886824 tn?1253740254 Multiple sclerosis (MS) is a nervous system disorder that affects your brain and spinal cord. It is widely thought that MS is an autoimmune condition and results from an autoimmune attack on myelin, the material that surrounds and protects the nerve cells. This attack damages the myelin, which in turn slows down or blocks messages between your brain and the body causing the symptoms of MS. The causes of MS are largely unknown.
Avatar m tn ( So my advice is to do some research on both lyme disease and multiple sclerosis. I'm not sure where you are located but this is a good link with so much helpful information no matter where you are: And also the MS Society might be another good one to google as well if you haven't already! Good luck! Wikipedia is amazing for researching too and has some really good info on medical conditions if you haven't already found it useful. http://en.wikipedia.
214544 tn?1201150990 Tick borne infection can cause fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue, arthritis, thyroid problems, and symptoms identical to Multiple Sclerosis. There is a big problem with getting tested for Lyme Disease. The tests are not reliable, and will often miss known cases of Lyme. Because of this, physicians are supposed to evaluate the patient's symptoms and history, and diagnose based on this, rather than on blood tests. This is called a clinical diagnosis.
Avatar n tn sleep disorders these past few years. Recently I came across a reference to tuberous sclerosis. Some identifying charecteristics seem to fit my daughter. She has 2-4 hypopigmented spots (that we can see, she is very fair) and dental enamel defects in her primary teeth that have been present since they erupted. I guess my question is should I insist the neuro re-evaluate her, get a second opinion from a new neuro, or be content with the original diagnosis and hope she will outgrow this?
Avatar m tn Hi sir/madam, One of my relatives son age 3 years has got following observation - CT:Brain: Plan - "Multiple tiny periventricular calcific foci are noted on the walls of lateral ventricels on either side (right>left). - Elsewhere brain parenchyma shows normal attenuation. -The Ventricular system, basal cisterns and sulcal spaces are normal. -Cranial bones and soft tissues of the scalp are unremarkable. Now his health is geting down .
Avatar m tn He is the one who first noticed that Lyme patients with Bartonella had a high number of neuro symptoms. Toxoplasmosis can also cause neuro symptoms. It can be quite nasty. It is believed that a large percentage of the population carries it, but their immune system holds it in check. When the immune system gets compromised or suppressed, such as with chronic Lyme, then it can flare up into illness. You will definitely want to treat it.
Avatar m tn 1) My primary symptom is pain, and this is by far the main one affecting my life. I've had this pain for almost five years now, and it has been getting progressively worse. I've tried physical therapy, lidocaine shots, acupuncture, massage, exercise, TMJ mouthguard, TMJ exercises, rest, heat, ice, anti-inflammatory meds, the meds I'm on now, new pillows, a new bed, yoga, and chiropractic care.
Avatar f tn Nerve conduction studies should be done along with blood tests for above mentioned disorders. Vitamin B12 deficiency too should be looked into. Multiple sclerosis is another possibility but less likely in your case. Hypothyroidism, liver and kidney problem and diabetes can also cause loss of appetite. Often such disorders linger in the body without a person’s knowledge and rigger in times of stress. Please consult your PCP for primary examination followed by proper referral.Take care!
Avatar f tn It could be a nerve issues, problems such as liver/kidney disease, hyperthyroidism, lymphoma, multiple sclerosis, etc. But like I said I would start with changing the less restrictive possibility- the medication with those side effects and going from there. Who Knows you might get lucky and end the majority of the symptoms, except the ones that caused you to start taking the medicine to start with. I Hope This Helps. Good Luck.
Avatar n tn As in the first post I went over his sleeping test. I did just go over the symptoms of multiple sclerosis, and it's odd of how many similarities there are. He has had quite a few medical test done. So any that would assist you, just ask me. And I will take a lot. At this time I am trying to go threw his medical file to make some type of sense out of it. He seems to be getting worse lately. And he did mention to me that in the winter he felt worse. Which seemed odd.
