Seen ophthalmologist  several times regarding flashing blue lights. No history of migraines. diangosis sle, hbp & 2 brain aneurisms in '89.

Not in rearview?: If ophtho does not have an answer with recurrent symptoms, then you should either consult a neurologist or perhaps a neuroophthalmologist. No one dr knows all, and if your eye dr doesn't have an answer, ask another. ...Read more

Evaluate chiari: The symptoms you report are most likely due to the chiari malformation.

Pale, unresponsive but eyes open, low bp, stiff---signs of tia, cva or hypotension?

Pale, unresponsive but eyes open, low bp, stiff---signs of tia, cva or hypotension?

Hypotension: Of the three choices given hypotension makes most sense. Neither cva nor TIA generally produces hypotension. I would be concerned about meds, metabolic and cardiac issues. Needs a few labs to sort this out quickly unless this contradicts his advance directive. ...Read more

Periventricular isch chnges, infarcts both cerebral hemispheres incl rt parietal? Vascular event.Blood & vessels ok.Next check pfo, but could it be  ms

Possible, but...: Fine to check for pfo, but real question involves potentials for stroke. You could have cadasil, which is a genetic disorder. A spinal tap could assist in diagnosis perhaps. Vasculitis, arteritis, even sjogren's might be considered. Description not necessarily ms, but part of considerations. ...Read more

Brain MRI findings. Tiny nonspecific periventricular and subcortical white matter. Possiblities mini strokes, vasculaties, ms. I shuffle my feet & drop?

Brain MRI findings. Tiny nonspecific periventricular and subcortical white matter. Possiblities mini strokes, vasculaties, ms. I shuffle my feet & drop?

Nonspecific finding: White matter changes that are nonspecific are sometimes over reported or under-reported on MRI studies. They may be misread and really suggest MS, they may be a finding with no clinical relevance. Usually it is the latter. It sounds like the brain MRI did not help that much. So you shuffle your feet and drop? What do you mean by drop? Do you have numbness? Why was the brain MRI done? ...Read more

SUGGESTIONS: If not yet done, get MRI of neck and gray matter (latter using dir). If one or more lesions in either area, plus the new and old MRI lesions, almost certainly ms. Could consider cadasil, or lyme disease, but MRI data points to a different direction. Would also get an opinion at your nearest medical school. Your situation is challenging but not unique, and this can be treated. ...Read more

Very common: Very common read on an MRI but at the same time, hard to make an assessment without actually seeing the pictures.

For Neurologist with sizeable Tecfidera MS pt load...Acute eosinophilia 1.4/12% 3wks on Tecfidera w/o new Sxs. What "transient increase"s have u seen?

For Neurologist with sizeable Tecfidera MS pt load...Acute eosinophilia 1.4/12% 3wks on Tecfidera w/o new Sxs. What "transient increase"s have u seen?

Experiences: First, am not enamored with Tecfidera, as over 20% of my patients have found it intolerable due to GI adverse events, and many have found it to be ineffectual. Can cause drops in lymphocytes and also affect other white cells, and your eosinophil elevation could very well represent a low level allergic response which may depart in a few weeks. Clarify the issues with your neurologist. ...Read more
