Hello,

Sclerosis of the femoral head is different from multiple sclerosis.
Multiple sclerosis is a neurological disorder wherein the white matter of neurons is damaged.
You need to consult your orthopedician for clinical assessment, investigations and thus management.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Shailja Puri, Pathologist and Microbiologist

I was diagnosed with ms when I was in the hospital back March 2011. I m 36 female. My episode lasted 4 days. double vision could not drive, ran into things missed things when I grabbed them. Now I ve followed up with my neurologists and now he is saying he is not sure if I have ms or not. He stated the the lumbar puntures (2) didn t show but mri did. He ordered a second mri and he told me there were a few new lesions but nothing to be concerned about....well I decided to get the mri report from the hospital afterward to compare with the first..and WOW It states 2x that there is a highly concern for ms and not a few new lesions..but numerous ones...Some are stable, some are new and some are larger. What else does he need to tell me I do?!!! Well, he already said I did...then states he doesn t know and contradicts the report I am frustrated. Thank you Heather

I have many of the symptoms early MS including eye pain and something is going on with the optic nerve and blood vessels bursting in my eyes every now and then. Eye specialist can t seem to figure out what it is. Also some nerve damage in left lower extremity. A recent MRI without contrast indicated spinal stenosis. I m scheduled for a surgical consult soon. Could this possibly be MS? Are there any MS specialist in the Washington DC area?
