multiple sclerosis symptoms

A: Most of your symptoms are not due to any neurological disorder but to your mental disorder(s) and to the other non-neurological disorders. You have neurological symptoms that can be met in multiple sclerosis but you lack one very important characteristic of MS-symptoms and that is the episodic occurrence and disappearance of the symptoms. Even if symptoms were typical for MS you would need further diagnostic procedures to confirm or exclude MS and these are: MRI-scan of the brain, evoked potentials, and liquor examination....


multiple sclerosis symptoms?

A: Hi there, I''m very sorry to hear about all your problems. Have any of your doctors ever been suspicious that you might have Turner''s Syndrome? I may be totally wrong but some of the symptoms you describe - being very short, diabetes, hearing loss- are all problems that can come about with TS. (Well, being short isn''t that much of a problem.) : ) You might want to do an internet search on it. Take good care. HI theone, mtstreet mentions an interesting thought. It is possible that Turner syndrome may have a component in this. The American Academy of Pediatrics now recommends that all girls who are shorter the the ''norms'' be tested for Turner syndrome. Generally Turner''s does not have major impacts on health, but can have some important effects that need to...


How Can I Deal With multiple sclerosis Pain?

A: Medication, physical therapy, behavior modification and even surgery can all be used to deal with multiple sclerosis pain. The best approach for you depends on the severity of the pain, the type of pain you are feeling and what might be causing it.

An autoimmune disease, multiple sclerosis damages the central nervous system. It can affect any of the nerves in the brain or spinal cord. As a result, people who have multiple sclerosis can have a range...

Could it be multiple sclerosis

A: Since you are also pregnant you should set up an appointment with a doctor as soon as possible. Nobody but nobody on an internet message board can diagnose you. im not pregnant any more i had a marisscarage at 11 weeks Still see a doctor about the other symptoms. I would definitely see a doctor. My mom had MS so I know what you''re going through. When I was in school I did several research papers on it to learn more about it. While it is hereditary the chance of me getting it, at least when I was studying about it years ago, is only 3%. I realize other studies may have been done and I haven''t really kept up but maybe that will make you feel better. I would still see a doctor to be on the safe side. Here''s a website I found though if you want to check it out

What Are the Best Tips About Nutrition for multiple sclerosis?

What Are the Different Kinds of multiple sclerosis Treatments?

A: multiple sclerosis is a condition in which the body gradually destroys the outer coating, known as the myelin sheath, which protects the nerve cells throughout the body. As the nerve cells of the brain and spinal cord lose protection, they may begin to malfunction and cause tremors, difficulty moving limbs, and vision loss. The condition is thought to be caused by a defect in the body’s immune system which causes the body to attack itself. Although there is no cure, there are multiple sclerosis treatments which may reduce symptoms and improve the quality of life for a person suffering with the condition.
