Can my child out grow jra? I read she can and also read she can't they jra is a life long condition but can have remission and flares
Can outgrow: Many children will see their jra resolve by the late teens or early twenties. This is especially true of the pauciarticular form (4 or less joints involved). The polyarticular form (greater than 4 joints involved) also can frequently resolve, although not as frequently as the milder form. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Help please? What is the difference between cancer going into remission and it no longer existing?
Can be tricky: A cancer is in complete remission when it's not detectable by physical exam, labs, or scans. In some cases, the cancer is gone for good (cured). In other cases, it's still present in microscopic form and thus undetectable. Those are the ones that "come back" months or years later. They don't come back, they were never gone. Only time can sometimes help tell one from the other. ...Read more

How long can someone survive after effectively being treated for hep c and on " remission", one dr says ur levels are undetactable other says they are?
Difficult question: Part of this depends on the type of leukemia: acute or chronic. The standard thought is 5 years for acute leukemia. However, the risk of relapse is significantly high in the first 2 years, so every year after this reduces the risk of recurrence significantly if you are followed closely by your oncologist. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Lupus can cause leukopenia: Lupus can cause leukopenia. Methotrexate can cause leukopenia. So the reason you might have it depends on the rest of the manifestations of your lupus.

It depends...: The conventional wisdom is for a patient with a first depressive episode, treatment should last for 6-9 months once remission is achieved because it reduces the risk of recurrence. However, if a patient has significant ongoing or anticipated stress (move, job change, etc.) or has a history of multiple depressive episodes, a physician may recommend the patient remain on medication for longer. ...Read more

Is long-term remission more likely for Accutane patients with milder acne? (assuming the same cumulative dose is taken)
Is long-term remission from Accutane more likely on patients with milder acne as opposed to severe acne? (assuming the same cumulative dose is taken)
One moment....: Accutane is best reserved for severe / deep / cystic acne, as it's unpleasant and there are some risks. I usually see good results with systemic antibiotics & topical therapy for the milder stuff. However, it's extremely effective, and a long-term remission is the rule. Being a teen / young adult is rough enough without acne, and i believe it's well worth as many courses as you actually need. ...Read more

I'm hallucinating the smell of smoke. I've had MS for 24 years, but my MS neurologist says this isn't an MS symptom. I had 3 prolonged episodes of this smoke smelling in may-july 2010, every day for 2 weeks, then 2 weeks remission.
I had an MRI for epile
COMPLEX ISSUE: Your symptoms are atypical for ms, but not impossible. Sounds like there was a consideration for auras associated with epilepsy, and questions of lesions in olfactory areas. However, you may be experiencing ephaptic reactions due to neuronal short circuiting associated with demyelination. Not a true seizure but aed's do help in most cases. I do think, unless you have sinus pathology, due to ms. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
