MS symptoms can be confusing and frustrating if you don't know what they are. However, when your multiple sclerosis is in its advanced stages, you can experience a wide range of diverse symptoms. You might find yourself feeling unusually tired or weak, or experiencing an overall sense of exhaustion. There might also be bouts of insomnia. There are also times when your vision becomes blurry or distorted. Some people describe having shooting pain or electric-shock sensations that occur at random.
As multiple sclerosis progresses, you can experience the above common symptoms in greater frequency. While fatigue is by far the most common of the MS symptoms, numbness and tingling also become more common. Some people might describe having blurred vision, or even seeing spots where there are none. Some people even report having problems with their balance and coordination. All these things can be attributed to the progression of your disease. In fact, if your doctor doesn't immediately suspect MS, then it's likely that you won't experience all of these symptoms until later in your MS treatment.
It's important to understand that all of these common MS symptoms are not always indicative of MS. Some of them are also caused by something else. So if you start to experience more than one or two of these symptoms in a row, then it's important to see your doctor. One of the things he or she will do is perform a MS test called a MS examination. This is basically a physical examination of your body, performed in order to detect any of the MS symptoms that can be associated with the disease in one's body.
One of the more common MS symptoms involves your muscles and bones. People who have experienced stroke or extensive damage to the nervous system may exhibit early symptoms of MS. For example, a person with early MS may experience muscle spasms or extreme weakness in various parts of his body, similar to what someone who has had a stroke would feel. In addition, someone with MS may complain of persistent back pain and a loss of balance, as well as other unusual or unexplained problems with the muscles and the movement of the limbs.
Another of the MS symptoms is difficulty sleeping. In addition, people with MS might find it difficult to concentrate or focus on simple tasks. MS affects the body's neurological system, affecting the nerve cells that enable you to move. If you experience ongoing problems sleeping, it could mean that MS is causing damage to some of the nerves that allow you to move.
However, some ms symptoms are caused by more serious conditions such as glaucoma or optic neuritis. If you've had a vision problem in the past, you may also be prone to experiencing eye pain or sensitivity to light. Sometimes, an intense glare can make it hard for you to read print or type online. You may also experience blurry vision when looking at close up objects. If you've experienced any of these conditions in the past, you should see your eye doctor and talk about having your eyes tested. It might mean that you have glaucoma, a dangerous condition that causes blindness if untreated.
Blurred Vision MS sufferers also complain about blurred vision, often leading them to seek treatment for their condition. MS affects the nerves that send visual information to the brain, and so any issues with the brain that can interfere with this signal can lead to blurry vision. It's not unusual for people who have MS to complain about seeing a black spot where they see near objects. This occurs even when there is minimal movement near the eyes. However, when the patient moves their eyes, the spot quickly goes away, indicating that the problem is caused by damage to one or more nerve cells.
These MS symptoms aren't all of the possible ones that can occur. While MS affects your nervous system, it's also possible that it can affect your eyesight. If you've noticed any new or different symptoms of MS, talk to your doctor to find out whether any of them are related to the disease you're dealing with or another disorder. Your doctor will be able to make an accurate diagnosis of MS when he or she checks various systems in your body.
