How to diagnose MS?
The diagnosis of multiple sclerosis is usually made as a result of clinical symptoms and a neurological examination. There is no one laboratory test which the clinician can use to make a firm diagnosis. However, in two-thirds of the cases of multiple sclerosis, an elevated gamma globulin is noted in the spinal fluid. Special proteins called oligoclonal bands are found in the spinal fluid of 80 percent of people with MS. Special studies looking at Igg production can be performed.

Electrical tests may indicate short-circuiting in the central nervous system. These are called evoked response tests because a response from the nervous system is evoked with a specific stimulus. The stimulus may be visual, auditory, or through stimulation of an arm or leg. If it takes the stimulus an unusually long time to reach the brain, a short-circuiting may be the cause.

Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) allows the brain to be seen without surgery. MRI is particularly sensitive to MS, thus it has become an important aid to diagnosis. It is important to realize that other processes can make an MRI abnormal, and that it can miss MS every now and then.

hotel w Warszawie
hotele w Warszawie to wielosc miejsc, gustow i standardu. Od ekskluzywnych, gdzie koszy czasem zwalaja z nog, do powszechnych jednogwiazdkowych. Legendarne sa jednak ostatnio te hotele, ktore maja w swojej ofercie to, czego innym zabraklo. Teraz mozna spotkac na przyklad pensjonaty z rozwinietym SPA, czy silowniami, basenem, paroma lokalami gastronomicznymi. W takim pensjonaty z pewnoscia nie zbraknie dla was atrakcji. hotele Warszawa to rowniez lokalizacje, gdzie nie zaplacimy drogo, badz standard bedzie nieco nizszy. Jednak, gdy zalezy wam przede wszystkim na noclegu powinno sie wytypowac ten niedrogi. W niedrogich hotelach tez skosztujemy sniadanie oraz serdecznie spedzimy czas. Wszystko dla tego, ze jest obszerna konkurencja tez nikt nie moze sobie pozwolic na kiepska renome punktu. Dlatego pensjonaty przeganiaja w coraz to nowych pomyslach, jak przyciagnac goscia hotel Warszawa.

RE: How to diagnose MS?
An accurate diagnosis of multiple sclerosis is based on your medical history and a neurological exam (an exam of the function of the brain and spinal cord) using various tests. A lot depends on the skill of the doctor in asking the right questions to uncover information and to properly evaluate the signs and symptoms of a malfunctioning brain or spinal cord.

In addition to a thorough medical history and exam, a variety of specialized procedures are helpful -- although not always necessary -- to accurately diagnose MS. These include imaging techniques, such as MRI, spinal taps or lumbar punctures (examination of the cerebrospinal fluid that runs through the spinal column), evoked potentials (electrical tests to help determine if MS has affected a person's nerve pathways), and lab analysis of blood samples.
What Are the Accepted Criteria for a Diagnosis of Multiple Sclerosis?

Multiple sclerosis usually begins between 20 and 50 years of age
Symptoms and signs indicating disease of the brain or spinal cord
Evidence of two or more lesions -- or abnormal areas on the brain -- from a MRI scan
Objective evidence of disease of the brain or spinal cord on doctor's exam
Two or more episodes lasting at least 24 hours and occurring at least one month apart
No other explanation for the symptoms
