Yes, twitches can be a symptom of MS, but it can also be caused by excessive caffeine or stress. I get eye twitches from time to time, too, but they go and quickly as they come. Ten days seems like a long time. If it is really bothersome, you might give your neuro a call.
Your concerns are well-founded; if your docs aren't investigating your symptoms to your satisfaction, you might consider seeking a second opinion from another doctor. Contact your local chapter of the National Multiple Sclerosis Society for a list of neurologists/MS specialists in your area. Hope you can get your issues addressed soon. Do let us know what you find out
I'm so sorry for the loss of both your grandmothers. Grief can put a terrific strain on our already fragile health and take us by surprise. It might be a good idea to seek out some counseling, someone that can help you build some coping skills. And remember to check in at MS patient forums like this one, it helps to talk through what's happening and have it validated and witnessed by someone that is not family.
You might contact your local chapter of the National Multiple Sclerosis Society to check out their patient hotline service, as well as inquire about a list of therapists in your area that might have experience counseling disabled clients.
Please keep in touch and let us know how you're getting on. We want you to be well and happy. Please tell us how we can help
Hi, we know that people with MS are prone to having seizures. Multiple Sclerosis can be the primary cause of these seizures, or the medicines we take for MS can cause seizures as a side effect. Seizures are treatable. Consult your doctor.
Your symptom doesn't really sound MS-related. If it is interfering with your quality of life and you're worried about it, urge your doc to investigate further and emphasize that it is very distracting. I suppose it is possible that you have broken blood vessels in that area and your overly-excitable nerves are misfiring and sending pain signals. I have permanent patches of pain in one thigh that feels like a deep bruise when touched, but there is no discoloration, it looks normal. My doc and I decided it's neuropathic pain. Try talking to your doc again, or get a second opinion if that is going nowhere.
Do you have an MS diagnosis? I'm not sure of the context of your question and how it relates to MS.
In my own experience questioning my dentist about implants, I think the major determining factor is whether you have enough healthy bone in your jaw to support an implant, since the implant itself serves as a "root" for the new crown. It is a decision made with the input of your dentist and a review of your unique circumstances.
