MS Symptoms are not always recognized by people with MS. Some of these symptoms are: difficulty seeing clearly, severe headaches, weakness or numbness in the hands, arm or legs. Sometimes sensations can be so strong that it is painful. Some people who have MS describe these symptoms as including a "pins and needles" sensation, fatigue, loss of appetite, short or long-term memory problems and difficulty concentrating.
MS symptoms can vary in intensity and in frequency. They may be lessened or completely absent. Some of these symptoms can even come and go or change over time. They can either be mild or much more serious. If they are more intense or less frequent than expected, that could mean a more serious type of MS.
MS affects the body's neurological system. When this part of the brain is affected it can result in a wide range of multiple sclerosis symptoms, including fatigue. This fatigue occurs as a result of decreased circulation to the areas of the body that are experiencing pain. This can happen on one or both sides of the body, but it typically affects the legs and feet. It is a mild form of fatigue that is experienced more often than other types.
MS symptoms that can occur more often or significantly vary from person to person. Fatigue is the main symptom that can occur on a fairly regular basis, and can become severe enough to disrupt your lifestyle. Extreme fatigue, which is not better controlled through diet and exercise, can cause a person to simply abandon his or her efforts to live another life. A lack of proper nutrition and a poor sleeping schedule, along with MS pain, fatigue and numbness, make it difficult for a person with MS to work and live a regular life.
People with MS have a higher risk of losing their eyesight than the average person. When a person experiences any of the following MS symptoms: blurry vision, double vision, seeing halos around lights, seeing spots, floaters, blind spots, or flashes, then he or she may be experiencing a neurological symptoms related to optic neuritis. The first signs of optic neuritis are often unclear due to the fact that they occur in different areas of the visual field and only become apparent when the person is standing.
MS pain and MS symptoms that affect the legs often appear in patients that have developed long-term muscle spasticity. Muscle spasticity is a condition that can be related to multiple sclerosis, and which often appears as an increase in muscle mass on one or both legs. Muscle spasticity is sometimes accompanied by loss of bladder and bowel control. MS pain that accompanies muscle spasticity can sometimes be so severe that it wakes the patient up in the middle of the night, which means that they can't get back to sleep.
MS fatigue is the main MS symptom that appears after MS progression has progressed far enough for total loss of mobility. MS fatigue is often difficult to describe and can even involve confusion about day and time. MS fatigue can also be confused with stress, which it very well may be if the patient has been living with MS for a long period of time, since stress can also be a trigger for many MS symptoms. It is always important to note that the fatigue that affects so many MS sufferers is actually a manifestation of damage to the central nervous system, not a depletion of nutrients.
MS triggers such as bladder or bowel incontinence are among the most commonly reported MS symptoms. MS bladder incontinence (involuntary loss of urine) occurs in roughly 50 percent of people with MS and frequently arises from severe muscle weakness caused by MS. MS bowel incontinence (loss of bowel control through uncontrollable diarrhea) is also fairly common, although poorly recognized by doctors and often misdiagnosed by patients. Although both of these conditions are associated with MS, there is no conclusive evidence linking MS bowel incontinence and MS.
