Ah! Possibly the wrong spelling...
CADASIL? I wrote CADISL as it was dictated to me.
Sounds bad. I hope the test is negative...
I prefer MS. I can deal with that.
I googeled the second spelling and that isn't too good. Maybe just a false positive ?!?!?! Good luck
I haven't had the test yet. Just a hunch on their part. They said they expected it to come up negative, sooo....
But my dad died of just those kinds of strokes, though later in life, and it IS genetic.
No point in worrying about it now.
You got to think.....
Positive ED to get negative results. I sure hope your tests come back negative. Maybe you spelled it wrong again.
Time will tell...
You know, the more I learn about it the less it seems to me, (not a Doctor of course) to be what I have. The symptoms don't match mine at all. My symptoms are the classic symptoms of MS. So that will be my positive thought.
Hard to say...
it sort of creeps up on you. The first indication was about eleven or twelve years ago, but I was "officially" diagnosed about five years ago (not consulting records; it could be six or more).
Hope everything will come out OK
I don't know what else to say other than think positive and hope for the best.
p.s. I will consult with some of my doctor friends to get more information.
Thanks. Not as worried as I was an hour ago...
The initial freakout is the worst. I'm expecting the best now.
Isn't life interesting?
Life is full of surprises
but we can do without those related to (bad)health!
On another note, I got this from a website: ''A Scottish study suggested the prevalence of CADASIL in that population was about 2 in every 100,000 adults. Worldwide, approximately 400 families have been described with this disorder.''
The odds are in your favor.
That's what I thought last week when my wife was
Were you happy or sad?
(NT) I only want 1 child
Are they uncertain of your diagnosis?
I remember when my daughter's liver condition was not yet pinned down. They would rule out one nasty possibility only to come up with something worse. The final diagnosis found a structural abnormality which, so far, means drinking some cholesterol reducing medication several times a day.
I hope for the best outcome in your case.
I thought they were certain....
but MS is tricky because it presents in so many different, ways. It's not really well-defined as a disease.
There is SO much that medical science just does not know.
It's a new one on me ...
From what I've read I doubt it is closely related to MS but I can't be sure.
I hope you get some sort of good news out of this.
Thanks. I'm staring to think this a CYA action...
like, "just in case."
Not too worried.
