Vacuolar Myelopathy
Hi, I have a question regarding my long term partner.  He has had a cd-4 count which seems to bounce between 150-225 for the past six years.  His legs have been giving him issues for the past couple of months.  He has done some research and found that it could be either nueropathy or vauolar myelopathy.  I have read that the prognosis for VM is bleak, 6-12 months from the time symptoms appear.  However, he has had issues with his legs in the past.  His brother passed away from MS.  I have read up on the symtoms of VM and they seem to be fairly generic to me, meaning that they could fit 30% of the US population.  The two that stood out that he does not have are incontinence and impotence.  My question is this:  if he had VM would the condition progress so severely over a two or three month span that it would be quite noticeable that something was wrong.  He still is able to walk and works a very part-time job as a janitor.

Tell him he needs to discuss it with his ID doctor.
