PCOS Lady: I was prompted to post MS symptoms since some overlap Lupus and PCOS … Doctors are misdiagnosing all three, causing conditions to possibly progress worse at times!
~ Symptoms matter! Your symptom history plays a huge roll with diagnosing!
~ Read info in all the sites, each has abit more…
~ Montel Williams has MS…

MS
~
Multiple sclerosis has a probability of affecting 2-150 women out of every 100000. MS, attacks the central nervous system, wherein the immune system starts damaging nerve covering in the brain. The disease usually starts appearing in young adults with a varied level of symptoms. It impacts each individual differently. It is seldom fatal, but in most cases causes disability.
~
One of the most common symptoms of MS in women is the difficulty with vision. One can face blurry eyesight, double vision, blindness in one or both eyes, involuntary movement of the eyes, etc.
~
Early Signs of MS
~
~ balance,m walking and dizziness
~ bladder
~ bowel
~ eyes and sight
~ fatigue
~ memory and thinking
~ mental health
~ pain
~ sexual problems
~ spasms and stiffness
~ speech
~ swallowing
~ tremor
~
Causes and Triggers
~
Muscles are involved in every movement you make. They get longer and shorter to move and hold the body.
If MS causes nerve damage that affects muscle movements, they can cause a range of problems.
~
Recognizing Trigger Factors
~
Investigating potential trigger factors that cause or make your spasms or stiffness worse is a vital step in finding solutions. If identified and addressed, these may reduce or relieve the problem.
~
For example, something as simple as loosening tight clothing might provide some relief.
~
The following are some of the more common trigger factors that you and your doctor or MS nurse might consider:
~
~ an increase in your body temperature (perhaps because of a fever or exercise)
~ infections (for example, bladder or chest infections)
~ if you are experiencing a relapse
~ skin irritation (including pressure sores)
~ a full bladder
~ constipation, causing a full bowel
~ overly tight strapping or clothes
~ a fractured bone (perhaps caused by a fall)
~ problems with posture
~ emotional stress
~
Only a neurologist can diagnose MS…

Lupus: Mimics PCOS, MS

Lupus
By Mayo Clinic staff
~
Lupus is a chronic inflammatory disease that occurs when your body’s immune system attacks your own tissues and organs. Inflammation caused by lupus can affect many different body systems — including your joints, skin, kidneys, blood cells, brain, heart and lungs.
~
Lupus can be difficult to diagnose because its signs and symptoms often mimic those of other ailments. The most distinctive sign of lupus — a facial rash that resembles the wings of a butterfly unfolding across both cheeks — occurs in many but not all cases of lupus.
~
The most common signs and symptoms include:
~
~ Fatigue and fever
~ Joint pain, stiffness and swelling
~ *Butterfly-shaped rash on the face that covers the cheeks and bridge of the nose
~ Skin lesions that appear or worsen with sun exposure
~ Fingers and toes that turn white or blue when exposed to cold or during stressful periods (Raynaud’s phenomenon)
~ Shortness of breath
~ Chest pain
~ Dry eyes
~ Headaches, confusion, memory loss
~
When to see a doctor
See your doctor if you develop an unexplained rash, ongoing fever, persistent aching or fatigue.
