Alzheimer's is a degenerative brain condition which is the leading cause of dementia
in the world. The condition leads to progressive loss of cognitive function. There is no cure for Alzheimer's disease Multiple sclerosis
is a chronic autoimmune disease affecting the white matter of the brain and spinal cord. It causes waxing and waning neurological symptoms and is characterized by typical white matter lesions on brain scans. On the other hand, Alzheimer's does not have any particular specific findings on brain scans. Given the presence of multiple new multiple sclerosis lesions on your brain scans, it is highly likely that the memory and other new symptoms you are experiencing are related to your multiple sclerosis and not to also having Alzheimer's disease at the same time. As always the diagnosis and the management of your particular condition will require a physical examination by your personal physician. Setting up an office visit with your neurologist
to discuss your concerns is strongly recommended.
