FAQ - paresis
(Powered by Yahoo! Answers)
Diagnosed with Gastro-paresis and Irritable Bowel Syndrome but treatments don't work. Why?
I continue having chronic abdominal pain and feel as if something is burning inside the stomach. It feels steamy inside the stomach. The burning sense is strong. I also had a hernia in the intestine last year and went through surgery. I see stones in stool, but gastro-enterologist ignores it whenever i say stones in stool. Tried every possible medication and remedy, but no relief. What to do?

Functional Paresis - what is it and what can cause it?
So basically, I'm looking to find out something that my consultant won't really explain to me.
What is functional paresis? And what on earth can cause it? Because this is really really starting to interfere in my life and I'm sick of being fobbed off or treated like it's in my head :/
A difficult one...
All doctors have encountered patients whose
symptoms they cannot explain. These individuals
frequently provoke despair and disillusionment.
Many doctors make a link between inexplicable
physical symptoms and assumed psychiatric illness.
An array of adjectives in medicine apply
to symptoms without established organic basis
– ‘supratentorial’, ‘psychosomatic’, ‘functional’ – and
these are sometimes used without reference to their
Conversion disorder symptoms may occur because of emotional distress or psychological problems.
Symptoms usually begin suddenly after a stressful experience. People are more at risk for a conversion disorder if they also have a medical illness, dissociative disorder, or personality disorder.
Some doctors falsely believe that conversion disorder and similar disorders are not real conditions, and may tell patients that the problem is "all in your head." However, these conditions are real. They cause distress and cannot be turned on and off at will. Research on the mind-body connection may eventually increase understanding of these disorders. (+ info
know anything about migraines and todd's paresis?
I have been getting strange migraines for a while. They kind of act like strokes. Half of my face even becomes droopy and paralized. I have seen a neurologist about it. He said they are migraines with neurological deficits. Another doctor said that it could be Todd's Paresis. Does anyone know anything about this?
Todd's palsy, also known as Todd's paralysis is a neurological condition characterized by a brief period of transient (temporary) paralysis following a seizure. The paralysis - which may be partial or complete - generally occurs on one side of the body and usually subsides completely within 48 hours. Todd's paralysis may also affect speech or vision. The cause is not known. Examination of an individual who is experiencing or who has just experienced Todd's paralysis may help physicians identify the origin of the seizure. It is important to distinguish the condition from a stroke, which requires different treatment. It was named after Robert Todd, who described this in 1856.
Treatment of Todd's paralysis is symptomatic and supportive because the paralysis disappears quickly.
An occurrence of Todd's paralysis indicates that a seizure has occurred. The prognosis for the patient depends upon the effects of the seizure, not the occurrence of the paralysis. (+ info

what is plasma paresis?
what is being done in the hospital to a family member.
I think you might mean plasmapheresis. Below is an excerpt at wikipedia. You can find out more at the link.
Plasmapheresis is the removal of (components of) blood plasma from the circulation. It is used as a therapy in particular diseases, and it is also a method by which blood donors donate only plasma, with remaining red cells and platelets returned to their circulatory systems, allowing up to twice weekly plasma donations.

Does anybody know what paresis is?
I found only one definition, but can't find anything that would be similar to it on the Internet, it gives me something totally different.
Here's what I need it to be similar to:
General paresis is a disorder characterized primarily by impaired mental function caused by damage to the brain from untreated syphilis.
Can anybody find a URL that would elaborate on that. I found that Paresis sort of paralyzes your limbs, on the Internet, but it has nothing to do with "mental disorders", so I guess that's not it. Whoever, finds an elaboration about that definition, if I could, I would have kissed you :).
You might have more luck if you look up hemiparesis. (+ info
