Re: question about my symptoms

Gotcha, thanks! I've taken neurontin, albeit a small dosage compared to most I think, and it didn't help.

Just frustrating to me. I'm 23 and just want to know what's up.

No, he has not. Also, what is that exactly?

question about my symptoms

First of all, let me start by saying I've had bloodwork done for Lyme, B12, rheumatoid, rheumatoid factor, copper, liver and kidney functions, diabetes, --- all of it is normal. Also, I've had two separate MRI's. One last March. My MRI came back with "some abnormalities", and some lesions -- couldn'...

Red feet, needle poking

Been some time since I've been here. At night, when my tingling is worse than usual, my feet are extremely red and the veins seems protruding in them even more than usual. Likewise, when standing I feel like there are spikes poking my feet from all sides -- a sort of painful itch that lasts for just...

Re: MRI Results

No real clue about the copper levels yet. She said they were only slightly low and would be improved by a multivitamin containing copper. My symptoms? Last year I was here discussing heat sensitivity that sent tons of pins and needles shocks down my spine/crawling up back of my head for a good bit. ...

Re: MRI Results

Anyone have a first MRI like this? Feedback? Anyone? My 1st MRIs were also considered insufficient for dx. The key issue is the "multiple" part of MS -- dx requires two attacks and/or two different lesion areas separated in time and space . Check out the "2010 Revisions" of the McDonald criteria in...

MRI Results

My MRI came back with "some abnormalities", and some lesions -- couldn't hear if it was one or two, but lesion(s). The radiologist stated that it "is not convincing of MS", and my bloodwork came back normal (save very slightly low copper levels which I was told to help with a vitamin). I'm not convi...

Re: New Symptoms

Thoughts anyone? Yeah: What did the doc say? Not a whole lot yet. Was alarmed that I have family history of MS, but was quick to say that susceptibility is generally only recognized or seen from first generation relatives (in my case, it's second -- my grandmother). Issued the MRI because my sympto...

Re: New Symptoms

Had my neuro appt today. Didn't pass the muscle strength tests, was wobbly on my balance test, not terrible just swayed when having feet together and eyes closed. Took 8 vials of blood testing for a lot of stuff -- b12, thyroid things, sjorgens's -- and was supposed to have an MRI today. Didn't happ...

Re: New Symptoms

Another new symptom. My head has a minor tremor I think. I've noticed it when I'm sitting or relaxed (not laying down). It's a minor yes-yes tremor. It doesn't happen all the time, but I notice it and if I focus on it I can make it stop. Is this, I guess, typical? I also have the "yes-yes" tremor. ...

New Symptoms

Long post warning: I have a nueuro appt next month. Last year I was here discussing heat sensitivity that sent tons of pins and needles shocks down my spine/crawling up back of my head for a good bit. It happened for a few months and would come when I least expected it. Never really had any symptoms...
