Had two syncope both had injury no test show reasons. Saw Nero and he said probably only fainting should I be concerned still to follow up on this?

Had two syncope both had injury no test show reasons. Saw Nero and he said probably only fainting should I be concerned still to follow up on this?

Mayneed further look: Talk to a cardiologist. You may need a tilt table study, a carotid massage to see if it causes any undue slowing of heart beat, an implantable loop recorder to be able to record your heart beat while you are having the syncope to see if it is a problem and / or an ep study to see if you are at risk for arrhythmia or slow heart beat. ...Read more

What can I take to help with nero fibroma tosis?

Neurofibromatosis: Neurofibromatosis type 1 and 2 are conditions caused by genetic reasons. Unfortunately, there is nothing you can take for these conditions. Treatment is only symptomatic, meaning if you had a tumor affecting your vision you can get a surgery and if you had seizures you can take anti-seizure medications. ...Read more

ILR: You probably would benefit from a tiny implantable monitor - ilr. It is ~ 2 cm long, 0.5 cm wide and is implanted through a minimal skin incision on your left chest close to the third rib and breastbone. It records heart rhythm for 2-3 years and can correlate it with a syncopal episode. The cause for ~ 30% of unexplained recurrent syncopal episodes can be diagnosed this way. ...Read more

I am having weird feelings after having two snyope. Get really weak and nervous. Also have heart arrhythmia. Should I be concerned? See nero on fri.

I am having weird feelings after having two snyope. Get really weak and nervous. Also have heart arrhythmia. Should I be concerned? See nero on fri.

See heart doc too: Since you mentioned having arrythmias which may have been the cause of your syncope, you should get this checked out.
After having passed out 2x and having heart arrythmias, I would feel worried too. It is a normal reaction.
Your neuro doc sure will want your heart checked out too.
Good luck. ...Read more

My MRI report shows a disc protrusion with pressure t6t7 nero didn't mention it even though I went to him with symptoms of bilat intercostal neuralgia?

Did the doctor look: At the actual images or report or both. The doctor, if looking at the actual images and also evaluating you, is in a better position to assess you than if just relying on a report. The other question is did the doctor review anything at the time of your visit? You should call the doctor to clarify the report's findings. The doctor can give you an explanation to you about the report. ...Read more

Nero found lesions on my mri. Said I probably have ms. Tomorrow I'm having a cystoscopy for blood in urine. Are MS and bladder problems linked.

Yes but: MS can cause bladder problems:either problem with emptying (bladder muscle contracts poorly)or problem with storage (small amount of urine cause bladder to contract, so urination is frequent).Blood in urine is unrelated to MS. Wish you well. ...Read more

Appt in mo. For rheumatologist as pos ANA 3 mos ago, muscles weaker, drop things, very strng knee reflx, maybe mixed connective tissue disease, ra, sjogren memory bad, bro w ms. Nero? E.R.? 6 kids, xmas

Need a diagnosis: Lupus and sjogren's can mimic neurological effects of ms, and muscle weakness could be consistent with a myopathy, and perhaps you do have "mixed connective tissue" process. But vigorous leg reflexes, memory issues, and brother's history raises concern about ms. Would definitely start with the rheumatologist, and maybe get MRI of brain if needed. If lesions, then work with neurology. ...Read more

Nero doc thinks malnutrition is causing loss of sence of hunger & decline in vision MRI EEG EMG bloodwork all normal only left arm leg face tingle to?

Strange: It sounds like your doctor has ruled out most immediately dangerous disorders. If malnutrition is truly causing this it might be worth searching for which vitamin is deficient. Most importantly, why are you malnourished? You should look for medical and psychiatric explanations if you don't know already. You are also on several medications which might have these side effects. ...Read more

Yes: If your baby seems to be asking for more food they probably do need more. Babies know when they are hungry and unlike adults do not tend to overeat.
