MRI: Not sure which MRI you are talking about. Is it of the brain, abdomen, chest? You should understand that MRI or ct scans are just "shadow" of your body organs. When we interpret we do come across atypical findings that baffle us. All radiological interpretations should be correlated with clinical findings to arrive at a reasonable diagnosis. ...Read more

With continuous exercise and proper nutrition to treat the daily threats of hypoglycaemia, is this condition curable not just a treatable daily chore?

With continuous exercise and proper nutrition to treat the daily threats of hypoglycaemia, is this condition curable not just a treatable daily chore?

Daily chore..: Sorry to say, but reactive hypoglycemia, which is typically what we experience, is not curable.

Evaluation by doctor: I can't know for sure but it doesn't sound as if you have a neurological problem such as would occur in a patient with stroke or brain trauma but it certainly wouldn't hurt for a neurologist to examine you.

On memory tests I score well above average. I have difficulty learning new words though. Is there any disorder which specifically affects vocab memory?

It may, therefore, be difficult for a person whose neuropsychological function in short-term, active-working & long-term memory is intact. A neuropsychological exam can define the area of impairment. ...Read more

Can visual disturbances, like things moving that are inanimate, be another symptom of MS that my gp is trying to diagnose? I haven't mentioned it yet

Can visual disturbances, like things moving that are inanimate, be another symptom of MS that my gp is trying to diagnose?  I haven't mentioned it yet

Advice: If there is any question of MS, see a neurologist, as this is not the domain of a primary care physician. The perception of moving objects may represent a problem within the vestibular system, but could also be a sign of PALINOPSIA, due to a focal brain lesion. Ask for a referral to a neurologist. ...Read more
