- MS?? Epilepsy?? Vitamin D and B12 deficiency. Changes on MRI scan.?
- Q: I've tried to look it up. My sister has been having episodes of double vision frequently. Sometimes nausea accompanies them. She will have a splitting headache with vomiting for hours. She will have periods of deja vu and be unable to speak or move. These symptoms will last 45 sec. to 3 minutes. Afterward she slowly recovers and the recovery can take up to an hour until she feels completely normal. She has also had pains in her arms. I have noticed things about her too. Sometimes I'll mention things like Hurricane Katrina and the flooding of New Orleans, and she won't know what I'm talking about. I'm sorry but you have to have lived under a rock not to at least know what I was talking about. (Our oldest sister was diagnosed with epilepsy. She also has MTHFR and factor v leiden, and terrible trouble with blood clots.) My sister went to the doctor for her complaints. The doctor said she is severely deficient in vitamin D. He said she was low in B12 too. He said her MRI scan of her brain (with contrast) showed an abnormal part in her brain. She isn't as good with medical term as I, and I haven't seen the report, so I will tell you as much as I gleaned from her phone call. The doctor said it was in a lower part of the lobe, and it was near the brain stem. I'm sorry I'm not much clearer, but she couldn't pronounce the words.She lived in Maine for 40 years. I know the rate of MS is higher in the northern latitudes. She now lives in Florida. No she doesn't like milk, and she doesn't sunbathe, but with the strong sunshine you would think just by accident she would get the vitamin D she needs.The doctor has sent her to a neurologist. She is waiting for the appt. The doctor said it could be MS, but he wasn't sure.Would MS symptoms be that quick? I know there are good and bad days, but I would never have thought MS because of the length of time of her "spells" with her inability to talk/move, and how fast she seems to recover. She does have double vision almost all the time. Sometimes she will feel fine for weeks, and then have headaches for months on end. She went to previous doctors but they blew her off. Has anybody had symptoms such as these? By the way, she is 41, and these symptoms started about 7 years ago. They have been increasing in frequency. She recently had a baby about 1 year ago.Any feedback, suggestions, are appreciated!
- A: I wouldn't ignore the recommendation to supplement vitamin D and B12. They can give her a shot of B12 that would be better than any pill. They have 5000 units of D3 at the health food store. She should start both right away. If you research the benefits of vitamin D, you'll find it helps almost everything.
- Why do some people believe that the handicap are nothing more than a burden and should be terminated?
- Q: Apologies for this long post, but after I saw one poster's suggestion that we all should kill people with varying degrees of disability, I was just...stunned!I have to say something in my defense on this issue and I just want those people to see what I have to go through being handicapped--so they will know that it's not an easy thing.I was born a preemie with cerebral palsy; weighed in at 2 pounds 8 ounces. When I as a teenager, I diagnosed with a bi-polar disorder and ADD/ADHD. In the past 8 years? It's COPD, Vitamin D Deficiency Syndrome, Recurrent Calcium Stone Disease, Factor Five Leiden, an optic nerve degeneration disorder, and sleep apnea--among other things.My entire life from the get go was nothing but hardships, challenges, and failure.I didn't just stand by and let the world roll me over a good one. I eventually stood up for myself, I fought the good fight, and made something of my life--even though I still suffer from failing health. (Not as bad as Dennis Hopper's though.)And while I may not be a *major* contributor to our all important capitalist system of free market principles, I still have some value and importance in people's lives.Just not in terms of material wealth and money.But no matter how different we are born, or are saddled with either physical or mental problems, it doesn't mean that we should just be cast aside or want to see those afflicted killed out of social ignorance--because some people see people like me as a "burden", or fail to understand just what it is that makes people like myself wholly dependent on medical and government assistance.I just wish these same types would walk in my shoes for a day and see what I have to go through just to survive.What's it is like to have to use inhalers--because you can't breathe normally--or have to take blood-thinners because you have a malfunctioning clotting factor, or any of the other types of medications which regulates your high blood pressure, asthma, depression, and keeps the nerve sheaths in both eyes from disintegrating prematurely. (Though this will lead to eventual blindness--for now, I am lucky to still have my sight.)And to top it all off? A half dozen or more doctor appointments to deal with all these issues:Having to run all over town to get poked, prodded, scanned and blood drawn on time, or wired up like a guinea pig for a sleep study, x-rayed like crazy, BP checked on a monthly, vitals checked to make sure I'm still alive, weight checked to see if I've lost any more weight, and twice a year laser lithotripsy procedure for kidney stones--so the doctor in question can stick a stent up inside and give me all those wonderful pain pills afterward--leaving me without worries or fear. The pain, the suffering, *everything* that I have to go through. It's because I don't have many other choices.And it's no picnic neither.But even through all this, I keep going with a sense of humor because it's easier to look at my problems through a different window and realize how lucky I am to be cared for by so many people, than just be negative about my situation and blame others for things clearly out of my control.I couldn't been born normally like my two brothers, but I wasn't.And that's what makes me so special.Thoughts?
