Unclear question: SCA wasn't "discovered" any more than heart failure, epilepsy and schizophrenia were discovered. They've always been with us. SCA was first systematically DESCRIBED in the 19th century. It wasn't "misdiagnosed" as anything. The CAUSES of SCA have been discovered only recently. There are at least 50 different types of SCA. Are you asking about any one in particular? ...Read more

Something strange happened to me once. I suddenly saw only black, then it went completely white. My vision returned slowly, everything was bright.
Transient blindness: Symptoms such as yours can be caused by a drop in blood pressure or to a "mini-stroke" (transient ischemic attack). These conditions, however, are much more likely in someone older than you. In young people, transient vision loss is more likely related to migraine (even if you didn't have a headache) or to hyperventilation. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Got concussion on jan 14th my head really hurts is this post concussion syndrome was told by ER it was how long till i can play sports?
One week after no: More headaches is the minimum recommendation. You may need longer depending on the severity of your concussion. You should not just be relying on the recommendations of the er doctor. You should be evaluated by your primary care doctor and obtain clearance from them before playing any sports. I know you want to play sports, but your brain needs time to heal. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Hi approximately 3 yrs ago I injured my maniscus and it was torn. Wore a brace and did physio until it healed. Today I simply knelt down into a carp?
The answer: may surprise you! Menisci are made of CARTILAGE and when torn they DO NOT HEAL> Physical therapy results in strengthening of the muscles AROUND your knee thus making the torn meniscus less symptomatic!

Sometimes there are delayed reactions so keep a close observation of the area where you were bitten and if it should develop more swelling or increase in pain you should have it checked by a provider. Make sure you are having no other numbness or problems around the area. Keep it clean ...Read more
