Avatar m tn What kind of terminology wold be used on an MRI report that might indicate MS? These are the results of my MRI.
Avatar f tn I had no changes in my MRI for 3 years and then last summer 3 new lesions appeared on my MRI. The hospital had a new MRI machine since the last time and the doctor attributed these lesions to the new MRI. I have had increased symptoms of fatigue and in recent weeks a tingling along both of my legs, my feet hurt and I am having alot of back pain that sort of circles around. Should I start with my PCP to see if it is my back or go straight to my neurologist?
Avatar n tn do you have to have active lesions in the brain on MRI in order to have M.S. My husband was diagnosed with M.S. and is driving himself crazy denying it. 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.
1517572 tn?1290796418 You could have a heavier lesion load than what was seen on the MRI and possible have symptoms throughout your body. The MRI may be hiding a few things, depending the strength of the MRI and how thick of slices of the images. So, you do need to see a neurologist. I would also say that you need to have an MRI of your cervical spine, too. You need a full blood work up. My guess is that your neurologist will find some indicators of a different autoimmune disease.
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 m tn Ya I just got back my MRI the third one in 1 year and the results are the same, the MRI shows an area 9mm in length on the left side of my brain, it represents an area of demylenation, I have now been too 3 neurologists and none of them know what it is, I was hoping I could list some of my symptoms and someone here could help me out, here goes Right side of my body only numbness face, Vertigo, insomnia, anxiousness, stress, trembling, spasms in my face, ear and leg, my stomach also will jerk fro
1972417 tn?1328356324 So I haven't gotten any better although my vitamin D levels have improved. My walking gait is horrible and I am having tingling, muscle spasms really bad at nights especially. My doctor says he thinks the viruses have attacked my nervous system and has prescribed physical therapy. He's done a brain mri and it shows normal, but I've been suffering for a long time with multiple problems. Does anyone think this EBV stuff could be ms???
Avatar n tn 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.
1210403 tn?1277953086 I do have Ostero arthrtis, but it is not a issue to where I complain about it. I had a lumbar MRI to check on my pins and needles symptoms, etc. They found a bulge in a disc, but nothing to indicate major pain or sensory sensations in my limbs. I am now being sent to a neurologist. I am foggy in my brain and feel out of sorts. At times I can't so anything but lay down. I have a hard time walking up my stairs in my home. Could I have Multiple Sclerosis.
Avatar m tn Previous MRI wothout contrast showed several small lesions in the periventricl white matter. Done 5 years ago. 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?
Avatar f tn It has multiple symptoms and signs and is a diagnosis of exclusion. 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 n tn Hi there. Your MRI report suggest that there are markers of Multiple sclerosis in your brain though no signs of active demyelination are present. these finding need to be correlated clinically for signs and evidence of multiple sclerosis. These multiple neurological symptoms including seizing hands and tremors could be due to a chronic demyelinating condition called multiple sclerosis where the disease phase is characterized by active phase and remissions.
1493284 tn?1294875712 Thanks, guys. Definitely something on my MRI that shows up in T2, Flair, Diffusion, and even T1(dark cloudiness in that case). Bob-- wouldn't you think DAWM would be considered evidence of blood-brain barrier breakdown?
Avatar f tn I am 64, have worsening MS-like symptoms, went back to an MS doctor I previously had seen years ago and he ordered an MRI of the brain on a 3 Tesla magnet machine but without contrast (because at 64 contrast could pose a risk to my kidneys). I have a normal creatinine and BUN. He said if he sees any new lesions, when compared with the MRI from years ago, then at that time he will re-order the MRI with contrast.
