Avatar f tn The statistics for men and prostate problems ( not all cancer) increases with age. My brother in law a Doctors says a man has a 50% chance of prostate problems at age 50 years old, 75% at 75 and so on. If he is like my husband he would do anything to avoid the doctor, but it is important what ever it is to catch it sooner than later. Good luck to both of you and welcome to the forum.
Avatar m tn Most recent MRI without contrast reads multiple large atypical focal areas...the largest centered in the left parietal white matter. Lesion in right corona radiata. Multiple additional lesions including areas in the frontal and periventrical white matter bilareally. Does the second MRI mean the same thing as the first with more detail, or does it appear that there are more lesions? It says highly suggestive of demyelinating disease or MS.
Avatar f tn Late onset multiple sclerosis (LOMS), defined as the first presentation of clinical symptoms in patients over 50, is not a rare phenomenon as previously thought, since the prevalence ranges between 4% and 9.6% in different studies. The course of the disease is often primary progressive and pyramidal or cerebellar involvement is observed in 60%-70% of the patients at presentation.
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 Going to your family doc in my opinion, is a good idea. My family doc did all the preliminary work up. He did lots of lab test to rule out the other diseases and then he ordered the MRI which was positive. He is actually the one who told me I fit the criteria (as did the radiologist reading the MRI), for the dx of MS. I think because our family docs know us fairly well they are not afraid to say "the words".
Avatar f tn My husband was in Vietnam in 1967, he contracted dengue fever and malaria while over there. Sometime later he was diagnosed with MS. Is there any link between the virus, high fever, and or agent orange and MS?
Avatar m tn i had been diagonised with multiple sclerosis in the year 2001. now i am not able to walk. i am also not able to see clearly. my speech is also not clear. i think my type of ms is primary progressive since my condition has worsened gradually. pl suggest some medicines or other alternative therapy.

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 I have had RR multiple sclerosis since I was 10 ish diagnosed (finally) in 2008. Had routine MRi of head and neck last month, everything is stable for 2 years now. Thank you Tysabri! My question is the impression of my mri stated T1 and T2 disease burden is at least moderate ( written for head and cervical MRI). Also JCV negative this whole time can I stay on Tysabri indefintely as long as I am negative?

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).
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 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.
