MS symptoms are quite varied and depend upon the specific type of MS that an individual has. Common MS symptoms include: coordination problems, including balance problems, difficulty walking, dizziness, depression, fatigue, or an increased risk of falls. A long list of potential MS symptoms could also include: coordination problems, including balance problems, double vision, or decreased peripheral vision; difficulty walking; muscle or joint pain, including stiffness, weakness, and pain; difficulty speaking; problems with vision (double vision, blurred vision, or decreased peripheral vision may be experienced by some individuals). MS affects the muscles, nerves, and other organs of the body. The symptoms of MS may vary according to the location of the disease in the body.
When MS is in its early stages, the only generally known symptom of MS is difficulty walking and a noticeable decrease in muscle strength, slowing of motor function, and an inability to recognize and pick up cues. As the disease progresses, the MS symptoms of weaker muscles and muscle weakness are also noticed, sometimes resulting in falls. MS patients can also experience a gradual worsening of their MS symptoms, which can range from mildly annoying to very disabling. Many people with multiple sclerosis find it difficult to maintain daily routines such as working, socializing, and avoiding situations that can trigger a relapse of their symptoms.
MS relapses frequently; however, there are times when relapses do occur. MS relapses can have different causes, and they often occur in people who are undergoing therapies for their MS. People with MS may experience a relapse when the MS medications that they are taking are not treating their MS properly. Relapses can also happen when a patient is starting or adjusting a new dosage of a medicine that he or she is prescribed to take for MS.
Apart from these, there are several other MS symptoms that may occur during a relapse, including loss of muscle control and a reduction in alertness or balance. Loss of muscle control can affect the patient's ability to walk, talk, and run, but it is more common in patients whose MS has been aggravated. People with MS have weaker nerve endings than healthy individuals, which means that multiple sclerosis can cause significant damage to the body's nerves if it is not taken care of properly. In addition, muscle control can also be affected by the medications used to treat MS. Some MS drugs can cause the numbness that is characteristic of multiple sclerosis and the weakening of muscles associated with it.
Another MS symptom that can occur is fatigue. This is one of the most widespread MS symptoms, and it can be mild, moderate, or severe. However, there is a difference between fatigue experienced before and after a day's work. People who experience severe fatigue should immediately consult a physician. A doctor can perform tests to determine whether the fatigue is related to MS.
MS affects the body's neurological system, which leads to a number of other medical conditions, such as depression, anxiety, irritability, attention deficit disorder (ADD), and depression. It is important for everyone, especially those who rely on their motor skills, to make sure that they are able to function normally even if they are suffering from various MS symptoms. A healthcare provider can help people suffering from depression, anxiety, and ADD by helping them manage their depression and anxiety attacks through various treatments, including medications. The healthcare provider may prescribe antidepressants to treat the depression and anxiety, which can help boost the patient's moods and reduce the frequency of MS-related attacks.
MS patients are also at risk for developing short-term or long-term hearing loss. This is due to the fact that MS causes damage to the inner ear, which allows sound to travel in only one direction: up. Short-term hearing loss often occurs as a result of stress and a decrease in the hearing capacity of people with MS; however, prolonged hearing loss can be caused by the inability of the body's tissues to absorb sound efficiently.
A healthcare provider can also help alleviate the symptoms of MS by administering several different medicines, which can help the muscles surrounding the ears to relax. For instance, your GP, MS nurse or neurologist can recommend that you bathe or shower more frequently to stimulate relaxation of the muscles around the ears. You can also get advice on the best way to take in supplements, which can help improve the flow of oxygen-rich blood to the nerves and promote the production of sweat.
