Am diagnosed with MS having 2 lesions on spine causing electric shock symptoms up spine into head, could I safely take hypericum to dampen pain.?

Am diagnosed with MS having 2 lesions on spine causing electric shock symptoms up spine into head, could I safely take hypericum to dampen pain.?

Why consider this?: Hypericum is a homeopathic remedy for anxiety and depression, and would have absolutely no effect on a Lhermitte's phenomenon, which you describe. You would likely find better benefits from gabapentin, Lyrica, Cymbalta, Gralise, or Horizant, all prescription meds which your doctor could provide. Also, make certain that you are taking a potent MS medication, such as one of the orals, or Tysabri (natalizumab). ...Read more

Do Head MRI look for specific problems? Are all areas looked at thoroughly? Is the Clival always checked or only when requested? Can lesions be missed

Do Head MRI look for specific problems? Are all areas looked at thoroughly? Is the Clival always checked or only when requested? Can lesions be missed

The clivus,: Part of the skull base, is always included on a brain mri. As far as lesions being "missed", no test is perfect, and no human endeavor is without the possibility of error. Fortunately, the level of training for those interpreting MRI and for other specialists mitigates the risk to the extent possible. ...Read more

Had CT scan done of my sinuses today and she showed me my sinues and top of head and said no lesions. Would this show cerebellum?

Had CT scan done of my sinuses today and she showed me my sinues and top of head and said no lesions. Would this show cerebellum?

Probably not: Most dedicated sinus CT scans focus specifically on the sinuses, which are located around the nose in the front of the head. The cerebellum is in the back of the head. Also, the images on a sinus CT are produced in such a way as to optimize appearance of the bony structures, which makes it hard to see the parts of the brain that happen to show up in the images. ...Read more

Sarcoid lesions in marrow of humeral head and neck. Small 4 mm tear of the anterior fibers of the supraspinatus tendon. Rest of rotor cuff ok.-surgery?

How much pain: Are you having? If you are in persistent pain and cannot use your shoulder or have night pain, typically the tear would be responsible and surgery might be indicated. Most docs have to see the MRI to determine need for surgery. If you have little pain and or are using the shoulder without too much problems you probably don't need surgery. ...Read more

Possible cystic lesions on head of pancreas vs dilated distal common dt. If it is gallstone, will I need surgery to get rid of it?

Possibly: Cystic abnormalities of the pancreas are not uncommon. Mri imaging characteristics can raise or lower our suspicion of it representing or becoming something more worrisome that would require surgery. If you have gallstones in the common channel between the liver and the intestine, ERCP is necessary to remove the stone from the duct and the standard recommendation is to remove the gallbladder. ...Read more

3mm hypodense liver lesion in caudate lobe & two 3mm hypodense pancreatic head lesions on CT in setting of carcinoid workup. Can these be tumors?

3mm hypodense liver lesion in caudate lobe & two 3mm hypodense pancreatic head lesions on CT in setting of carcinoid workup. Can these be tumors?

May or may not be: It takes time and follow up CT scans to see if these tumors are growing in size. If they are not tumors (cancer) it will remain unchanged in size over a period of 3-6 months. A biopsy may be required to confirm it in case these lesions are increasing in size (growing bigger). They are too small to do a biopsy now, need to be at least 1Cm or bigger. ...Read more

Hi! I have an MRI on disc of my head SAG view (LOCALIZER). There are many bright white spots/dashes. One near the cerebellum, one on the straight sinus, one near the pituitary gland, optic chiasma & aqueduct of midbrain. Are these considered lesions?

Hi! I have an MRI on disc of my head SAG view (LOCALIZER). There are many bright white spots/dashes. One near the cerebellum, one on the straight sinus, one near the pituitary gland, optic chiasma & aqueduct of midbrain. Are these considered lesions?

Impossible: To venture a guess without the images. Normal and abnormal structures can appear bright or dark depending on the sequence used. Also, a "localizer" is a quick initial image used for planning the rest of the scan, it is not sufficient, nor in most cases very useful, for diagnostic purposes. ...Read more

Why my eyes are not white?

Why my eyes are not white?

Various reasons: The conjunctiva, which lines the surface of the eye, can develop patches of pigmentation over the years to have a "muddy" appearance. Yellowish spots on the inside and outside of the iris called pinguecula are also normal changes, usually related to exposure to sun and wind. Redness can be from allergy, dry eye, and other causes. Any new pigmented place on the eye in a caucasian should be checked. ...Read more
