My 22 year old sister was just diagnosed with MS this summer. She noticed symptoms at 19: my age. What are the chances i may have it. She's so young?
Remote odds: Even identical twins do not share a full risk of acquiring ms, and siblings have have very low incidence indeed. So, chances are very much in your favor that this will not occur. However, if you are concerned, do this for the two of you: supplement vitamin d-3 at least 5000 units daily, do not smoke, do aerobic exercise, and use a low fat diet. For you sister, find an ms specialist in your city. ...Read more

Hello. I was diagnosed with BRE. But I had my first and single seizure at 15 years old. Is it possible? Is this a wrong diagnose? I'm 20 years old now. What is the chance to have one more seizure? Sorry for the bad English.
Notes about BRE: BRE is a condition that does not normally affect teenagers at onset. You might consider whether there is a different cause instead. BRE normally starts in children, and it is diagnosed by clinical history, exam, and specific EEG findings. Many people with BRE stop having seizures by the time they are teenagers. ...Read more
Im a 21 year old male . What exactly is high functioning autism? Apparently I am disgnosed with it. :( is that a bad thing?
Forget the label: If you are functioning well, then i would simply forget the label. If you heading into difficulties you should seek out psychotherapy or psychiatric treatment just as anyone else would. The label at this point could only be helpful in terms of entitlements, but it sounds like you will not be needing them provided you are able to live independently. It is possible that the label no longer applies. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I am 40 yrs old and have a problem of head/neck jerking. This has started at age of 12 yrs (i guess). Is it a tic? If so please give me a medication.

If the problem is getting worse, you may want to see your primary care or neurologist for treatment options. They will do further testing to see what medication is best. ...Read more
Hello my 2 year girl has duane syndrome and might be an asperger. Is that two syndromes connected?
No: I'm not aware of any literature or studies that suggest a link between Duane and Asperger's syndrome. While vision problems may interfere with 'normal' eye contact, this is not the same as the behavioral avoidance of contact with others seen in Asperger's. Be sure to address any concerns with your daughter's pediatrician. I hope this helps. ...Read more

Could I have developed depersonalization or dissociation disorder as a child? I had my first attack at age 6 and it was when my mom moved out. BPD
Yes: Emotional trauma in childhood is very much associated w/ dissociation. In fact it is the 'mother' load for symptoms that comprise attachment and stability disorders. That said, w/ deep psychological therapy so rare now, these root issues are often (always) neglected in favor of pharma-solutions. You may find a worthy talk therapist or you might work through things in poems or art. You're worth it! ...Read more

Expert Assessment!: This is one question that you'd definitely want answered by an expert who could get a detailed developmental history of your son & who could assess him in person. Gaining an understanding of what's behind these behaviors sounds very important, so you know best how to help.
