Avatar f tn 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.
Avatar n tn 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. THere are 2 Flair hyperintense lesions along the undersurface of the copus callosum. Focus of T2 hyperintensity is seen in the deep white matter of the right frontal lobe.
Avatar n tn Husband completed Hep C treatment (same drugs as you) and has been developing symptoms of MS as the years since treatment have gone by. I would like to know if Hep C can trigger MS or if the treatment can trigger MS.

Avatar m tn That is the most important part of a diagnosis of MS. Are your symptoms on one side of the body, asymetrically or on both sides of the body evenly? How long have you been going to the neurologist? Are you scheduled for a follow up? Was your MRI looking specifically MS or was it a general one? Was it with contrast? If a MRI does not show MS they will not diagnose MS and put you on the drugs to slow MS.
1059772 tn?1286655190 I am in the process of being evaluated for multiple sclerosis due to many white spots on my MRI and eye troubles. I have a few things I have noticed for many years but didn't think much about until now: I frequently shudder with a feeling of a chill for a few seconds at a time. Occasionally, I space out for a moment and then come back sometimes in the middle of conversation. I sometimes experience a very sharp stabbing pain in my abdomen that lasts for about 30 seconds.
Avatar f tn As for your face, I would first talk to my doctor about the length of time you have been on the steroids and see if there is a different course of treatment available and your face will start clearing up on its own.
1210403 tn?1277953086 My one piece of advise would be to keep a journal of your symptoms and pain. This will help your doctor out more than anything. It also keeps you from forgetting something very important that your doctor may need to know.
Avatar f tn I am 52 years old and I have all the symptoms of MS that have gradually gotten worse over the years but I have a normal MRI so my doctor said I do not have MS. What are the chances that I still could have MS. It would explain why I feel the way I do. My worst symptom is balance, gait, weakness and fatigue.
Avatar m tn If the patient clinically exhibits symptoms of another white matter disease process such as multiple sclerosis, the patient could return for contrast enhanced images to evaluate for acute or active disease" Basically what I'm looking for is the bottom line, what's wrong? What kind of treatments are involved? Or simply what does all of that mean? Any help would be greatly appreciated thank you so much.
Avatar n tn Good morning. My name is Viviane, I'm a 26 years old female. I've been seriously depressed and feeling anxious for the last couple of years. All through this time I've been feeling symptoms like tension in my muscles all the time, tachycardia, short breath, among others (common for this kind of condition). Lately however I got a new one which is really puzzling me, I have a mild tingling sensation in my legs and a few times also in the upper limbs.

The neurologist should do lots of blood tests to help them figure out what it is and run other tests to determine the cause of your neurological symptoms. Because you have had so many viruses, my guess is that you have an autoimmune disease.
1435024 tn?1283573524 Many of the neurological diseases have similiar symthoms. They have an enviromental cause. When we get toxins in our body they effect the nervous system. Things like mercury, lead, arsenic, artifical sweetners, and pesticides can effect our nervous system. I had a problem with the amalgam(mercury) fillings in my mouth. I showed signs of MS but I didn't have the genic factor to give me MS.
Avatar f tn As for your future with MS, if that is what you really will hear from the neurologist, you can borrow all sorts of trouble and probably most of it will not come true. The future of MS patients is very different than what it was 20 years ago. With treatment, the number of people remaining ambulatory (walking) through their lifetime is now up to about 80-85%.
Avatar f tn You mentioned there are things I can do to improve my condition. Could you give me the details? I have been out of the hospital since 4/27/12 & continue to have off and on periods of the same symptoms that I went in with including loss of appetite & weight loss of 7lbs. I was 422 lbs on 4/28/12 & this morning I am 415lbs. This is not a bad thing for me since I am obese. I am concerned about nutrition.
