I have two of them. I was told it doesn't look like demyelineating disease, but I still feel nervous. Is anyone here familiar with how often these lesions are associated with MS?
I have been complaining of forgetfulness and trouble finding words for the last two years. At first I thought it was my medication but now I'm calling it 'brain fog' because I have Crohn's and possibly Lupus. I don't think I have many other MS symptoms, perhaps tingling.
My neurologist was not helpful at all... I have severe migraines and she told me that it's totally normal! Well TO ME, it's NOT normal to have dead spots on my brain... Will I get more, how do I stop them? Am I going to get dumber? I want to be a professor, I can't get dumber! My neuro mentioned something about ischemia and migraines stopping bloodflow to my brain. Crap?
Thanks for your help.
Crohn's (diagnosed in 2006 and currently in remission), severe migraines, Seborrheic Derm., Hemolytic Uremic Syndrome (1994), chronic pain, ulcers/GERD and possibly Lupus. Medications: Nexium, Pentasa, Percocet and Vicodin as needed, Flintstone Vitamins (my favorite part!), calcium and magnesium supplements, vitamin D once weekly. I follow a low fiber, low residue diet.
