    Default Stiff Person Syndrome masquerading as MS

    http://www.jns-journal.com/article/S...16)30768-7/pdf

    I have MS and SPS. But my attacks have been disseminated in space and time. Brain lesions are consistent with MS.

    Nonetheless, I will definitely discuss this with my neurologist soon.

    Hello!

    I found the right url and pasted it in Sunshine's first post. It should work now.

    It's really easy to put someone on ignore and it's strongly recommended that you do so with people whose posts you don't like.

    Step 1 - log in
    Step 2 - click on the "settings" link
    Step 3 - click on the "edit ignore list" link on the left side of the screen
    Step 4 - type (or paste if you copied and pasted it) the username of the person you want to ignore
    Step 5 - click the "ok" button on the right of the screen

    One important note though, this won't hide quoted posts. It's an oversight on the developers part and it's not an easy thing to "fix." So if someone quotes someone you have ignored, you'll see the quote.

    Alternatively when you click on a person's name and view their profile page, underneath their avatar, there is a option that says, "Ignore this person". Click that link and then click the yes button.

    Essentially, it’s several case histories on patients dx’d with MS for years, but actually had SPS.

    The brain had lesions but not the type usually seen in MS. And the patients had no history of the time and space criteria.

    Maybe other people's screens are showing something different but when I go to that link, in the lower right there's a big + sign, and clicking on it magnifies the print. If you keep clicking, it keeps magnifying.

    Hello everyone!

    Agate is right. On some screens, there are places where you can magnify the size of the print to make it as large as you want. Look around for a + (plus) sign in the corners and around the top and bottom of the screen. This will usually indicate a text magnifier. Most pdf. documents have zoom features.

    On my screen, at the very top of the page right in the middle above the text, there are the words "Automatic Zoom". To the left of that are - (minus) and + (plus) characters. If you click on the plus it will make the text larger. Keep clicking on the plus sign until the text is readable for you.

    Here's a screen shot of the "Automatic Zoom" feature on the article:

    I guess it's true that the "MS" category is often the dumping ground when the doctors don't know what to call it.

    I didn't open the link as it appears to be a pdf and they can contain viruses now. Unfortunately, my tablet opens them automatically. Moderator, a little forewarning, please, of a download would be helpful if you're going to go into people's threads and alter them!

    Sunshine, please let us know what your doctor says about this!
