    Hello

    Hello everyone,
    My name is Shana I'm new to this group. I have Tm and I've had it for 7 months now... It was an acute onset I just woke up on day and 4hrs later I was paralized from my chest down. I'm 26 and I have two children a 1yr old girl and a 6yr old boy.. My son has been wonderful at ajusting to this I couldn't ask god for a better child.. I know in many ways I'am very blessed and I know I will over come this.. I have been researching TM since I've been out of the hospital and right now I'm trying to get IVIG treatment. I would love any advice or any info that any one can give me... expecially if anyone has had IVIG... I also want to thank Anty for telling me about this group Thanks again... Can't wait to hear from you...

    Hi Shana,
    I wrote the above message about my son.
    He received IVIG on the hospital early on because they thought he might have had guilian barre syndrome. I don't really know anything about it in regard to TM. What treatment /rehab have you had/ Have you had any recovery? Were ther ny lesions on you r MRI? There were none on my son's regular MRI and all other tests were negative. I hope yopu are having physical therapy. nancy
    you're in prayers tonight.

    HI ANTY,
    My son has had four MRIs but the third one was some kind of specialized one that was of only the the thorasic area inparticular T5/T6 and very small slices. Our pediatric nuero is from Columbisa University and New york Hospital as well as schneiders childrens hospital here on long island, He sent it all over Ny to other MDs. Still no conclusive answer from any one UNtill we went to see Dr. Kerr at Hopkins. He felt that based on that particular MRI that it was clear to him that Brian suffered a Fibrocartilagenous embolism to the spine. He said that it is often misdiagnosed as TM. the fourth MRI he had was a regular one and it was completely normal like the first two. No lesions were ever found. All other tests were negative. Take care, NAncy
