I had my thyroid removed 2 yrs ago, t-levels are ok but I have all the symptoms of MS but my MRI is clean, what other autoimmune disease could i have?

I had my thyroid removed 2 yrs ago, t-levels are ok but I have all the symptoms of MS but my MRI is clean, what other autoimmune disease could i have?

"all the symptoms": Do not understand what you are describing, and cannot easily relate your thyroid to ms, or other neurological problems. If you had an immune thyroid issue, you could have other immune problems such as pernicious anemia. Provide more direct information, please. ...Read more

If taking 100mcgsfentanyl patch for ms, would a local anesthesia be enough for a biopsy for thyroid?

It should: I would expect that a local anesthetic for a procedure such as a thyroid biopsy would be sufficient independent of narcotic usage history. Local anesthetics are not less effective in that situation. ...Read more

What medications can help the forgetfulness associated with ms. I takw copaxone daily. No other medicatiins. Lab work chemistries and thyroid are ok?

What medications can help the forgetfulness associated with ms. I takw copaxone daily. No other medicatiins. Lab work chemistries and thyroid are ok?

Common problem: Cognitive issues occur in at least 65% of all ms patients, and the fatigue makes all far worse. Since much is associated with burden of disease, you would be advised to try a more potent medicine. Both tysabri and Gilenya may assist cognitive and fatigue issues. You might try symptom relief with Nuvigil or modafanil, and galantamine might help memory. Would not continue copaxone. ...Read more

Ms, myasthenia, gravis disease, tumour, thyroid other than this is there any other neurological problem that cause double vision?

Ms, myasthenia, gravis disease, tumour, thyroid other than this is there any other neurological problem that cause double vision?

Good list: You have a good list of possibilities that can cause double vision. A couple of other things to consider: head injury-the 6th cranial nerve is sensitive and can be stretched or damaged, thus leading to one eye not being able to look outwards. An aneurysm right next to the 3rd nerve can also cause double vision. A stroke of the brainstem affecting 3, 4, 6 nerve nuclei can lead to double vision. ...Read more

Been told I have a full thyroid. Blood work fine. Would an MRI with contrast detect thyroid cancer? Had a recent one for an MS checkup.

Been told I have a full thyroid. Blood work fine. Would an MRI with contrast detect thyroid cancer? Had a recent one for an MS checkup.

no MRI: You don't need an MRI of the thyroid. I am not sure you need anything. What is a "full thyroid"? You have to ask your doctor what is meant by that. It may mean it is slightly enlarged. Most of the causes of that are benign. You may want to see an endocrinologist.... Rather than get an unnecessary test. Also, be careful not to overreact to things your doctor may say/write. ...Read more

After coming off steriods via IV for MS I feel like my thyroid has gone too. My hair and skin is brittle, very sleepy, my period is a mess, 15lbs up?

After coming off steriods via IV for MS I feel like my thyroid has gone too. My hair and skin is brittle, very sleepy, my period is a mess, 15lbs up?

Analysis: Would not hurt to get a thyroid blood survey, but steroid usage as can cause many of your issues, especially the weight gain and hormonal changes. Another issue, in my opinion, is absence on your list of a specific MS disease modifying therapy, which is critical to your future stability. Did you forget to list such an important item? ...Read more
