MS Symptoms can be mild or severe. Mild MS Symptoms will often show up as minor flare ups of your neurological system. If you have a loved one with MS then chances are that you have MS Symptoms. Your family doctor should be able to tell you if you have mild, moderate or severe MS Symptoms.
MS Symptoms such as loss of motor coordination and balance also known as neurocognitive problems can occur on their own or can be aggravated by environmental factors. For example, stress or sitting in one spot for long periods of time can aggravate your neurological condition. A neurologist can run a neurological test called Electroencephalography (EEG) to look at MS Symptoms. An example of this test is called the MSG or Automated Neurofeedback.
Another way to tell if you have MS Symptoms is by testing your eyesight. If you have decreased your ability to recognize colors or your vision becomes blurry and your eyes become irritated when you look at bright lights then you could have an issue with myelin which affects your vision. You should contact your neurologist if your eyesight worsens and you see decreased colors or glare when looking at bright light.
One of the more common symptoms of MS is called Spasticity. Spasticity is when a muscle becomes excessively active or tight. This usually happens when someone has to sit down for prolonged periods of time, which causes the muscles in the legs to relax. Another way that spasticity can affect a person is when they experience memory loss or they find it difficult to focus on one activity for longer than a few seconds. In these situations healthcare professionals often refer to it as "sluggish".
Another of the MS symptoms is called Regression. Regression is when your visual perception (the ability to see) slows down and starts to shift back to when it was normal. When this first signs of MS appear the eyes often become dry and the vision can become fuzzy vision occurs.
When it comes to MS symptoms, there are a variety of other things that can trigger a relapse. Spinal degeneration is one such thing. When the spinal cord becomes damaged it can weaken the integrity of the nerve along with the other parts of the central nervous system and the results are MS symptoms such as numbness and tingling sensations. Damage to the brain, called a stroke can also trigger a relapse. In addition to affecting the central nervous system a stroke can also damage the muscles, which then affects your balance. All three of these factors can lead to difficulty walking, changing gait, having difficulty talking and additional difficulties with performing daily tasks such as picking up objects.
In addition to these initial MS symptoms that occur in the first phases of the disease as a secondary symptom can develop and show itself later on. There are several symptoms that are part of relapsing MS and each can have different impacts on a person's ability to function. Some MS symptoms will be very mild, while others may be quite severe. MS secondary symptoms include muscle weakness, which can result in bladder and bowel incontinence. These types of issues can make it very difficult to hold on to basic tasks such as picking up objects or holding a fork.
MS symptoms can vary in occurrence and severity. The actual onset of the disease can also vary from person to person. For some people a relapse can happen at any point in their lives and for others it may only happen one time. The best way to understand your own MS symptoms is to get an appointment with your doctor so that he or she can run a series of tests to find out more about your condition. A treatment plan can then be developed to treat the various symptoms that are associated with relapsing multiple sclerosis.
