Common Questions and Answers about Prevalence of multiple sclerosis in uk


Avatar f tn 4 in the second. The prevalence of multiple sclerosis in Gypsies was found to be 19.1/100,000 in the first region and 18.4 in the second. It is concluded that multiple sclerosis is less common in Gypsies than in whites living in the same areas." It appears that a combination of genetics and environment might be a factor ... Thanks for asking this question -it was fascinating to read and think about.
1221035 tn?1301000508 A 2003 overview of research indicates a seizure prevalence of 2.3 percent in adults with multiple sclerosis. In the general population (those who don't have MS), the seizure prevalence is approximately 0.4 percent to 0.8 percent. The cause of seizures in people with multiple sclerosis isn't completely understood. Seizures most likely result from lesions present in the cerebral cortex and adjacent white matter of people with multiple sclerosis.
4848471 tn?1372238752 It should be noted, however, that the increase in the proportion of surnames prefixed with Mc or Mac with latitude within Scotland is not associated with an increase in the prevalence of multiple sclerosis." Yes, this was one of the crude methods they used to determine ancestry. A Mac or a Mc. They even call it crude themselves a couple of times. And still, they're not seen as having a higher rate as they rises proportionately in the population.

382218 tn?1341181487 A patient with NMO should be seen at least periodically by a specialist in demyelinating disorders, these are neurologists trained in multiple sclerosis and other neuroimmunological diseases. Plasma exchange is effective in some patients but not others, as are newer therapies that are being tried but are still experimental such as rituximab, which is an infusion therapy.
Avatar f tn Late onset multiple sclerosis (LOMS), defined as the first presentation of clinical symptoms in patients over 50, is not a rare phenomenon as previously thought, since the prevalence ranges between 4% and 9.6% in different studies. The course of the disease is often primary progressive and pyramidal or cerebellar involvement is observed in 60%-70% of the patients at presentation.
Avatar m tn // You may fair well with side affects. They are bearable for most and you can always switch meds if you experience problems.
Avatar f tn m new to this forum and just had a couple of questions regarding possible MS diagnosis. In July of 09 I had a MRI of my brain which showed a left frontal lesion measuring 1.4 x 1.2 x 1.4 cm. I had another in August 09 which measured the lesion at 1.0 x o.6 x 1.2 cm. I also had a third one in August 09 which showed another decrease in size. (sorry don't have those results in hand). My neurologist impression is ( Solitary focus of demyelination left frontal brain unclear etiology).
1517572 tn?1290796418 MS patients can be a pretty healthy bunch - as ironic as that may sound. Colds and other germs have trouble takking hold in our bodies because of the overactive nature of our immune system. Good luck with the next steps and I hope we will see you around.
Avatar m tn The cause of meralgia paresthetica is compression of the nerve that supplies sensation to the skin surface of your thigh." If it's possible i'd get it seen by your family dr, the odds of this type of situation being the first presentation of a neurological condition like MS is very unlikely. Hope that helps.....
665881 tn?1248926997 ” Wraith, who is working on a vaccine for the treatment of multiple sclerosis, investigated the MS-like disease in the various galanin transgenic mice developed in the Wynick lab. Professor Wraith said: “The results were really remarkable: rarely do you see such a dramatic effect as this. Mice with high levels of galanin just didn’t develop any signs of disease. We have a lot more to do to figure out how this works but the results are extremely promising.
Avatar m tn her vision will improve in time- but she will likely have some permanent damage. I had a minor bout of Optic Neuritis in 2011, and still have some graying of my vision in the affected eye. Hopefully she is on intravenous Solumedrol. I'm sorry we can't give you better news.
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 f tn I have had alot of muscle pain, heaviness in legs, fatique and insomnia; all of these problems are getting worse in the past 5 years. I recently started with dizziness and ringing in my ears which led me to request a copy of this report. I have a MRI scheduled next week. My question is the juxtacortical lesion specific to MS? If so have I caused more damaged going without treatment in the past 10 years.

Avatar f tn Many of us are in limbo and have symptoms like yours. Many have been trying to get an accurate dx for years. It's awful! You are in good company here. I doubt if any of us can say what the chances are that you have MS. There are so many things that mimic the disease. If you think your doctor has stopped looking, find a good neurologist. Read the health pages here and elsewhere, and don't give up on finding out what is wrong, whether it is MS or something else!
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 f tn I cannot advise you how to get into a clinical trial in USA, but I am in an oral drug trial in England and I have kept a detailed journal of my journey and all the appointments if you look me up! This will give you some idea of the commitment and time involved..allthough of course every trial is different and will have a different protocol.
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.
