Multiple Sclerosis Joint Pain
Is exophoria, sacroiliac joint dysfunction/ pain, swelling possibly related to Multiple Sclerosis?
My CT scan of the abdomen and pelvis showed sclerosis on both sides of the SI joints, indicating sacroiltis. Is this indicative of multiple sclerosis?
Of course not: "Sclerosis" is a general term that refers to pathological hardening of tissue due especially to calcification or overgrowth of fibrous tissue. In the CNS, where there is no fibrous tissue, it refers to an analogous process of tissue degeneration. Multiple sclerosis by definition occurs only in the CNS, not in joints. This sort of information is readily obtainable from a quick web search. ...Read more
I have all the symptoms of multiple sclerosis, but it didn't show up on the mri, could i still have ms? What else could it be? I'm negative for lupus
Lots of things: Ruling MS in or out is much easier than it used to be, but it still requires training, skill & expertise that you'll never get from "Doctor Google."

Good thing is relapse rate is reduced during 2-3rd trimester. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

My head is moving(nodding) involuntary since along time but it's increased nowadays..My aunt has multiple sclerosis and i'm afraid that I have it too?
Nonspecific: You describe a head tremor which could be due to many causes, including heredofamilial essential tremor, hyperthyroidism, issues with cerebellar brain stem connections, Wilson's disease, and medication reactions. This alone would not confirm MS, and your aunt's illness, is NOT a predictor of increased risk in you. Have a neurologist check this out. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
