Has anyone ever had a patient experience psychological or neurological symtoms from flu vaccine? ( as in encephalitis, hyperactivity, insomnia, psychosis) why do some groups insist these dangers exist
I haven't: Those symptoms are possible but are very rare. Talk with your doctor about what the risk of those events are compared with the risk of coming down with the flu and experiencing a serious event from that. Some groups insist neurologic symptoms can occur because in fact they can occur, it's just that they rarely do. Docs need to discuss the pros and cons, not just emphasize one or the other. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Please, specify: Hydrops and dropsy are general terms and not used much anymore. You mention pulmonary hypertension. Your kids have pulmonary hypertension ? You mention tobacco use. I presume that you smoke, not the kidneys. Please, specify in your question the exact diagnosis of the kids and their age group and whether the disease runs in the family. ...Read more
How would you diagnose someone with random extreme fatigue (cant lift arms) tires when walking & nausea labs & MRI are clean, no MS, spinal tap normal?
Which Labs?: The MRI is useless when you have systemic signs like this. (Your WHOLE BODY cannot be imaged on MRI). The real question is what labs have been tested? Has your doctor looked for polymalgia rheumatica (PMR)? The CRP & ESR web tests are important for understanding, but anti-CCP & RF may be ordered. Best diagnosis is by a trained Rheumatologist - get a referral from your doc or use HealthTap Prime. ...Read more
Relatives from India to live permanently in Canada with us, but there are people in house with weak immune systems, could they bring 3 world diseases?
Possible but...: The most common illness in India that is uncommon in Canada is malaria, but it's only common in the region just south of Calcutta and is not contagious. People anywhere can have intestinal parasites but they are more common in India. With proper hygiene they are not readily transmitted but Dr. can test relatives for parasites and get them treated after they arrive. But generally no need to worry! ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Who do most people with Asperger's (myself included) seem very opinionated about their beliefs? like they should have the last word in an argument?
Great question: My feeling is that Asperger folks are much less TELEOLOGICALLY oriented in their thinking on life & its problems. That means everything that happens (good or bad) has an identifiable & definite cause as opposed to thinking more in the abstract (not necessarily religious but that's part of it as well). So, thinking becomes rigid/opinionated, & those with other answers to the question are just wrong ...Read more

Check food labels: Could you be missing hidden gluten. Are you careful going out to eat (foods that are gluen free that are cooked along side gluten containing foods)? Your doctor could check antibodies to see if your celiac is under control, if not you may be unknowingly eating gluten. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

