Avatar m tn It is really a shock to get this diagnosis and then you worry when the symptoms are not getting better with treatment. But, please be patient with the treatment as it will eventually work and her symptoms will calm down. Is she still in the hospital? The disease is not curable but it can be slowed down as Deb has already explained.
Avatar f tn He there, I am new to this site. I was wondering how you made out with a diagnosis. I had my mri and results showed I had lesions in the juxtacortical position and was told I didn't have MS. Even though I am experiencing the symptoms and the fact that My mom has MS. How are things with you?
Avatar n tn His sympotms are right sided numbess of the leg/foot, flank, arm, hand, his neck is sore and this is a new symptoms this week and he says it may be a pinched nerve. He also has left facial tingling and numbness/loss of taste of his tounge, and he gets a burning up the back of his head. he does not have any constant pain. so my question again is, because his lesions are old (as he states) does that mean that he does not have M.S.?
Avatar n tn I recently completed 24 weeks of interferon and ribavirin (mid-May), and now, the muscle and body pain have returned and seem to be intensifying.

Avatar f tn A resident Neurologist told me, that, as there were no positive Neuro results, and normal Neuro exam, that this was quite possibly caused by head trauma. My personal physician said Multiple Sclerosis is not possible, and feels it is Psychosomatic. I do have a history of mental illness. I was diagnosed with PTSD in 1992. I was severely ill, but, with treatment and hard work, I fought myself back. I have been stable and happy for several years.

Avatar f tn Lyme is curable, but people are still suffering and dying because of poor diagnosis and delayed treatment all over the world. Children are being born with it and lives are being ruined unnecessarily - it breaks my heart when I see a young face that is living with a life of Lyme Disease that the mother or father didn't even know they could possibly pass on. Please do a good thing today - read and share this status.

Avatar f tn 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? I am on Copaxone, but I was off of the shots for 6 mos prior to this last MRI for insurance reasons.
