Multiple Sclerosis - Symptom, Treatment And Causes

What is Multiple Sclerosis?

Multiple sclerosis is a disease that affects the central nervous system namely the spinal cord and the brain. It has the potential to disable a person.If a person has multiple sclerosis, the immune system goes on the offense against myelin the sheath that protects nerve fibers. This results in problems in communication between the brain and the rest of the body. In course of time, the disease causes deterioration of the nerves. The nerves may also get damaged forever.The cure for multiple sclerosis still eludes medical science. But, treatment is available that hastens the recovery of patients from attacks, keep the symptoms within manageable limits and modify how the disease plays out in the patient’s life.

Causes of Multiple Sclerosis

Like its cure, the cause of multiple sclerosis is yet to be determined. It is an autoimmune disease in which the myelin comes under threat from the body’s own immune system. Myelin is analogous to a coat of insulation on wires that conduct electricity. Myelin damage results in nerves vulnerable to damage and dysfunction.The exact reason why multiple sclerosis develop in some while others are spared of the ordeal is not clear. Scientists suspect a combination of genes and the environment to be the culprit behind the disease.

Risk Factors of Multiple Sclerosis

  • Age- though multiple sclerosis has been found to occur in people of all ages those between 16-60 are particularly vulnerable.
  • Gender- Women are two times more likely to be affected by the disease than men.
  • Genetics- If a sibling or a parent has multiple sclerosis the risks of developing the disease are higher.
  • Medical Conditions- Certain infectious viruses have been found to have links with multiple sclerosis. Some autoimmune diseases like type 1 diabetes, thyroid or inflammatory bowel disease increase the risk of having the disease.
  • Race of a person- White individuals particularly those who have descended from Northern Europe have the highest risks of having the disease. African, Asian and native Americans are least likely to develop the disease.
  • Climate- A temperate climate encourages the development of the disease.
  • Smoking- Smokers are more prone to relapse-remitting multiple sclerosis.

Complications

People with multiple sclerosis are at risk of developing the following complications:

type diabetes
Treatable by medical professional Require medical diagnosis Lab test sometimes required Chronic: can last for years or be lifelong Non communicable
Symptoms
Weakness and numbness on one or both the limbs Complete or partial loss of vision Continuous double vision Pain on the whole body Tingling sensation on the body Slurred speech Fatigue

Multiple Sclerosis - Know Its Effects!

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.

Role Of Physiotherapy In Multiple Sclerosis!

What is Multiple Sclerosis?
Multiple sclerosis is a neurological condition and is caused by damage to myelin, which protects the nerve fibres of the central nervous system.

Symptoms

  1. Fatigue
  2. Depression
  3. Cognitive problems
  4. Loss of sight and mobility
  5. Double vision
  6. Blindness in one eye
  7. Muscle weakness
  8. Trouble with sensation
  9. Trouble with coordination

How Can Physiotherapy Help You?
Physiotherapy can help in cases of multiple sclerosis by providing:

  1. Physical independence
  2. Flexibility
  3. Strength
  4. Fitness
  5. Increased chances of staying in employment
  6. Improved general health and quality of life

Ways of Therapy for Multiple Sclerosis
1. Improve posture

  • By putting the right muscle in the right place and at the right time to help it work efficiently.
  • This is required for balancing, walking, and improving arm and hand function.

2. Improve Balance

  • Multiple sclerosis can alter the way in which a person moves, making him/her feel as if he/she is more likely to fall.
  • Neurological physiotherapy helps rebuild poor balance.

3. Improve Walking

  • Walking is affected because of general or specific muscle weakness.
  • The general weakness can be addressed by exercises.
  • In specific weakness, the treatment is likely to be more specialized with rehabilitation technology.
  • The most common treatment method for a drop foot or a floppy foot is with functional electrical stimulation (FES).

4. Improve Spasticity

  • Muscle spasms, pain, or stiffness in the muscles are experienced by these patients.
  • The physiotherapist can help reduce the problems associated with this type of altered muscle function and leg weakness.
  • The therapy involves stretches to help you maintain mobility and prevent muscle spasms. It also includes training on how to use mobility aids like a cane, walker, or a wheelchair.
  • For rehabilitation exercises, splints or orthoses are used.

5. Improve Fatigue

  • Fatigue is a symptom of multiple sclerosis; however, people also get fatigued because of the extra effort they have to invest in all their activities.
  • Neurological physiotherapy will work with you to help you manage the fatigue so you can save your energy for the good stuff.

During a relapse

  1. A relapse — also called a flare or exacerbation — is a period of time when symptoms of multiple sclerosis are more frequent or severe.
  2. During this period, you may have greater difficulty with everyday tasks that include working, cooking, walking, or bathing.

Progressive multiple sclerosis

  1. If you have primary progressive multiple sclerosis, you don’t experience relapses. Instead, your disease is on a gradual, constant decline.
  2. For advanced multiple sclerosis
    • People with advanced multiple sclerosis have severe multiple sclerosis symptoms.
    • People with advanced multiple sclerosis are non-ambulatory.
    • It means they cannot walk or get around without help from another person or a motorized device. Also, people at this stage have an increased risk of developing other health conditions such as osteoporosis or epilepsy.

