Multiple Sclerosis - Sign And Symptoms To Watch Out For!

Multiple Sclerosis or MS is an ailment that is mainly caused due to the degeneration of nerves in the body. The central nervous system is the main area affected by multiple sclerosis and it has been diagnosed that it occurs more in women than men. The main areas that are affected include optic nerves, brain, and spinal cord. Multiple sclerosis in other words also means scar tissues in multiple areas. There are 4 types of multiple sclerosis which include clinically isolated syndrome, relapse remitting, primary progressive, and secondary progressive.

Causes of Multiple Sclerosis

  1. Multiple sclerosis is regarded as an autoimmune disorder and its exact cause is not known by the doctors. The disease causes demyelination of the brain cells and spinal cord.
  2. People in the age group of 15-60 are the ones affected by this disease. According to scientists, the four main factors that cause this disease are virus, genetic, environmental and immunological.
  3. It is a long-lasting disease that causes disturbances in the body functions.
  4. The condition is examined by the doctors by checking the patient’s medical history, conducting neurological exams, and imaging scans.
  5. The spinal fluid analysis is also a procedure that can rule out the possibility of multiple sclerosis.

Symptoms Caused by Multiple Sclerosis

  • Some of the symptoms that are caused due to this disease include impaired coordination, pain, vision loss, and fatigue.
  • The nerves in our body are coated with myelin sheath that protects the nerves.
  • The myelin sheath also aids in the conduction of impulses all through the body.
  • Inflammation is caused due to multiple sclerosis which eventually results in thinning and destroying of the sheath.
  • The nerve without a coating is left with a scratch and this results in the nerve not functioning properly.
  • Severe chronic symptoms are faced by patients so at times pain occurs in the eyes and back. In some patients the symptoms are mild thus the disease is not noticed in the early stages.
  • The main symptoms include problems with thinking, memory, muscle weakness, numbness, and tingling. Many people even find trouble in walking due to multiple sclerosis.

Effects of Multiple Sclerosis

For more information on the disease and its causes, you must visit a medical practitioner near you.

Hello, Thanks to Lybrate, It helps in spreading awareness about Homeopathy. I don't know if you are aware about major systemic side effects of antidepressant. Homeopathy is practiced over 250 years, science is based on food habits, sleep, and sexual behaviour. Please write in private msg for treatment and more details. As homeopathic medicine are proved on healthy human being, it does not have side effects. Your complaints suggestive of stress can be cured with one month treatment.

My mother suddenly got seizure her age is 60 y, the doctor advised rest and given eption tabs, sodium and potassium levels are lower than desired level, the ct scan and eeg reports also normal, why this happen suddenly to my mom, please help me in this regard.

Dear seizure can occur at any age but also it can have many reasons. From your statement it seems that low sodium might be a cause. Low potassium does not cause seizure. However please upload all test results for a proper diagnosis and then a management plan.

Ayurveda is very helpful in case of migraine. Shirshuladi vajra ras. Kaparda bhasm. Godanti bhasm. These are the medicines to cure it. Cow ghee 1-1 drop in both nostrils at night time before sleep.

You have to treat the whole patient and not the headache alone There are several reversible causes for headache which needs to be excluded first Take a. Consult if you do not want to reverse headache by natural methods without medicines by sending feedback with name and phone number triggers for headache are different in different persons .once you identify the trigger and treat it your headache will go away do not blindly believe your drs. They have vested interests to see you take lifelong medicines. You have to take personal responsibility of your health and not your drs. You may be having a side effect to Inderal .It is difficult to say without a detailed history taking Get educated and never medicated and take a consult.
