Symptom: Lhermitte's Sign

"A symptom is any subjective evidence of disease, while a sign is any objective evidence of disease. Therefore, a symptom is a phenomenon that is experienced by the individual affected by the disease, while a sign is a phenomenon that can be detected by someone other than the individual affected by the disease."

Only one in 10 Americans eat enough fruits and vegetables

Only one in 10 Americans eat enough fruits and vegetables, CDC study finds

https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/201 ... tudy-finds

Only 12% meet the daily fruit recommendation and 9% the vegetable recommendation, and people living in poverty have especially low rates.

Improving these rates is particularly challenging because just 2% of US farmland is devoted to growing fruits and vegetables, according to UCS. Reinhardt said farmers would need to grow almost twice as ...

(wow!) 2013 study: Evaluation of 25(OH)VitD3 wrt Serum Mg

this is of course assuming, given that the authors do not seem to have specified (!?!), that the units are mg/dl. (if any other typical units, the results are even higher levels).

The Brave Dreams clinical trial of venous PTA

https://jamanetwork.com/journals/jamaneurology/fullarticle/2664001

This trial will be accepted by most physicians and scientists. While it recommends follow-up trials the main conclusion was that PTA (the so-called and misnamed "Liberation" procedure) is safe, but ineffective. This was a sham-controlled, randomized trial, with randomization 2:1 in favour of the real procedure. This procedure, PTA, cannot be recommended for treatment of MS.

I have long been in favour of this procedure, and I believe I have had temporary and long-term ...

~ Incidental Findings ~


Everything in the photo below is considered an "incidental finding" and there's still no answer for what's causing my symptoms. The movement disorder specialist says the lesion is in one focal area and therefore wouldn't cause the symptoms that I'm having. She went on to say that she thinks it's incidental but offered to refer me for a second opinion. I have a follow-up appointment with the neuro-ophthalmologist on the 21st. If there are ...