In false memory syndrome , does patient always consider memories suggested by other or his memory develops this.n they have any false evidence in case?
When did it start.: In the fiasco surrounding the false memory scandal, memories were inserted or suggested or encouraged by the treating 'professionals.' A memory that existed before that, obviously was not. Remember too, we have our own false memories, distorted by time and distance and age. Some things that occurred when young seemed horrible then but may not have been odd (like dentist and shots at the doc). ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
How much progress can a non-specifically ill patient make with functional/alternative medicine things (like food intolerance, custom vitamins, etc)? Or, do non-specifically ill patients have things wrong with them outside scope of any 2016 medicine?
No clear diagnosis: Not having clarity on what is happening w/your health can be very frustrating. If you are asking about seeing a functional medicine doc, nutritionist integrative medicine doc, or the like, please do so. One size does not fit all and it takes detective work to find the root cause of symptoms many time. Nutritional panels (Spectracell lab) and food sensitivity testing (Great Plains lab) good. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Had stroke but tests all clear. Have found PFO with echo bubble study. Recommendation is to close it with procedure through groin? Any opinions ?
Mild CP suffers - why do they have difficulty with fine motor issues like spilling full glass? Can that go away? Those quick jerks and tensing?
Damaged wiring: Smooth motor movements require the interchange of nerve impulses through a variety of brain structures and the muscle groups. CP reflects a destruction of some of these nerves so refined movements are lost. Destroyed nerves are just that, destroyed. Once lost they do not come back. Therapy can help the patient think through many functions, but don't expect them to ever be perfect. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Colitis problems as a kid; now 25 & often have pain with stools and blood on tissue paper (from outside of anus, not intestine). Any Recommendations?
Irritable bowel: Your symptoms are suggesting irritable bowel with possible external hemorrhoids/ fissure. Early mild inflammatory disease cannot be ruled out yet, but if your symptoms worsen do mention them to your physician. Try to stay well hydrated, exercise daily, avoid constipation as much as possible. ...Read more
Any research on why some people get guillain-barre syndrome , when most don't? Does gbs tend to occur more in families with migraines/epilepsy?
Probably autoimmune: Preceding infection, such as flu, seems to trigger the event. The only variant with genetic predisposition is acute motor axonal neuropathy, in japan and china. Antibodies to gangliosides play a role. It is not more prevalent in families with migraines or epilepsy. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
10 weeks pg and think I ate something bad. No vomiting, but stool is loose. Not sure if nausea is from MS or bad food. Should I be concerned about baby?
I have been having blood in stool, had galbladder out. I have MS, dont take any narcotics. I eat healthy foods, what could be reason?
Several reasons: starting from the anus and rectum, all the way up to your mouth. Nature of blood: is it fresh, blood clots, dark stools, or black tarry stools? other symptoms as pain, urgency, spasms, etc. Better see your doctor for evaluation and referral to gastroenterologist if needed, most of time, it is something minor and would resolve, best wishes ...Read more
MS Contin (morphine) for 3 days for sciatica pain. Came down with severe constipation. Took laxative, anus hurts when passing stool and even at rest.Causes?
I was wondering about the possibility to have MS. MRI (0.3T, open) showed atleast 2 deep white matter lesions approx. 4 mm.
MS is a: Clinical diagnosis, not simply an imaging diagnosis. That said, and without the images or a more complete report, two 4mm white matter lesions would likely not be indicative of a high probability of MS. These types of findings are usually incidental, and increase in frequency with age. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Yes: Aubagio was just released for the treatment of relapsing-remitting multiple sclerosis. Bg-12 (oral fumarate) should be available before mid year. Both are oral drugs which will be added to the only other oral drug- gilenya (fingolimod). There are several other drugs which will be added within the next few years proving that there is reason to be optimistic about the future of ms treatment. ...Read more
Benign MS: Benign MS occurs in about 15% of people with relapsing remitting MS. It means a person has 1-2 attacks of MS symptoms and no other symptoms the rest of their life. We cannot determine who has or does not have this form of MS, but it would be nice to be able to determine this. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

Nothing spectacular,: Historically, the low fat swank diet was studied and seemed to reduce relapses a bit. The pulse counting diet looked at pulse elevation after food, and gradual items were eliminated until to pulse stayed stable with remaining items. Unlikely, it ever worked. So, doesn't hurt to do low fat diet, and add vitamin d-3 5000 units twice daily. Some initial value to vitamin a and maybe b complex. ...Read more
Prevention or Rx?: Ideally, someone diagnosed with MS has no lesions because they have responded well to treatment. The goal of treatment is to prevent attacks, and in a sense, to prevent lesions. It is not obvious that MS is the diagnosis if there are no lesions at the onset of the condition, however. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
very complex: First, ms is a disease of brain, spinal cord, and optic nerves. Of course could see weakness, imbalance, loss of vision, cognitive and fatigue issues. However, the organ systems that could deteriorate due to meds include bones (osteoporosis from your steroids), liver, thyroid, GI issues, etc. I do not see that you are on an ms medication, or vitamin d. Would recommend both if these absent. ...Read more
EDSS: There is not a staging system for MS as there is for cancer. That said, there is something called the EDSS, the disability scale, which is used to compare progression of MS in populations of people undergoing research. This is a ranking from 0-10 that is based on walking, how far, and with what kind of assistance. Not everyone with MS progresses or finds this scale useful. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
MRI is required: The diagnosis of ms can be made by history, examination, and mri, under the new 2010 mcdonald criteria for the diagnosis of multiple sclerosis. Your doctor may need additional testing such as optical coherence tomography, a procedure that evaluates the thickness of the optic nerve, but this is not mandatory. Spinal taps are not as common as in the past. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
