Would Multiple System atrophy cause dizzy, tach up to 180bpm, shaky, memory issues, vision problems, twitching, headaches, high epinephrine...?

Never seen 180 BPM: I've treated many a patient with MSA and recently lost a patient who was a good friend of mine to the same diagnosis after his 10 year battle. I've never seen a heart rate of 180 BPM. That's not autonomic dysfunction anymore as much as sinus node problem with the heart itself. MSA will cause more disruption of a dramatic nature with blood pressure but not escalate heart rate to those extremes. ...Read more

You need to worry: The symptoms you describe are serious. Many cities big & small offer medical care for free. I would suggest that you call the nearest hospital, church, or even the Red Cross and see if they can recommend an organization that can help you. Also you can call the county medical society for help. Any of the suggestions I noted can be found in the local phone book. PLEASE get going. ...Read more

Dizziness for 6 months. Gets worse with head movements, sometimes vertigo. Plus tinnitus, hyperacusis and vision problems. MRI fine. Any advice?

Dizziness for 6 months. Gets worse with head movements, sometimes vertigo. Plus tinnitus, hyperacusis and vision problems. MRI fine. Any advice?

Likely central: Hi Joe, dizziness with visual acuity changes and hyperacusis may point to a central problem rather than a problem with your inner ear. One of the more common conditions associated with this constellation of symptoms is migraine variant. I'd consider obtaining vestibular testing and if negative, a neurologic evaluation. ...Read more

Chest pains, chronic diarrhea, dizziness when laying down, swollen tonsils (for over two months), extreme fatigue, numb scalp and feet, vision problems?

Hard to say: You have quite a variety of symptoms which could be from many many different causes. It sounds like you have seen at least one medical doctor and had some superficial testing done. I would encourage you to see a primary care physician who can manage or care instead of seeking treatment at urgent care facility or emergency department. Then if specialty consultation such as ENT, gastroenterology is needed your primary care physician can arrange these. Your constellation of symptoms however does not point to a specific diagnosis and I think you need to seek medical attention. ...Read more

You need evaluation: You need to be evaluated by a neurologist, a psychiatrist, an ophthalmologist, a gastroenterologist, and a psychologist for neuropsych testing. Yours is a very complicated case that will take a team of physicians or a very bright internist to diagnose. Please ask your general practitioner for referrals to the above specialties until a cause for all of your symptoms is identified. ...Read more

Do vision problems like blurry or double vision come and go with ms or do they stick around after they start? At what point should you get glasses?

Do vision problems like blurry or double vision come and go with ms or do they stick around after they start? At what point should you get glasses?

Optic Neuritis: Vision loss in multiple sclerosis is secondary to optic neuritis, which often resolves mostly if not totally. Color vision and contrast sensitivity may remain impaired even when visual acuity improves. No harm in wearing glasses, but see a low vision specialist to avoid the intellectually-barren "balance lens." Double vision can be due to intranuclear ophthalmoplegia or a cranial neuropathy. ...Read more
