Partial Sclerosis Of Mastoid Air Cell
What do you advise if I'm having sclerosis mastoids. And I'm having little hearing problem. Is there any solution for this problem?
Hearing loss: The best place to start is with an audio gram and a physical examination by a board certified otolaryngologist. ...Read more
What organelles are affected in a patient with multiple sclerosis and how are they malfunctioning within the cell?
Try several sites:
In general, this is a disease of the myelin coverings of nerves within the central nervous system. We do find autoimmune reactions mediated by activated white cells which cross the brain/blood barrier to attack brain and spinal cord. There may be additional problems involving astrocytic and microglial functions. See more information at Mayo Clinic and Johns Hopkins websites, Wikepedia,

A research study: Actually, no such terminology has been introduced yet, since we are in very early stages of examining the potential of stem cells to treat ms patients. Some of this is being done in europe, and expect more in the future. Outcomes unclear currently, but stay tuned. ...Read more
Not available: The Closest approach to stem cell, so far, is bone marrow transplant, which has significant risk, and may be only minimally successful. The Best approach in the relapsing-remitting phase, such drugs as Gilenya and tysabri (natalizumab). Some usage in chronic phases of rituxamab, but risks there as well. Stem cell applications still a long way off. Sorry. ...Read more
Do you have successful experience treating lichen sclerosis? I recently read about treating with stem cell lift method. Is this done in dallas?
Not yet: Stay tuned, research is ongoing. Who knows? ...Read more
Only in research: We are in the infancy of this approach, but a few medical centers are looking at this and if interested, contact a nearby medical school or the national institutes of health. ...Read more
Help me interpret vulvar biopsy. Focal squamous atypia. Ki-67 shows mild increase cell proliferation focal vin can't be excluded. Lichen sclerosis?
Nothing serious yet: This report suggests slightly abnormal changes (atypia & increased cell proliferation) which can be a reaction to irritation but there is no definitive evidence of precancerous change (VIN). In short there is nothing to worry about right now unless you are concerned and you'd like a second opinion ...Read more

I have Multiple Sclerosis and I wake up choking and grasping for air. I have choking episodes all day (at work, while driving, etc). I am afraid to eat.
Several points: You may have a sleep disorder, such as sleep apnea, but a better explanation might be sinusitis or GERD. Would urge you to visit internist and undergo full examination. Would also get your neurologist into the loop, as regardless of course of the above, you need a potent disease modifying agent for your MS. It is very unusual for MS to affect breathing or cause intermittent choking. ...Read more
What happens if you suffer from mesial temporal sclerosis and complex partial seizures, can you haev a normal life?
I suffer from a congenital fusion of L3 L4 anteriorly & partial fusion with bony sclerosis in L4 L5 & mild retrograde listhesis of L5 s1 as well...

What % of high grade differentiated VIN2 returns after bilateral partial vulvectomy with clear margins? Using clob and Estrace (estradiol) for lichen sclerosis
Very small risk: Almost none, but please get regular checks as advised by your oncologist ...Read more
Simple partial seizure vs. Panic attack vs. Pseudoseizure? I have tuberous sclerosis & my dr goes back/forth btwn them as diagnosis. I'm frustrated!
Assessment.: Do you have both a psychiatrist and a neurologist? It would probably be important to be evaluated by both type of specialists and for them to collaborate. Take care. ...Read more
Partial opacification of the bilateral mastoid air cells, middle ear, ethmoid air
Inflammation: May be due to allergy, a viral or bacterial infection or its residual. Need more history to better define. Speak to your doctor who ordered the test and get an understanding of what was being looked for. ...Read more
Why are "family doctors" answering multiple sclerosis questions?! I have spotted inaccurate info being given. Only a neuro answer? 'S
Part of a team: Your family doctor is usually the doc who makes the referrals and is often the one who helps treat complications, such as urinary tract infections, fatigue, associated injuries, medication reactions, and he/she keeps open the communication lines between different specialties. Coordination of medical care is critcal these days. ...Read more
ABNORMAL THICKENING: Of the mitral valve with associated mitral valve prolapse. It's calcium buildup in the valve, stated simply. It might have been triggered by rheumatic fever or any other condition that would make the valve structurally abnormal. This condition is usually progressive and surgery may be necessary down the road. Close follow up is also important. ...Read more
Autoimmune condition: It is a condition where your own immune system attacks the sheaths (myelin) which covers your nerve fibers. Common symptoms include weakness in muscles due to slow/ damaged nerve conduction. Lowering Inflammation in your body via diet, stress reduction, anti-inflammatory supplements may delay, stabilize and improve the condition. ...Read more
No: Mesial temporal sclerosis is NOT a disease, but rather an anatomical asymmetry in the brain due to focal scarring and injury to one temporal lobe. This may promote a variety of epilepsies, which could be difficult to control, but if treated, this should not shorten your life. If untreated, there is risk of nocturnal SUDEP, which could be deadly, but that is indirect, not primary. ...Read more
No cure at this time: It is difficult to develop a cure when the cause of a condition is not fully understood. There seem to be several factors that contribute to the development of MS but there is no ONE gene or ONE virus that has been implicated as a direct cause. Rather, the interaction of genetic susceptibility and infectous and/or environmental factors seem to result in dysregulation of the immune system. ...Read more
Variation of ALS: Motor neuron disease or ALS presents in several variable forms, and is a disease of motor neuron degeneration in brain and spinal cord. In the primary lateral sclerosis variant (only 1-3% of all cases), the disorder affects the upper motor neuron only, and is focal on one side or the other. By definition, this form would be far less malignant. ...Read more
Detective Work: No one diagnostic study can stand alone to conclusively diagnose ms. A neurologist must be a detective, hunting out clues from symptoms suggesting abnormal function in the brain or spinal cord white matter, of appropriate duration (greater than 24 hours) coupled with abnormalities on examination. Mri, spinal fluid, and certain blood tests. This information can help exclude MS mimickers. ...Read more
