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

MS Dx- how to make: The best way to make a diagnosis of MS is to be interviewed and examined by a neurologist, then undergo tests of MRI and spinal tap, if needed. It is hard to do this on telemedicine. In general, to see how the diagnosis of MS is made, try this informational web link http://www.neurocuro.com/how-do-you-know-if-you-have-ms/ ...Read more

What if an MRI doesn't find MS but you have all the symptoms of ms?

What if an MRI doesn't find MS but you have all the symptoms of ms?

Suggestions: Your question is very timely. Some pts have MRI lesions visible only over the spinal cord. In the first year, spinal fluid may best confirm the diagnosis, if MRI equivocal, but sometimes followup images show diagnostic changes. Although your description is very c/w ms, you might instead have lupus, vitamin deficiency, lyme disease, other infections, sjogren's, etc. Might consider 2nd opinion. ...Read more

What to do if I have all the symptoms of ms.but I don't have lesion on the brain.what could it be?

Advice: Some cases of MS have lesions in spinal cord only, and not in brain, early on. MRI of neck might help. Spinal fluid testing might also be of value. But since many other disorders, such as Lyme disease, lupus, or Sjogren's might mimic MS, make sure testing has been done for other entities. ...Read more

For the past 12 mths I've been told I have the symptoms of MS from friends but I've had MRI and that's it! Dc says no. Help me?

Sorry to disappoint: ...your friends but I would say that the most credible evidence and referee in this case has spoken and said that on the basis of your MRI you DO NOT HAVE MS. And as you said, "That's It." Having said that I would only make this suggestion, if the C-spine has not bee looked then, get that done with MRI (with contrast). By the way, what ARE your symptoms and have they been getting worse over time? ...Read more