Anorgasmia - Causes + Symptoms

What is anorgasmia?
The reduced ability to orgasm or the inability to orgasm post sufficient stimulation is called anorgasmia. This disorder is quite common in women. In fact, most women cannot orgasm with vaginal stimulation alone. Some require clitoral stimulation by rubbing or oral sex.

What are the types of anorgasmia?

  1. Generalized anorgasmia: Orgasms are not achieved with any partner, be it in any situation
  2. Lifelong anorgasmia: No orgasms have ever been felt
  3. Acquired anorgasmia: You have climaxed before but due to certain factors, be it emotional or physical, you have stopped getting orgasms
  4. Situational anorgasmia: Here you may have been able to orgasm before but only in certain positions or a particular partner.

What may cause anorgasmia?
Orgasms can be complex things. It involves the combination of physical, emotional and psychological factors. Anorgasmia can occur if any of the above is affected.

Physical causes

  1. Medical illnesses: Diseases such as diabetes or multiple sclerosis can result in anorgasmia.
  2. Medications: Medicines, for example, antidepressants, anti- histamines, cardio-vascular agents can meddle with climaxes.
  3. Smoking and Alcohol: Excessive alcohol consumption can mess with the ability to peak; smoking constraints the blood vessels, thus having a similar impact on both the sexes.
  4. Gynaecologic issues: Surgeries such as hysterectomy or surgeries of carcinoma can hamper with the capacity to accomplish climaxes.

Mental Causes:

  1. Poor self-perception
  2. Embarrassment
  3. Anxiety or dejection
  4. Financial issues and stress
  5. Fear of STDs (sexually transmitted diseases) or pregnancy
  6. Past passionate or sexual mishandle

Relationship issues

  1. Fights or clashes in the relationship
  2. No fascination toward the partner
  3. Lack of association
  4. Infidelity
  5. Poor association with partner in regards to sexual needs

What are the symptoms of anorgasmia?
The symptom of anorgasmia is the inability to achieve orgasms in spite of sufficient sexual stimulation. It could be because of your partner or because of the position that does not really hit your spot. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a sexologist.

Tests and Treatments for Multiple Miscarriages

I am doctor Mohan Routh, a practicing Gynecologist for last 27 years and partner of ICPRN Indias 1st Immuno therapy center for treatment of patients with repeated miscarriages and ivf or implantation failure.

Today I am going to discuss about various investigations that will help us to find out what is the cause in repeated cases of miscarriage. Now depending on different causes there are different investigations. When the problem is genetic there are test known as karyotype of the pregnancy which is aborted. It is same for the karyotype checkup that is the chromosomal pattern of the pregnancy is checked. Also karyotype or the chromosomal pattern of the parents are checked to find out if there is any genetic problem. For structural problem of the uterus there are tests like sonography, especially 3d sonography.

Then test like hysterosalpingogram which is an xray test, then procedures like laparoscopy and hysteroscopy which helps us to find out if there is any structural problem in the uterus. For detecting endocrine problems test for diabetes like fasting and post lunch blood sugar HBA1C, for thyroid problems T3 T4 TSH, for polycystic overine disease the fsch and lh level and sonography help us to clinge the diagnosis. For infections there are a series of test, known as torch titer. In this investigations are done for toxoplasma, rubella, cytomegalo virus, herpis etc and it helps us in the diagnosis of infections. For the auto immune problems there are different tests which include anti-nuclear anti bodies, ss dna test , antiphospholipid anti bodies, lupas anti coagulant, protein c and s, so these are the various tests which tells us about the auto immune problem.

Now if all these tests are normal then the factor that is responsible is allo-immune factor. For that we do certain more tests when all the tests so far are normal. And these tests are lymphocyte crossmatch, levels of natural killer cells in the peripheral blood and in the endometrium. A chemical called tnf alpha which is produced by the lymphocytes in the blood. So these tests help us to do diagnosis of allo-immune problems. Once the diagnosis is achieved the treatment can be given accordingly depending upon the positive tests. For allo-immune problem the treatment is immune-therapy or lymphocyte immunization therapy which is an active form of immune therapy which helps to get over this problem.

For more about lymphocyte immunization therapy I will talk in my next video. For more information you can contact me on www.lybrate.com Thank you!

Knowing Erectile Dysfunction PART 1: Don't Get Carried Away by Misconceptions
Knowing Erectile Dysfunction. Part 1: Don't Get Carried Away By Misconceptions

What is Erectile Dysfunction (ED)?

A person having erectile dysfunction (ED) is not able to achieve and/or maintain an erection of the penis sufficient for sexual activity. So, penis do not get hard at all or not enough for doing sex.

ED is responsible for great deal of stress and anxiety as well as low self-confidence in men. Mostly its occasional, when you cannot get an erection and it is only temporary. Normally after emotional or physical stimulation there is an increased filling of blood in sponge like tissue of penis and decreased blood flow out of penis, so blood remain trapped in penis and it becomes hard and erect.

