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

Tt(2mo. Ago, pap carc.), 3mm tumor, no rai, TSH 33, tgab 70(140% jump post-op), tg <.02. Endo waiting 2mo. To eval. Is onocologist warranted?
Wait.: Doesn't sound like you need oncologist as your tumor has been removed - it was really very tiny. 3 mm? A micro carcinoma. How did one find this? I wonder if this was just an incidental finding. Tumors of this size are not uncommon and their clinical significance is not well understood. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I would like the opinion of a doc who knows lyme.Does a negative IgG and IgM exclude 100% lyme?Got brain lesions, fever for years, anxiety, MS excluded.
NO, does NOT exclude: One of the reasons there is so much controversy about Lyme is that the tests are imperfect, with both false positives and false negatives. 20-30% of those with Lyme may have a negative Western Blot. With your symptoms I would be very suspicious for Lyme. It is ideal to work with a doctor knowledgeable about Lyme who uses an integrative approach.

It means they took an extra year as a fellow at a spine program. Good luck! ...Read more
MRI showed minimal nonspecific white matter change = diagnosis: migraines, premature vessel ischemic. Doc said take topamax (topiramate) (24yrold-F). 2nd opinion?
Migraines: White matter lesions described may be seen with migraine, cigarette smoking, head trauma, hypertension, and aging. Would not worry about these lesions, and instead focus upon headache control measures, such as prevention with topirimate. But many other OTC and prescription items which can do as good or better a job without adverse effects from topirimate. Maybe HA specialist can serve your need ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
