Customer reply replied 4 months ago
My mother has Multiple sclerosis, and thyroid disease. I have extreme fatigue, hot flashes, no appetite, and trouble sleeping. I work a lot so I figure I was just tired from work but it became too much. I weighed 170 lbs. a year ago, and now I am down to 130. I lost weight very rapidly. At one point I was 118lbs, but recently was able to put on a little more weight. I don't exercise as often as I should, but I got to the gym about once or twice a week.

Thanks for this reply

there is not one condition that is known that causes growths in multiple areas like this

I can tell you from experience some patients just tend to do this. That is, grow lesions everywhere

I suspect that one day medicine will identify a disorder but right now we dont' have one

I sincerely ***** ***** I have helped you, and that I have earned my 5 star rating today.

Please remember to rate my service by selecting the 5 stars at the top of the screen ( rating me now does not close your question).

We can continue here until you are satisfied, simply use the reply box and let me know. Thank you!

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
