What is Multiple Sclerosis (MS)?

Multiple sclerosis (MS) disease in which the immune system attacks parts of the brain and spinal cord. The direct cause of MS remains unknown, but certain risk factors have been identified such as low vitamin D levels, tobacco smoking, exposure to UV radiation, childhood obesity, and infection with the virus that causes mononucleosis. The disease tends to affect young people more commonly as well as people living in higher latitudes. MS typically occurs in "attacks" which can include but are not limited to painful eye movements, blurry vision in one eye, numbness or weakness in hands or feet on one side, or double vision.

Typical Symptoms of Multiple Sclerosis (MS)

  • Diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis in the past

  • Numbness or abnormal sensation over my face

  • Weakness on one side of the body

  • Double vision

  • Pain across the entire body

  • Hands and legs became clumsy - I cannot do fine work with them

  • Concentration is getting worse

  • Feeling of imbalance

Doctor's Diagnostic Questionson Multiple Sclerosis (MS)

Your doctor may ask these questions to check for this disease:

  • Have you been diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis?

  • Do you feel anything unusual on your face?

  • Do you see double?

  • Do you have body-wide pain?

  • Are you having trouble concentrating lately?

Treatmentof Multiple Sclerosis (MS)

Treatment of MS includes medications, physical/occupational therapy, lifestyle changes, and psychological support. Some medications prevent immune system attacks on the central nervous system, whereas others speed up recovery from attacks, or others reduce MS symptoms such as urinary problems or imbalanced walking. Physical therapy accelerates recovery from attacks and Lifestyle changes like quitting smoking can help reduce risk of further attacks.
