Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS)

May ALS (Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis) be considered an Aids Symptom?

ALS and HIV/AIDS are nothing alike and your question is based on a false premise. Neither ALS or HIV/AIDS is an autoimmune disease. Autoimmune refers to an organisms failure to recognize one of its own constituent parts. ALS is a neurodegenerative disorder that destroys the motor neurons that control voluntary muscle movement.HIV is a retrovirus that attacks the immune system but that does not make it an auto-immune disease ALS does not destroy the immune system like HIV.

Anxiety or Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis?

Even though your anxiety is feeling better, it can take weeks to months for the full effects of anxiety to be felt physically. The tics and problems you are having are most likely anxiety related. I have the same problems, and it just happens that the more I think about weird physical problems, the worse they get. Then the anxiety comes back. It’s definitely a cycle, and if you let the anxiety get to you, in another few months, you will probably have a different set of physical problems. Anxiety is a long battle, and even if you’ve found the correct drug/therapy combination, it could still take up to six months to feel better physically. If you haven’t spoken with a doctor about medicines and therapies yet, I would definitely recommend doing that soon, so you can begin to get better.

can kids get Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis?

No. ALS, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis or Lou Gehrig’s disease, is an adult disease. It develops between the ages of 40 and 70, with most people being in their 50s when affected.Please see a doctor to find out about your muscle twitching. It could simply be a deficiency (potassium) or tics. The cause of tics is unknown but is thought to be stress. Tics usually go away on their own in time, which can range from a few weeks to several months. Tics are common in children and teens but usually not present in adulthood.Please see a doctor to be on the safe side.

Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis?

Who Gets ALS. ALS is a disorder that affects the function of nerves and muscles. Based on U.S. population studies, a little over 5,600 people in the U.S. are diagnosed with ALS each year. (That’s 15 new cases a day.) It is estimated that as many as 30,000 Americans have the disease at any given time. According to the ALS CARE Database, 60% of the people with ALS in the Database are men and 93% of patients in the Database are Caucasian.Most people who develop ALS are between the ages of 40 and 70, with an average age of 55 at the time of diagnosis. However, cases of the disease do occur in persons in their twenties and thirties. Generally though, ALS occurs in greater percentages as men and women grow older. ALS is 20% more common in men than in women. However with increasing age, the incidence of ALS is more equal between men and women.There are several research studies – past and present – investigating possible risk factors that may be associate with ALS. More work is needed to conclusively determine what genetics and/or environment factors contribute to developing ALS. In 90% of patients there is no family member with the disease.Half of all people affected with ALS live at least three or more years after diagnosis. Twenty percent live five years or more; up to ten percent will live more than ten years.There is some evidence that people with ALS are living longer, at least partially due to clinical management interventions, riluzole (RilutekA®) and possibly other compounds and drugs under investigation..

Are Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS)?

Yes, or course research scientists are working hard to discover effective treatments, and eventually, to find a cure for ALS.A lot of the cutting edge work is being conducted at the Robert Packard Center at the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine in Baltimore, the only center specifically devoted to research into ALS. You’ll find their informative website (including links to many of the most recent scientific and medical studies) at the link that I’ve posted below.As for your question about Stephen Hawking – though Hawking is perhaps the most famous person afflicted with ALS, medicine is not his specialty or his training. Hawking is a physicist, and therefore not particularly prepared to research motor neuron disease. As you’re probably also aware, the progression of the disease in Dr. Hawking has now left him almost completely paralyzed. I hope that you find the Packard Center site to be informative. It’s written in a pretty straightforward and non-expert style that should answer a lot of your questions.

How do the following diseases kill you or cause death?

Toxic epidermal necrolysis, osteosarcoma, gangrene, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, ischaemic heart disease, sarcoidosis, emphysema, gastroenteritis, renal calculi, huntington’s disease, and tay-sachs.

How long has Stephen Hawking had Lou Gehrig’s disease?

He needed a wheelchair starting back in the mid sixties. He started to notice the effects when he was in his late teens or early twenties. Before he knew he was sick he didn’t take things too seriously. He spent most of his early years in the pub. He would to a semesters worth of physic work the morning before it was do and still do better than teams of his colleagues who had spent everyday for months working on the same problems. When he realized he was sick he started to apply himself more.

Can I donate blood? Can I donate my eggs?

My grandmother died from Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS). Alot of my family members have died from it. My mother doesnt seem tp have it and she is 36 years old. she looks clean and my 30 year old aunt doesnt either. I want to donate blood but I dont want run into this problem in the clinic.

Ans : Yes u can donate blood

what does this mean. what do i look for?

(Determine the national and/or international incidence of the illness Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis ALS)

It is asking you to cite the number of occurrences of ALS in the nation or around the world. ALS is also known as Lou Gehrig’s disease.

where can I find the karyotypes of Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis? I already did, but I can’t find anything

Try WebMD.

im so so freaked out!..pls help pls?

i wouldnt get freaked out the disease he had is very rare. your calf cramps can be explained by you being in basketball. using them frequently with playing and weightlifting. nasal congestion is a way of life for some people and being congested just means that your body is trying to filter out more air that your breathing in. relax im sure that all this is coincidence

Is CHEST PAIN an INDICATION of…..???

The first thing I assumed because of you age and symptoms was the presence of GERD. I would not go as far to assume it to be Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis, relax. Are you taking medications for your GERD (Protonix, Nexium, Prilosec?) If you aren’t your GERD needs to be managed with any of the above mentioned. Prilosec does not need a prescription so it can be found in your local drug store.You should also have tums (calcium carbonate handy) to chew when you get such symptoms. Last and most important you must modify what you eat and how you behave. Chocolate, tomatoe sauce, caffeine, peppermint, greasy foods, overeating, tight clothing, laying down immedicately after eating) are all factors that cause it.SO although many things cause CHEST PAIN, lets start with the most obvious and see if it is the cause.

How much drool has Stephen Hawkings produced since sadly contracting Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis? How much drool has Stephen Hawkings produced since sadly contracting Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis.I think he’s a great man and have read a brief history of time and loved it but now I’m trying to settle a personal debate?
