Avatar m tn In regards to MS.....what you've mentioned experiencing would generally 'not' be consistent, you didn't have any neurologically abnormal test evidence and all the issues you've mentioned are also associated with many non neurological conditions.......rather than another MRI, I would think you would be much better off seeing a general doctor instead.
1435024 tn?1283573524 I have vertigo and have had it for years and did not realize what it was. My symptoms are worse with everything when my menses comes or a few days before it does. I am very afraid and it makes me really depressed because of my children. I feel the ms like symptoms but i dont know if it a panic attack thing or what. I also get migraines but they are not usually painful. I would just get the aura and the one side of the body affected.
Avatar m tn I am a 16 year old male and am in good shape. About 2 months ago I got very severe vertigo that eventually went away. More recently I've been getting these vertigo episodes again. I also lift weights, and go into a sauna after a workout. In the sauna I notice that my arms go numb, and don't hurt to a pinch nearly as much as normal. Also, when I take a hot bath I feel a pins and needles feeling in my feet. Does anybody know if this is anything to worry about?

Avatar n tn This is diagnosed by MRI of the brain. Multiple sclerosis can cause vertigo, but often, other symptoms are present as well. A normal MRI of the brain excludes multiple sclerosis. Thyroid problems and basilar migraines can also lead to vertigo. Lastly, in rare instances of acute onset of vertigo, stroke must be in the differential. If you mean lightheadedness, you should have your blood pressure and blood counts (e.g., hemoglobin) checked.
Avatar f tn How can I stop this constant dizziness due to multiple sclerosis? I have been suffering from this disease for over 6 years now.I tried Meclizine, Steroids,....and nothing has worked for me.
Avatar n tn This is diagnosed by MRI of the brain. Multiple sclerosis can cause vertigo, but often, other symptoms are present as well. A normal MRI of the brain excludes multiple sclerosis. Thyroid problems and migraine variants can also lead to vertigo. If by dizziness you mean light-headedness, causes could include low blood pressure such as due to dehydration or autonomic dysfunction, cardiac problems, and several other non-neurologic causes. Anemia can cause light-headedness as well.
Avatar f tn I recently posted a question re the possibility of having multiple sclerosis but someome has suggested that my symptoms could also be a result of vit d deficiency. Symptoms: numbness and tinling hands mostly every now and then toes, abnormal gait , vertigo and ear ringing. Any thoughts??
Avatar m tn The most common is a benign tumor called a schwanoma (also called acoustic neuroma). This is diagnosed by MRI of the brain. Multiple sclerosis can cause vertigo, but often, other symptoms are present as well. A normal MRI of the brain excludes multiple sclerosis. Thyroid problems can also lead to vertigo. A migraine variant called a basilar migraine can present with vertigo associated with nausea, light-sensitivity, and sometimes other symptoms. Headache may or may not be present.

Multiple sclerosis can cause vertigo, but often, other symptoms are present as well. A normal MRI of the brain excludes multiple sclerosis. Thyroid problems can also lead to vertigo. Your symptoms may be a variant of migraine. Basically this is marked by several hours of vertigo associated with nausea, light-sensitivity, and sometimes other symptoms.

Multiple sclerosis can cause vertigo, but often, other symptoms are present as well. A normal MRI of the brain excludes multiple sclerosis. It is good that you have had an MRI of the brain to rule out structural/neurological causes for vertigo. Thyroid problems can also lead to vertigo. If by dizziness, you mean headache, you may have a migraine variant (i.e.

However, with the headache symptoms you describe, you may have a variant of migraine called basilar migraine.
1578997 tn?1367186252 Hi there. These are plausible signs of multiple sclerosis and this needs a detailed examination by a neurologist and other causes of similar overlapping symptoms. The hyper intense lesions in the white matter are areas of demyelination which are peculiar to multiple sclerosis, cerebrospinal fluid also needs to be tested for cells, proteins and oligoclonal bands and electro physiological studies. These along with clinical signs and MRI quite likely point towards multiple sclerosis. Take care.

Avatar m tn I am not sure if this what you mean in your description, but I assuming it is. As you mentioned multiple sclerosis can also cause vertigo, but often, other symptoms are present as well. A normal MRI of the brain (i.e., not consistent with MS) excludes multiple sclerosis. The pain you are describing may not be related to the vertiginous symptoms you have experienced. Do you have a history of migraines or other type of headache?

Avatar f tn This is diagnosed by MRI of the brain, and since your MRI only showed a few nonspecific foci, this means there is no tumor. Multiple sclerosis can cause vertigo, but often, other symptoms are present as well. A normal MRI of the brain excludes multiple sclerosis; the description you provide of your MRI does not suggest MS. Thyroid problems can also lead to vertigo. Your symptoms really are not consistent with Alzheimer's disease, parkinson's disease, or ALS, so you can rest these fears.

Do you have a headache with your dizziness? Migraine variants can cause features of dizziness/whooziness.
