We all have spasms with ms (much less now that I am on Lipitor) but your episode sounds different. I have heard of sleep paralysis where one awakes but the body doesn't. But there again, it isusually symmetrical

central vs peripheral

Postby jimmylegs » Thu Jul 13, 2006 6:24 am

hi i am under the impression that "peripheral nerves" have their own route to the brain outside the spinal cord and that "central" nerves conduct their messages via the spinal cord into the brain.

so if there are no mri findings in your case, i wondered if they meant both peripheral and central.

in my case they started with peripheral testing (non-mri) and went on to do the mri for central, which turned out to be the winner. so i never had a peripheral mri coz i guess there was no point?

good question...i have mris with and without contrast..on my head neck and upper and lower spine..so i have lost track on how many it is now..i think like 10 or more......so i wonder if they have done both of those kinds or not..i would guess the ones at the hospital were both just cause i had more time in the machine then normal...but will be getting those films here soon to take to my new neur dr...so i will ask him about that..thanks

peri mri

here's a thing..

MRI has a pivotal role in the diagnosis of CNS disorders but has only recently been applied to diseases of the peripheral nervous system. Martin Bendszus and Guido Stoll discuss how MRI is being used to assess peripheral nerve lesions in experimental and clinical contexts, including recent advances in the development of novel contrast media.

One other thing. My husband went over 15 years with severe episodes of MS like symptoms and NO MRI's showed it. Optic nerve was scanned when his vision was 20/400. the DR that did it was real "up" on MS and such, so I imagined he scanned it right, but it showed nothing. We were told that in a small percentage of MS'rs, it does not show up in test. Gary was DX'd as clinical MS, it responded to the treatments but did not show up in test
