Multiple sclerosis also known as MS is a devastating condition where the body’s own immune system slowly eats away at the sheath which is protective and covers the nerves. This hinders the communication between the rest of the body and the brain. Eventually, this will cause wear and tear of the nerves which is a problem that is not reversible.
There are a wide variety of symptoms, dependent on the total damage and which nerves are affected. Individuals with relentless cases of MS can lose the capacity to speak or walk. MS may be extremely difficult to make a diagnosis especially earlier in the disease as the symptoms come and go – often disappearing for months.
MS can develop at any age, but is more often begun in individuals between the ages of 20 years of age and 40 years of age. Females are more prone to develop MS than males.
Symptoms and signs of MS are varied and depend on the location of the affected nerve. The symptoms and signs can include:
- Weakness or numbness in 1 or more limbs, typically occurring on 1 side of the body at a time or the bottom half of the body.
- Complete or partial loss of vision, normally in 1 eye at a time, often accompanied with pain with eye movement.
- Blurring of vision or double vision
- Pain or tingling in parts of the body
- Sensations of electric-shock which occurs with some head movements.
Many individuals with MS, usually in the first stages of the disease, have relapses of symptoms, which are followed with periods of partial or total remission. Symptoms and signs of MS usually are worsened or triggered by a body temperature increase.
