New Health Page -differential Diagnosis

We have kicked around the differential diagnosis problems facing neurologists when looking at cases of possible MS.  Repeatedly we hear how many options are out  there for our symptoms.  

there is a great website - http://www.diagnosispro.com   that allows you to put in a symptom and it calls up all sorts of possibilities. This site is intended for medical personnel to help narrow choices.   For example, if you type in VERTIGO you get a list of 20 related possibilites.  Be sure to check out this great website.

The link for our new health page explaining the differential diagnosis problem facing neurologists can be accessed at:


I hope you will let me know if you find glaring errors or omission in this HP.

best, Lulu

It's a fancy phrase for "we know something the average person doesn't!"  LOL

punctiform parenchymal enhancement

here are some links to papers that include the topic


I believe it is also listed in the MRI atlas of MS lesions - which can be downloaded through this link/

The diagnostic path can be so torturous - but at least you can see some of what the doctors are considering.  If you are inclined, be sure to read the entire cited paper.  There is tons of good stuff in there.