Avatar n tn Thank you for visiting the Family Practice Forum. Several of things come to mind. Firstly, you may be having small strokes, also known as "Transient Ischemic Attacks" (or TIAs). There may be some changes which would show up on a CT of the brain, but not always. Nevertheless, based on your symptoms, you may talk to your doctor about going on a blood thinner such as "Plavix" to help prevent further strokes/ TIAs. Secondly, you mention "palpitations".
Avatar n 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.
867787 tn?1318939830 Symptoms ~~ Head-- severe eye pain, mostly left but recently (in last 3 months) started in Right eye Feels like I'm being stabbed with a hot ice pick, throbs,light hurts to the point I wear sunglasses in the house. Pain in left eye has been going on sice March 2009. I have constnt blurriness in L. eye even when wearing my glasses & have bouts of double vision in my R. eye. Horrible headaches ( not related to eye pain).
Avatar n tn Also developed pkd (Polycystic kidney disease) which also suggests that symptoms are chronic headaches. I know that a lot of als cases are misdiagnosed, but just wanted to find out if some of these symptoms are related to als or could there be any other possibilities.....any feedback would be highly appreciated.
Avatar m tn The symptoms, especially numbness and tingling can be due to a mini stroke or transient ischemic attack, compression of spinal nerves, Vit B12 deficiency, vitamin D deficiency, low testosterone, anemia, lupus and other autoimmune disorders, heavy metal poisoning, vaso-vagal attack, multiple sclerosis, hypothyroidism, diabetes and panic attack. It can also be a type of seizure. If the limbs are affected mainly in sleep it can be a sleep disorder like restless leg syndrome.
Avatar n tn [1] The exact cause of Henoch-Schönlein purpura is unknown, although it may occur after certain viral and bacterial infections, as well as an adverse drug reaction to some medications. Multiple sclerosis (abbreviated MS, also known as disseminated sclerosis or encephalomyelitis disseminata) is an autoimmune condition in which the immune system attacks the central nervous system (CNS), leading to demyelination.
Avatar n tn Myoclonus can occur by itself, but most often it is one of several symptoms associated with a wide variety of nervous system disorders. For example, myoclonic jerking may develop in patients with multiple sclerosis, Parkinson's disease, Alzheimer's disease, or Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease. Myoclonic jerks commonly occur in persons with epilepsy, a disorder in which the electrical activity in the brain becomes disordered leading to seizures.
Avatar f tn Others causes include traumatic head injury or spinal cord injury or infection, metabolic problems such as liver failure or kidney failure (these would be accompanied by other signs and symptoms related to the liver and kidney), a history of cardiac arrest leading to prolonged oxygen deprivation (this is something you would be aware of, so if you do not have a history of a cardiac arrest then this is an unlikely cause of your symptoms), thyroid problems (this can be tested for and is highly t
1350085 tn?1279169053 I was wondering if some symptoms I have been having are possible multiple sclerosis. I am 32 yrs old, female. 2002--hyperhydrosis (underarms,sweating for no reason. But alum. chloride stops it thank god) CNS disorder? 2005--Winter, ER with massive panic attack during college, dropped a class after to focus on health. May or may not be MS related... 2007--Spring, chronic arm pain, right arm, feels like it is in the bone and can be severe enough that I cry. Still comes and goes, often.
Avatar f tn NO CONSTIPATION, was the second best part. I began to research Iron Deficiency and Multiple Sclerosis and was surprised at what I found. I would not try this until you know your Iron Levels so have your Dr do A IRON and IRON BINDING CAPACITY blood test and you will get a better picture. Good Luck!
Avatar f tn These multiple neurological symptoms could be due to a chronic demyelinating condition called multiple sclerosis where the disease phase is characterized by active phase and remissions. 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 You sound like you are getting a timely work-up and your doctor is not hestitant to do tests, which is good, so hopefully time will tell, though I hope for your sake it is something more benign than multiple sclerosis. Best wishes to you.