Your ability to have erection is dependent of multiple factors like our emotions, hormones, nerves, blood vessels and cells of penis itself. A problem with any of these elements can cause ed. It can occur at any age, but becomes more common with increasing age. In the older adult male, it is a major problem affecting more than 75% of men.

Common Causes of ED

Physical causes indicate you have problems with penile structure itself or any bodily disease affecting it. Diseases include less blood flow to the penis or injury of the nerves going to the penis (for example, multiple sclerosis, a stroke, parkinson's disease, spinal injury etc.).

Lifestyle disorders like high blood pressure (bp), obesity (high body weight than normal for our height and age), diabetes (high blood sugar).

Also lack of male sexual hormone called testosterone, alcohol and drug abuse, clogged blood vessels (atherosclerosis) and side effects of some medications causes ed. Sometimes psychological issues like anxiety, stress due to work or home environment, depression, relationship difficulties leads to ed.

Myths Associated with ED

Myth 1: ED is part and parcel of your body's aging process

Contrary to popular belief, ED is not a normal part of the aging process. If you're having difficulty in getting an erection, the underlying cause can be medical in nature such as undiagnosed or diagnosed cardiovascular disease, high blood pressure or diabetes.

Myth 2: ED can't be reversed

Through the right treatment and certain lifestyle changes, most of the cases of ED can be reversed to almost normal. It is said that sexual health and erectile performance can be enhanced when you improve the health of your heart. Exercising to bring about weight loss and quitting smoking are ways that experts advocate for improving the health of your heart.

Myth 3: You are the only person to suffer from this problem

The common belief that ed affects only a few men is not true. Scientific studies show that ed strikes about 5% of men aged 40 years and between 15-25% of men aged 65 years.

Myth 4: It's completely in your head

This isn't true at all. The source of the problem could be certain parts of your body. In most cases, the cause is usually certain physiological problems such as heart disease, clogged arteries, high cholesterol, and parkinson's diseases etc

Myth 5: Only drugs and surgery can help you remove the problem

ED can be treated using a number of treatment options. Apart from pills and surgery, simple lifestyle changes can help to provide respite from the problem. Decreasing the consumption of alcohol, losing weight and even quitting smoking can improve your sexual health. Moreover, since the problem can also be due to an underlying medical condition such as high blood pressure; treating the underlying cause can help in easing your erection problems.

Gynecomastia (Enlarged Male Breast)
I am Dr. Rajesh, associate professor in the Department of plastic surgery in Deccan Medical College, also consulting plastic surgery various hospitals in Hydrabad. Today we are going to discuss about one of the most common complaints which I come across in my daily routine practice, that is gynecomastia.

Gynecomastia is a condition of non cancerous growth of the male breast. These conditions generally observed in infants and adults age and old age. The condition is observed in about 1 million population of India. In infants. this condition arises mainly due to the abnormality in the hormones. That is, the male hormones which are supposed to be increased and the female hormones which are supposed be decreased by their abnormal ratio. There is a change in the ratio of the hormones, then this condition is used to observe the mothers womb from the glass filter, that is, some of the hormones are injected to the child. So that's why we usually see there is a minor swelling of the childr's breasts this is called physiological.

Physiological normally occurs in most of the children and it's a common condition. Since something which is not common is non physiological, which is an abnormality. The next physiological condition where you see is in adult age and children are developing the male secondary sexual character. That time the male hormones which are supposed to be increase, when they are not increased and the female hormones which are supposed to get reduced . At that time, there is a change in the ratio game again you will see gynecomastia usually around 10 or 11 or 12 years of age. This will subside usually and 1 or 2 years of age and the next condition is again in the later age that is in the old age. There the testosterone hormones in the body comes down in the male then again you may see these are all these are physiological other.

Causes in the adults are mostly with the drugs are chronic. Diseases associated will be liver or kidney. Like liver in a sense of chronic sclerosis of the liver also where in the hormone which is supposed to get deleted is also one of the reason we're in developer gynecomastia and in a chronic renal problems with is undergo adolescence is also this. We can see all this kind of problem and there are very rare conditions like in a Klinefelter syndrome. There are some syndromes and some cancers are also associated with this condition but there are extremely very rare conditions. Where you see a gynecomastia syndrome for them, the evaluation is different to manage. There is long prove of medical management for this, like the drugs will not treat the cause. There are some drugs which are not even FDA approved but there are some drugs where we can give especially the adult causes but not for the physiological causes.

Physiological causes as I mentioned earlier after certain time or age they should subside and the body becomes normal like any other person but if it still doesn't subside then the option would be surgical. We do a lipo a small hole is made at the little side of the breast through that we suck out the fat if there is any fat. We suck out the fat and only the glandular tissue is delineated and then through a small incision in the area like nothing. But that pigmented skin around the nipple makes a small incision trhough which we take out the gland. That is most commonly followed treatment throughout the world and it has very great results.

for more information, you can contact me directly in my clinic that is Dr. Chandra Semalty Speciality clinic.
