293157 tn?1285873439 Estimates suggest that 8,000-10,000 children (defined as up to 18 years old) in the United States have multiple sclerosis, and another 10,000-15,000 have experienced at least one symptom suggestive of MS. Facts: Studies suggest 2 to 5% of all people with MS have a history of symptom onset before age 18. Diagnosis in children is more challenging than in adults due to the frequency of other childhood disorders with similar symptoms and characteristics.
Avatar n tn While there are a few surgical procedures/ phalloplasty, that may help increase the size of the penis these are often not required and neither advised in the absence of a functional abnormality. Erectile dysfunction can develop in young adults due to a variety of causes.
572651 tn?1530999357 There was exciting news coming from New Orleans last week at the American Academy of Neurology conference. Here is a brief synopsis of the highlights, taken from an email I received today. Even the ones that aren't MS related make for some good reading. you can find links to all of these stories through their website at http://www.medpagetoday.

Avatar m tn Since, just this last month, my left eye lid has been shaking every now and then, i started looking for neurological diseases so I ended up reading about Multiple Sclerosis. I'm 22 years old, actually i'll be 22 in a few days. I'm a computer programmer/ software engineer and stuff. Anyway, i read that MS targeted young adults so could be.
1221035 tn?1301000508 A 2003 overview of research indicates a seizure prevalence of 2.3 percent in adults with multiple sclerosis. In the general population (those who don't have MS), the seizure prevalence is approximately 0.4 percent to 0.8 percent. The cause of seizures in people with multiple sclerosis isn't completely understood. Seizures most likely result from lesions present in the cerebral cortex and adjacent white matter of people with multiple sclerosis.
4313204 tn?1353971047 Here are some of the drugs that are used to treat MS. All of them have some problems and are not completely effective. You can learn more about these on the WebMD site. Interferon Drugs for Multiple Sclerosis (Avonex, Betaseron, Rebif)Interferon beta drugs help control the immune system, which helps control MS. Glatiramer Glatiramer helps prevent the body's immune system from attacking nerve fibers. Novantrone Novantrone slows disability and reduces the relapse rate.
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 m tn I had this also was told I sit too much at work n needed to stretch more it got worse over time until I would awake in the night in excruciating burning pain I would even have to check my skin to make sure I didn’t actually have any burns eventually it kept getting worse and to the point it just stopped completely and I probably should’ve listened to the stretching advice because now for the last 11 years I have no feeling in about 8“ x 4“ area on my thigh
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.
