I have a tumor in my head and I think I have MS also. Is there any hope for me?

I have a tumor in my head and I think I have MS also. Is there any hope for me?

Yes, can be helped.: The tumor could cause many neurological symptoms and needs to be managed as effectively as possible, depending on characteristics and pathology. Possible to have both a tumor and ms, but latter should be considered only if you have signs of clearcut demyelinating disease involving spinal cord, with a diagnostic spinal fluid profile, as brain lesions in presence of tumor could be misleading. ...Read more

My obgyn. Doctor said that my baby's head may be small at birth, what can this mean I am 8 months pregnant and I have MS and mental disabilities

My obgyn. Doctor said that my baby's head may be small at birth, what can this mean I am 8 months pregnant and I have MS and mental disabilities

Hi,: Hi, I think it is very important to ask your obstetrician what she or he is referring to. On the one hand, it could be that your fetus’ head is small enough that it might allow the delivery to go more easily. Regarding head size, find out if the doctor is referring to a circumference that is on the low end of normal. Also, be aware that the measurements taken in utero may not be exactly the same as when the baby is measured at birth. There is a genetic component regarding head circumference. In other words, a number of members of a family may have a small head and are completely healthy with normal intelligence. This is called benign familial microcephalus. Before you start worrying about whether this is a defect, please sit down and talk to the doctor and ask for an explanation. Ask your doctor is there is a concern regarding your baby's head or if she or he is simply notifying you that the baby's head may be small. ...Read more

Head pressure, dizziness, and blurry vision for over 3 years without a diagnosis in a 36 year-old, with empty sella on MRI.....?

Empty Sella Syndrome: This case most likely constitutes Empty Sella Syndrome (ESS), which can be associated with Pseudotumor Cerebri. Next step is to get a full endocrinology workup, especially examining pituitary hormone levels. A full ophthalmological/retinal exam and lumbar puncture can also be done to evaluate further. Treatment can then be devised based on these test and examination results. ...Read more
