What are some oral manifestations of Kaposi's Sarcoma and where can I get photos of this disease?
I am doing a research paper on this subject and have not been able to find some oral manifestations or photos thus far. Any ideas?
involvement of the oral cavity is seen after that of the extremities and face. the oral lesions are same as cutaneous nodules i.e. they appear as reddish or brownish red nodules which may vary in size from a few mm to a cm or more in diameter. cervical lymph node and salivary gland involvement commonly precedes cutaneous and visceral involvement in African children.
u may refer to textbook of Oral Pathology(Shafer), PubMed, http://www.hivdent.org/slides/ (for pictures).. (+ info

Physical? I can just relate when I'm depressed and I feel tired and weak. Fatigue would be the only physical symptom I can describe. (+ info

Can acute knee pain have a neurologic origin?
My doctors are at a loss. The latest to date (a psychiatrist) suggested I see a neurologist. But does it really make sense, given the intensity of the pain? I can hardy remain sitting on a chair for more than 10 mn... There's back pain too, but to a lesser extent.
So plaese tell me if the nerves can be responsible, how they diagnoe that, and are there efficient treatments?
Thanks for your help.
Yes, any pain (joint or otherwise) can potentially have a neurological origin. In fact, a large percentage do.
If you have, for example, a pinched nerve in your back, you may actually experience the pain in your knee. It all depends upon which nerve is involved.
Treatment will depend upon the cause of the nerve pain. That treatment could be anything from simple chiropractic exercises all the way through to major surgery.
Go to the doctor assuming that it is something minor. It almost always is. But GO to the doctor. Permanent nerve damage can result if you fail to get treatment. (+ info

How can you suppress the physical manifestations of anxiety?
eg. shaking and impaired movement, sweating, appetite loss, inability to smile convincingly, fidgeting etc
Assuming the anxiety itself can't be removed, can these symptoms at least be avoided?
Edit: Without medication. I'm just talking about when there's a particularly stressful event coming up, like giving a speech or something.
Glad you asked. There is sooo much you can do to wipe out your anxiety - completely. Did you know a lot of the way you feel is connected to what you eat? I had anxiety issues and when I stopped eating white sugar, good-bye anxiety. Who would have thought there would be a connection like that? I also lowered (but did not eliminate) my caffeine intake. I have not been bothered by anxiety now for over six months. So yes, you can ELIMINATE anxiety from your life.
Also, what you eat just before you go to bed at night can influence the anxiety thing you exprience the next morning, so be mindful what you eat before retiring. Who would have thought there could be a connection like that? But there is. Our systems are sensitive and we do not process nor digest food well while we are sleeping, so go easy after eight o'clock at night. Yes, that too is connected to eliminating anxiety from your life.
It is no one thing you do. It is a combination of things which you put in place that knocks that anxiety cycle right out of your life for good.
There is still more you can do to control what anxiety you may still be feeling. Keep a little log of how it plays out each time. When I used to have the cycle of anxiety, I would immediately grab a piece of scrap paper and on it, note the time and level of severity from one to ten (being the worst). I would then make note of how I was feeling in five-minute increments. The reason this helps to eliminate your anxiety sessions or cycles is because by making a record of when and how much you are feeling anxious, you are placing yourself in the position of observer instead of participant. You would not think this would work, but it not only works to knock out anxiety issues, but as you are using it, it makes the sessions shorter and shorter until your subconscious mind has gotten the message that you just aren't going to participate any more. OBSERVING your anxiety is not the same as going through it each time. It sends a strong message to your brain that you are refusing to participate in being anxious anymore. That little log you keep when upset eventually eliminates the need for keeping it. It also eliminates the anxiety.
If you are skeptical about what I have written, I completely understand that. But I also know that feeling anxious is directly connected to not feeling safe. The minute you feel safe again, this permits you to regain control of the situation you find yourself in, and the reason you were feeling anxiety in the first place is because you had momentarily lost control of the situation. It is said the quickest way to find the "off switch" everyone is hunting for when he is upset (anxious) is first (1) place yourself in a safe environment and (2) regain control of the situation and therfore of yourself in the situation. The quicker you regain control of the situation, the quicker your anxiety will be gone.
The reason we feel anxious is because safety is missing and we are not in control. What is it we are all looking for while anxious? We are looking for a safe person and we are looking for a safe place. What a study of anxiety and all of its foolishness shows us is that YOU that safe place and that YOU are that safe person. You can be both of those things to yourself. That is the whole secret to unlocking the power anxiety seems to have over us sometimes. It is like taking back your personal power again, and it feels wonderful when you can begin to feel it working.
I hope my answer helps you regain a sense of inner strength while documenting your feelings, and by making personal observations of your own behaviour and modifying your diet a little to calm down your nervous system and blood sugar level, you will soon be able to put all this anxious business behind you, once and for all.

What does manifestations mean?
I have to do research on a disease called Huntington disease, and my rubric says to talk about the manifestations of the disease. Does this just mean the signs and symptoms of the disease, this is what i saw on other questions on yahoo answers. I just wanted to make sure that this is right because some dictionary websites said the clear appearance of the disease.
Yes, both "manifestations" and "signs & symptoms" mean the same.
The American Heritage® Medical Dictionary defines "manifestation" as An indication of the existence, reality, or presence of something, especially an illness.
Signs and symptoms indicate the presence of a disease. Basically, Signs are what the doc sees and Symptoms are what the patient complains of.
Definition of Sign - an indication of the existence of something; any objective evidence of a disease, i.e., such evidence as is perceptible to the examining physician, as opposed to the subjective sensations (symptoms) of the patient.
Definition of Symptom- any subjective evidence of disease or of a patient's condition, i.e., such evidence as perceived by the patient; a change in a patient's condition indicative of some bodily or mental state. (+ info
What other neurologic disorders are there that can mimick the symptoms of Multiple Sclerosis?
My mom has had back surgery, two knee replacements, foot surgery. She did not follow up on rehab at all after her 2nd knee, does not exercise. She has left-sided inflamation head to toe, including the optic nerve. Urinary and bowel incontinence. This has been going on for years. Her eye Dr. said there was bleeding in the eye that has lost vision. I see similaritites with MS but the loss of vision was that last symptom and what I have researched says it's typically the first. She also has a bulging disc on L5. Is it possible that long term nerve damage and spinal cord compression can cause the same symptoms as MS?
This sounds like a hodge-podge of symptoms, rather than a complete condition. It's entirely possible that spinal cord compression and long-term nerve damage could result in similar symptoms as MS, especially incontinence. Does she have peripheral neuropathy? Numbness and tingling in her extremities? How old is your mom? MS typically strikes people in the prime of life. Generally speaking, people older than 50 are thought to be out of risk for MS. If your mom is over 50 and she had MS, it would've been very, very advanced by now, and I imagine she would've been showing symptoms in her 30s and 40s.
I agree with the person who said that this sounds more like diabetes. Especially if your mother is either overweight, 60+ or both.
Good luck. (+ info
