Q: 

multiple sclerosis - I was diagnose with MS on July 2011, whent for a second opinion and was told?

A: 31 Aug 2011 Why do they think you have MS? Did you show any signs of demyelination (destruction of myelin) in your brain scans or MRI''s? What were the results from your lumbar punch? There isn''t a definative, 100% test for MS, but there are tests that can indicate a possibility. If you haven''t had any serious testing, ask for it before you accept that diagnoses.

Q: 

What are the signs and symptoms of multiple sclerosis?

Q: 

multiple sclerosis

A: Afraid I cant tell you the symptoms as the 4 people I know/knew best with it were all different. My cousin was the strangest as she seemed to be having a nervous breakdown, went into a waking coma and is now brain damaged & living in sheltered accommodation. I know it affected her mum''s eyes and balance first. The UK MS Society might have some useful info on it? Sorry not to be more help. Try not to worry too much - there are so many other possibilities, that they would want to rule out first if your doctor thought your symptoms might possibly be MS. When I get really severe migraines, I can''t move my eyes with out bursting into tears, also feel extremely fatigued and weak, so, you could be having a migraine or it could be something...

A: www.theheartdiseases.com gives you all the details u want..... You should always keep in mind that whatever actions you do today can either help to prevent, delay or minimize the effect of heart disease or worsen it. The key is to control risk factors. Granted that you cannot control every risk factor for heart disease such as family history but you can definitely do something about your behavior. Age and gender also influence your risk of heart disease. Major Risk Factors of Heart Disease www.theheartdiseases.com Do you take a statin for high cholesterol? Try here. It will explain somewhat. I have been through a similar experience and I have to say thank God for our modern medicine. I am writing a blog on what happened to me but I have gotten to the MRI part myself. I''ll place a link...


Q: 

Which Disease Modifying Drug did you choose for your multiple sclerosis and why? Did you choose any at all?

A: I took Copaxone for a few years after I was diagnosed. I called the drug companies and obtained an efficacy report on the first four (known as CRAB DRUGS) you listed. They help 50% of the people who take them. So to start you have a 50/50 chance of getting any benefit from them. Of course your doctor is not going to tell you that. TYSABRI is only prescribed if none of the CRAB drugs work since a number of people have died while on that drug. So in actuality you don''t have the option of choosing it. Frankly, most of my friends will not take any of the above. They will check into a hospital if they have an exacerbation and take steroids interveneously. The rest take LDN and so do I. IF you are not familiar with LDN (Low Dose Naltrexone) just type it into your web browser and educate...

A: Hello and Sorry for the delay in replying. Hope you have recovered from your symptoms by now. Endometriosiscan cause deposits in the ovary and lead to the development of cyst filled with chocolate colored material,termed as the ''chocolate cyst''. This could be the reason they have done ovarian cystectomy. Theother causes for the cyst are polycystic ovarian syndrome, cyst adenoma, or a dermoid cyst.

Q: 

multiple sclerosis by clinical diagnosis

A: Hi, Thanks for the query. I will answer it according to the question numbers. 1)multiple sclerosis is a neurological disorder usually seen in individuals between 20-50 years of age. It most commonly presents itself with visual disturbances, along with limb weakness, muscle spasms and tremors (which you are experiencing), but the diagnosis is purely clinical and needs a detailed history. 2)As I mentioned earlier, it is a mainly clinical diagnosis that can be supported by investigations like an MRI, an EEG, and with a CSF analysis. 3)Your problems seem neurologically related, hence a detailed neurological examination may be helpful for you. Any qualified neurologist will be able to help you. Wish you good health....


Q: 

multiple sclerosis

A: If you had multiple sclerosis demyelinisating plaques on the brainís MRI-scan should be seen. Headache, sleeping disorders, and pains are not so typical for MS but you can check for it anyway. It is possible that you may have a tension headache due to muscle stiffness on the neck and back which is caused by the spinal osteoarthritis....
