Multiple sclerosis mayo clinic

Common Questions and Answers about Multiple sclerosis mayo clinic


Avatar m tn Truthfully, I've heard one of the best MS Clinics in the US is the Mellen Center at Cleveland Clinic. You might try checking out They list all the clinics available, etc. My neuro said the clinic at Cincinatti isn't that great but thinks Cleveland Clinic is really good. I've never heard of the Mayo Clinic being highly rated for MS, but more for heart desease.
572651 tn?1530999357 I have submitted an entry to MAYO clinic for their social media workshop – it should be illuminating to see the medical side of this communication tool. MAYO Clinic is offering scholarships for three patient/caregivers to participate alongside medical personnel in their upcoming Social Media Conference. It appears I am the only Multiple Sclerosis patient advocate who has applied and I would appreciate your taking a few minutes to support my efforts.

Avatar m tn I have been to every hospital and did almost every knee jerk reaction test by most of the neurologists in my area, took a Lyme test and been too mayo clinic. Too me it as if my body is attacking its self. Mayo said the walking problem was due to stress and would pass even though I still that problem a year later. All my tests come back normal in regards to neurology.

572651 tn?1530999357 To keep these references together, here is the Mayo Clinic explanation, which is different than pretty much any other lab - "A finding of 4 or more cerebrospinal fluid (CSF)-specific bands (ie, bands that are present in CSF but are absent in serum) is consistent with multiple sclerosis." They list the reference value for this test as fewer than 4.
Avatar m tn Hi All, I have several neurological symptoms including about 30 lesions on a brain MRI scan. I've gotten several diagnoses from different doctors including multiple sclerosis - but nothing definitive from the dozens of tests run. Can someone tell me who is considered the top doctor for DIAGNOSING multiple sclerosis in the U.S. ? I'm willing to travel to any state. Thanks for any help you can give.
Avatar f tn I have been seeing my pcp regularly, have been seen at Mayo Clinic in Minnesota by internal med, GI,rheumatology, seen a local rheumatologist, seen a oncologist/hematologist and have gotten NO answers/diagnosis. I continue to work with little to no absence cause I can work from home. I struggle through most days hiding the pain. I have stopped all pain medication because I was on morphine and do not want to become an opiate addict. I did not receive much benefit from it anyway.
1225331 tn?1333365769 Hi everyone, Well, I received an early morning call from the Mayo Clinic this morning. Just about a day ago, I just faxed them all my recent medical records, labs, & scans that I had from my oncologist and GI doctor. They initially told me over the phone that it would take them 6 wks to review my info and then they would call if they agreed that I could have an appt or mail me a letter declining. They called me in only one day and want to see me as soon as possible.
627388 tn?1222198212 Has anyone from the MS forum ever seek treatment for their MS at the Mayo Clinic? If so, how was your as your experience with physicians from the clinic? I am considering driving up to Mayo at some point if my neurologist in town can't definatively diagnosis me.
Avatar f tn I have just made an appointment for a full work up at the Mayo Clinic, does anyone know the tests involved and how much they charge? Thank you!
582396 tn?1259863489 I am over the moon excited that DH got a 5-10 day appointment at Mayo Clinic - Dec. 10. Anyone have any experiences on what to expect etc?
Avatar m tn Some here on the board are not real pleased with the Mayo clinic. It seems they have their own set of standards to give out a dx of MS. I personally know nothing about them and wish you the best....hoping for that answer.
1264955 tn?1381782221 Has anybody here been to the neurology clinic at the Mayo or in their inpatient pain treatment program?
Avatar f tn I went to the Mayo Clinic in Az in Feb to rule out a dx of multiple sclerosis. Since it was in my network it did not cost me anything except the trip which ended up being about 1700.00 $. I live in California so it was only a couple states away but by the time you fly, (gas is so expensive now) and rent a car and stay in a hotel it adds up fast. The testing bill was over 30,000$.It takes about a week to do all that you need to do when you are there and they suggest that time frame.
Avatar f tn You might want to do a search for Mayo Clinic MS Symptoms and see how your symptoms line up. Again, it sounds like a very possible match to me but there may be other things that cause the same symptoms. Do you have a follow-up appointment to go over these results with a neurologist? I would ask him/her specifically about the possibility of MS if you are given a diagnosis other than that.
Avatar n tn After many tests, doctors, even mayo clinic twice, I have found out a MRI of my head was never done. Only MRI of back twice. I saw 2 different neurologists,was always referred to a pain clinic, given various pain meds. Finally a nerve stimulator was implanted in my spine 10 months ago. Something made me look up ms info, and it fits my symptoms, but Nero!ogist can't do MRI of brain with stim. Implant in me. Are other tests for ms reliable, or w!l that be more waste of time and $ ?
382218 tn?1341181487 6% had relapsing remitting multiple sclerosis, 9.4% primary progressive multiple sclerosis and 6% clinically isolated syndrome. Nearly 40% of our multiple sclerosis patients with disease duration >10 years (mean = 16.2 ± 5.3 years) remained with no or mild disability (Expanded Disability Status Scale [EDSS] 3). Also, about 30% of patients with relapsing remitting multiple sclerosis showed benign disease evolution (EDSS 3) more than 20 years (mean = 24.0 ± 3.3) after onset.
