Am 54 year old female of mixed ethnicity bornand raised in Long Island, NY. No history of chronic illness except have been falling entire life, strange symptoms mainly while in college and all symptoms treated for years. Was hospitalized at age 7 with a kidney infection . Fell in 2010, without cause, CT to check for brain bleed finds dymelinating process. Prior to fall, severe pain, tingling , burning mostly right leg, and strength diminished while walking and hydro plane to a fall. Do break walking. Especially acute after sitting in one position for over 20 minutes. Neurologist is connecting dots, has whole history, 2010 and recent MRI s with or without contract of Brain, Thoraxci area and spine . No legions on spine but are in brain in central location but are without change so he is thinking maybe, Chronic Microvascular Ischemic disease although have nodular appearance which is rare with with this diease. Doc is going to do EMG of right leg, spinal tap. QUESTION! Could I have both; MS and CMIC??
