copper, vitamin E; these are often associated with other findings on history and examination), vascular malformations (such as a dural AV fistula), autoimmune disorders (such as one called "stiff person syndrome" and an
