Hearing Loss

Hello to everyone, I would like to politely ask you if anybody has experienced recently a relapse that includes hearing loss.

My left ear is literally picking up only certain amount of frequencies and volumes for about 1 week now that I hope will slowly fix if left untreated with corticosteroids.

Should I be patient (in the terms no permanent damage will occur), and wait or should I rush up to the hospital for my ...

Autopsy findings consisted of numerous variably sized demyelinated plaques involving the periventricular cerebral white matter and cerebellum.

Lhermitte's sign

Hi all

My girlfriend discovered a new friend 4 days ago : a guy named Lhermitte, who's dwelling in her back. I hate this disease, and it seems to hate me too, by worsening so fast.

I have a question about this : if Lhermitte is part of a relapse, may it disappear like other symptoms with remission ? Did some of you experienced Lhermitte's sign going away ?

Thanks

Testosterone and sparrows' brains

Here's a bit more evidence for the neuroprotective effect of testosterone – it might seem a bit off the wall to discuss the song-producing bits of a sparrow's brain, but I suppose neurons are neurons!

IV or oral treatments for Lyme and/or MS?

I was diagnosed with MS, and recently diagnosed as having Lyme disease (positive western blot).

Is anyone being treated with antibiotics, IV or oral treatments for Lyme and/or MS?

And also if you are being treated with antibiotics, which doctor do you have - Neurologist, Lyme Doctor, General Practitioner?

Also, is your treatment covered by your Insurance?

Please let me know and thanks for your help,

Rob

McAlpine's 4th edition

I thought some of you might find Section 3, chapter 8, heading "THE SPECTRUM OF DISORDERS MIMICKING MULTIPLE SCLEROSIS", subheading "DISEASES THAT MAY CAUSE MULTIPLE LESIONS OF THE CENTRAL NERVOUS SYSTEM AND ALSO OFTEN FOLLOW A RELAPSING-REMITTING COURSE" written by David Miller and Alastair Compston.

Of course the book goes into details of the diseases but I have to type all this so I'm just giving the disease names.


PLEASE KEEP IN MIND THAT WHAT ...

The stomach and enteroviruses

Any one else feel that their MS is somehow related to a history of gastric/intestinal viruses? My husband almost died as an infant, from a virus which left him severely dehydrated. He's since had a "sensitive stomach" -has contracted food poisoning on several occasions, and suffered more than his share of stomach flus. Conversely, he has never had respiratory difficulties- a cold now and then, but not much above the belt.

When he was dx ...
