My brother who is now 14 years was diagnosed to have mulitple seclerosis, he was having the complaints as you have. He had memory loss, he was unable to walk properly. Docot asked him to get his eye also check up since he told that the multiple sclerosis affects eye also. He also told that there is no cure for this

eye problems are common in multiple sclerosis patients, is the problem progressing further or is it resolved with the medicines, I think the steroids are given to your brother.

Hmm, it is a neurological disease. Go for regular follow ups. Get a CT scan to confirm it

My mother in law has MS. She has been forgetting things and mistaking what we tell her for about a year now. Would it be ok for me to contact her Neuro and let him know before her next appt. I do not want her to know that I contacted him. She gets upset when I talk about it and denies it. I want her to get help but I don t want to start a family feud over it

Recent questions on  Memory loss

Last year an object fell from the ceiling hitting the front top of my head and both eyes. I blacked out for about a minute. I received a cut on my left eyebrow, lose of memory, headaches, slurred speech, agitation, headaches, sensitivity to loud noises, when I walked or drove in the car my head would spin, and I had raccoon eyes. Dr diagnosed me with post concussion syndrome. It s been a year and I m still have memory loss, when I get tired slurred speech, headaches, loud noises cause my head to hurt and the black eyes come back. What would be causing these symptoms?

Hi,

I am 28yrs old, VSD was detected in my heart during my childhood, however doctors suggested to wait and see if it closes by itself, however when 27 the symptoms grew and the Hole in Heart lead to dilation and slight rupture of Sinus of valsalva, I ended up having an open heart invasive surgery. Surgery treatment included closure of VSD as well as RSOV

I was told there was imbalance pressure at my left and right half of heart, and pressure difference was roughly 20 or 30 mmHg more than should have been for a normal heart, meaning one side(right) of heart was handling more pressure by 20mmHg than should have while the other half(left) was handling pressure by 20mmHg lesser than should have, and also there was mixing of oxygenated and de-oxygenated blood.

I have not gained weight even after surgery(surgical treatment done when i was 27yrs old)

My questions are:
1. What is my life expectancy? Have my life expectancy decreased by now than compared to what it would have been if I would have been normal from my birth, is there a maximum cap on the number of years I can live now?

I did try asking above question to my cardio surgeon but he did not provide a clear answer, just mentioned that I am normal now and would not have any problems

2. Before surgery I was told that the reason I had long hands and underweight was due to the defect VSD, due to the pumping of the heart at wrong pressures and causing different pressure values at arteries and veins, So my question is would I really some back to normal after the surgery? would my heart not have been adjusted to the earlier pressures(i would imagine the structure of heart to be adopted since the defect was from birth), so rectifying RSOV alone would have been sufficient and that closure of VSD wouldnt have adverse effect on my body as well as heart?

3. Since lesser percentage of oxygenated blood was circulating through my system including my brain all these years, would I have any issues like memory loss or underdeveloped brain, attributed due to that?

4. Would I be prone to any of the heart diseases in future or and related diseases like high/low Blood Pressure?

Please respond to my queries asap.

Thanks,
Murali
