Is nuclear sclerosis of the eye serious and is it associated with diseases such as ms?

Not associated: Nuclear sclerosis is a description of your cataract. A cataract is a clouding or opacification of the lens (nucleus in your case) inside your eye, this can result in decreased vision with time. A cataract typically will progress with age and worsen due to sun, tobacco, steroid meds, surgery, trauma, and eye inflammation. It is not typically associated with ms. See your eye doctor for eval. ...Read more

What is "senile nuclear sclerosis"?

What is "senile nuclear sclerosis"?

Senile nuclear...: Nuclear sclerosis is an age-related change in the density of the crystalline lens nucleus that occurs in all older animals. It is caused by compression of older lens fibers in the nucleus by new fiber formation. The denser construction of the nucleus causes it to scatter light. Although nuclear sclerosis may describe a type of early cataract in human medicine. ...Read more

What does increased femoral head fragment sclerosis avn likely given fx timing broke her hip in early august?

I don't understand--: The question fully, but the gist of it is, as I can make of it: ms rabbit79828 had a fx of the hip about 3 months ago ; the head part has gone on to develop avn. Probably the fx was too high ; was fixed. This is a well known complication of such fxs.

If you had multiple sclerosis would it be possible for it to cause pain in your head as well? Not just in your back.

If you had multiple sclerosis would it be possible for it to cause pain in your head as well? Not just in your back.

Of course: Multiple sclerosis can cause facial pain in the form of trigeminal neuralgia, which is an attack of severe pain lasting a few seconds at a time. There is clearly a comorbidity with migraine as at least 52% of ms pts have these headaches. Also, a lesion in the midbrain/periaqueductal grey area is associated with frequent headaches and head pains. ...Read more

Could any sort of head injury/brain damage cause multiple sclerosis?

Could any sort of head injury/brain damage cause multiple sclerosis?

No, trauma does not: Cause ms. Rather it is a disease in those who possess a genetic susceptibility, brought to clinical attention by environmental causes, and this sequence evolves into an autoimmune process. Injury may seem to worsen ms, but this represents an additive damage, not a cause. ...Read more

How to detect multiple sclerosis eye symptoms?

Variable, but: Quite more common is optic neuritis, where unilateral loss of vision, associated with pain on eye motion, color desaturation, and possibly an abnormal pupillary light response. Other eye issues may include abnormal eye movements, such as nystagmus or double vision, and an item called internuclear ophthalmoplegia, which can associate both of the latter phenomena. ...Read more

Multiple sclerosis and my eye sight, is there a relation between the two?

Multiple sclerosis and my eye sight, is there a relation between the two?

You bet: MS commonly affects the eyes, and if you have loss of vision, double vision, any abnormal eye movements, it is possible that MS is the cause. But other eye events can co-exist, so see an ophthalmologist to get this pinned down. Hope you are taking a potent MS disease modifying agent, as this can protect your eyes. ...Read more

Which type of symptoms with the eyes does someone with MS (multiple sclerosis) have?

Which type of symptoms with the eyes does someone with MS (multiple sclerosis) have?

Vision loss pain: Optic neuritis is inflammation of the optic nerves that presents with vision loss, pain with eye movement & "fading vision" when a person gets hot (like in the shower). It is most commonly associated with ms- multiple sclerosis. Ms also causes pars planitis -inflammation in the eye that presents with floaters and/or vision loss. A few of my patients have inflammation in the front of the eye too. ...Read more

Abnormal eye movements with double vision may occur with brainstem inflammation, (mlf syndrome), various eye incoordination issues can occur, and vertigo could be due to eye or ear. Some develop optic atrophy, and others may get uveitis or macular edema associated with meds. Pars planitis? ...Read more

Yes.: Multiple sclerosis is associated with several ocular findings that can be diagnosed by an ophthalmologist or neuro-ophthalmologist. Optic neuritis can be both a presenting symptom and a complication of ms. Other eye findings can include motility disorders of the eyes and retinal vasculitis. ...Read more

Sorry, off and on eye twitching every day for past month and lower burning back pain when lying down, relapsing remitting multiple sclerosis?

Sorry, off and on eye twitching every day for past month and lower burning back pain when lying down, relapsing remitting multiple sclerosis?

Let's analyze: The eye twitching could be ocular myokymia, due to eyestrain, fatigue, stress, chemical imbalance, and the back pain may be due to degenerative spondylosis, or a disc issue. You list ampyra, (dalfampridine) a drug used to improve walking in ms patients, but do not list other ms disease modifiers. Do you in fact have ms? Maybe, your neurologist can sort this out if indeed you do.. ...Read more

My eye has been twitching for wks. I have dry eye but heard it was a sign of multiple sclerosis... My mom and sister have MS... Should I get MRI?

Doubt MS: You most likely have orbital myokymia, which can be due to eyestrain, fatigue, lack of sleep, stress, chemical imbalance. The odds of your acquiring MS with your family background is about 2-4%, at most. Lastly, lots of comments about MS are provided by numerous non-medical "experts" both online and in the community. Check with your eye doctor about your current issues. ...Read more

Anxiety & multiple sclerosis sure do have the same symptoms. How do you tell the difference? Doc won't test for ms, even though twitching & eye problem.

Anxiety & multiple sclerosis sure do have the same symptoms. How do you tell the difference? Doc won't test for ms, even though twitching & eye problem.

MS vs anxiety: Can be tricky in some cases, but usually anxiety has "extra" symptoms and signs which are unlikely to be caused by MS. Also signs of anxiety may be fleeting. Eye twitching alone is not likely to be MS. I do not know what your eye symptoms are, but a dilated eye exam can rule out involvement of the optic nerve which is a key finding for MS. ...Read more

My head is moving (nodding) involuntary since along time but it's increased nowadays. My aunt has multiple sclerosis and I'm afraid that I have it too?

Nonspecific: You describe a head tremor which could be due to many causes, including heredofamilial essential tremor, hyperthyroidism, issues with cerebellar brain stem connections, Wilson's disease, and medication reactions. This alone would not confirm MS, and your aunt's illness, is NOT a predictor of increased risk in you. Have a neurologist check this out. ...Read more

Can a head injury with brain damage lead to multiple sclerosis?

Can a head injury with brain damage lead to multiple sclerosis?

No: Ms is at this point considered to be an immune related condition. The cause of MS unfortunately less understood: most neuroscientist feel that the immune system ("body police") attack the brain. This is reflected in the highly efficacious MS therapy available such as interferons, cop axone and tysabri (natalizumab). ...Read more

Does a head CT scan help diagnose multiple sclerosis? If a CT scan is normal, is it still likely that multiple sclerosis can be present?

Does a head CT scan help diagnose multiple sclerosis? If a CT scan is normal, is it still likely that multiple sclerosis can be present?

Takes time to show: "Multiple lesions over time and space" is how med students learn about MS. It evolves over time. Sometimes subtle MRI findings can suggest it, but are non-specific ("unidentified bright objects"). But it can take a long time before MS presents itself. If seriously concerned, see a neurologist. ...Read more

What causes the eye to go bloodshot when you wake up?

Less common conditions are parasitic infections and some inherited conditions. Trauma of course is also common. If you truly mean 'behind' the eye ball, then this rare event is usually traumatic or do to blood vessel disease. ...Read more
