What are the dangers, if any, of taking cycles or "gear" for bodybuilding if that person had multiple sclerosis? I'm just curious.
Not simple: Bodily temperature elevation, from vigorous exercise, may result in a pseudo exacerbation, with amplification of prior symptoms which can reverse with cooling. But exercise is of value for ms patients, just needs to be paced. Also, depending upon the patients debility, exercise should be designed to prevent harm secondary to weakness, or imbalance/incoordination. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Need chronically: Some advice, there are pills available, but where you live, might be tough to get. Nonetheless, do not miss your injections, and add Vitamin D-3 about 5000-10000 units per day. We do not have a clear idea when to stop the MS meds, and in those older patients who I have stopped, a few have had relapses. Stay tuned, drugs to be used differently are on the horizon. (even Lemtrada) ...Read more

Painless leg problem: I'm a bit confused. You state "No multiple Sclerosis!" but in your Clinical Findings: Conditions, you list "Multiple sclerosis". You also didn't describe where you're having painless difficulty bending your leg: hip? knee? ankle?

I have multiple sclerosis & the symptoms of diabetes are so similar how do I know if i'm a diabetic? My dr. Refers everything to multiple sclerosis.
Easy: The test for diabetes is simple - it is just a blood test. It is important not to attribute everything you experience to ms. However, it is possible your doctor has already done some additional testing and has ruled-out diabetes. Many patients are not aware of all the tests that are run when they go to the lab and have blood drawn. Just ask your doctor. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
My wife is 37 and has multiple sclerosis. She wants to get pregnant but i'm afraid that stopping her medication will do her harm. Is it safe?
Multiple sclerosis: It is a concern. Removing certain medications can increase the relapse rate immediately after stopping the medication (immune reconstitution syndrome). This is not seen with the older "platform" therapies. Copaxone (glatiramer) is category b for pregnancy. Nevertheless, all my patients have opted to stay off medication during their pregnancies. 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
