382218 tn?1341181487 Long-term follow-up of benign multiple sclerosis in Hordaland County, Western Norway Abstract Objective To study the frequency of benign multiple sclerosis (MS) after 20 years disease duration and identify early clinical and demographic prognostic factors of a benign course. Methods A population-based cohort including all 230 MS patients with clinical disease onset during 1976–1986 in Hordaland County, Western Norway was followed up with clinical examination in 1995 and 2003.
Avatar f tn I live in a very rural town in NW PA. and wonder what the rate of hiv is in rural america. Is this somewhere that you would consider a high risk area for heterosexual transmission of hiv? Is there a web site that talks about hiv in rural america or that gives the numbers?

The pictures tonight continue to worry me for all of you downunder. The equivalent of a tidal wave is what they showed hitting and they were talking about the water moving on to Brisbane.
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?
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 n tn Now I am getting some different symptoms like body twitching at different places, repeated painful geographic shapes in tongue. Just I need some clarification whether this repeated painful geographic shapes and body twitching are sign for sero conversion?... It's been almost 10 months now after exposure.. What is your thoughts? Can I believe the negative results for Heb B and C? Since those results have some influence over HIV window...
1517572 tn?1290796418 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. I have been feeling ill since Feb 09 and as my condition continues I think I can recall feeling some of these symptoms as far back as 15 years old. I have has pnemonia 2 times and had HPV when I was a teen. I am 30 years old now and have 2 wonderful children and an amazing husband. My question is where do I go from here? What kind of doctors should I be seeing?
Avatar f tn The MRI showed lesions in the brain and in the spine. I was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis. I stayed on the hospital for 5 days taking steroid 5g. then I took 40mg for one week, then 20mg for the next week. After taking the steroid I feel of little bit of stiffness on my mid back, it comes and goes (the stiffness in my back wasn't there before taking the steroid). My question: is this is really MS? Is there any chance I can bee missdiagnosed?
Avatar m tn Meanwhile I was prescribed another amoxicillin clavulanate course, multiple fluconazole courses for my tongue and multiple courses valaciclovir, umifenovir and codeine for the chronic coughing. Nothing seems to help to get rid of the chronic coughing and geographic tongue for good. Fluconazole and umifenovir do work while I take it, but after the course I start coughing again and the geographic tongue comes back.

Avatar f tn Hi, I'm new to this forum and just had a couple of questions regarding possible MS diagnosis. In July of 09 I had a MRI of my brain which showed a left frontal lesion measuring 1.4 x 1.2 x 1.4 cm. I had another in August 09 which measured the lesion at 1.0 x o.6 x 1.2 cm. I also had a third one in August 09 which showed another decrease in size. (sorry don't have those results in hand).
Avatar m tn my sister (24) was diagnosed Multiple Sclerosis in 2010, responded to steroid. now she suffered sudden & complete loss of vision in her left eye. she has been put on SOLUMEDROL. please suggest any available treatment modalities world over ? chances of return of vision ??
Avatar f tn SAID I HAD MS A LONG TIME. THEY LOOKED BACK AT ALL MY MEDICAL RECORDS. I WAS PARALIZED IN 1999 IN LEFT LEG, TOOK 18 MONTHS TO BE ABLE TO WALK A LITTLE. ABOUT A YEAR LATER I GOT PARALIZED IN RIGHT LEG IT TOOK A SHORTER TIME FOR ME TO BE ABLE TO WALK AGAIN. I HAD BELL PALSY IN 2000. IN MY FACE. THEY PUT ME ON CAPAXONE INJECTIONS. THE NEW DOCTOR TOOK ME OFF OF MEDICINE. I HAVE BEE SO NERVOUS ABOUT ALL THIS. I'M NOW AN OLDER PERSON. WHAT COULD I HAVE IF NOT MS? I FELT CAPAXONE HELPED ME.
Avatar f tn I cannot advise you how to get into a clinical trial in USA, but I am in an oral drug trial in England and I have kept a detailed journal of my journey and all the appointments if you look me up! This will give you some idea of the commitment and time involved..allthough of course every trial is different and will have a different protocol.
Avatar f tn I have had alot of muscle pain, heaviness in legs, fatique and insomnia; all of these problems are getting worse in the past 5 years. I recently started with dizziness and ringing in my ears which led me to request a copy of this report. I have a MRI scheduled next week. My question is the juxtacortical lesion specific to MS? If so have I caused more damaged going without treatment in the past 10 years.
Avatar n tn d also like to know if a head CAT scan could also detect lesions in the white matter typical to multiple sclerosis, even if that CAT scan was initially made to rule out possible brain trauma due to a head blow. So basically, is it possible for a neurologist to suspect from multiple sclerosis by looking at a regular CAT scan, or only through MRI? Sorry to bother, I'd really appreciate a reply since the ghost of multiple sclerosis is driving me insane.
Avatar n tn He had an MRI of the brain that showed multiple foci of T2 and FLAIR hyperintensity in the white matter of both cerebral hemispheres including approximately 5 small lesions in the periventricular white matter, lovated at the callosal sptal margin and oriented perpendicular long axis of the lateral ventricles. THere are 2 Flair hyperintense lesions along the undersurface of the copus callosum. Focus of T2 hyperintensity is seen in the deep white matter of the right frontal lobe.
Avatar n tn So they really are used more to rule out other causes, rather than to rule in MS. I have full blown MS (if there is such a thing) and was positive in all the tests, but again the diagnosing criteria is the MRI and clinical presentation of symptoms.
