Relapsing remitting MS (secondary progressive MS) is a much more common occurrence than originally thought. This is despite the fact that MRI scans and CAT scans have been used in the initial diagnosis of MS and despite the fact that half of all cases of MS are related to one's immune system. The discovery of the existence of MRI and CAT scans as effective treatments for MS came about through the use of MRI scans which could locate abnormal areas within the brain. MS is also associated with an increased level of pain which is also picked up on MRI scans.
The use of these types of scans has given MS experts the ability to find other symptoms that can be associated with this disease and improve the initial diagnosis. When MRI scans detect abnormal areas within the brain or when there is excess destruction of myelin in the brain, they can easily pinpoint the location of the affected area. Other symptoms that can be associated with MS include numbness and tingling, which can be extremely uncomfortable for the patient. This can make it difficult for the patient to engage in any activity that requires fine motor movements.
While the exact cause of MS is not known, there is strong evidence that some form of visual processing disorder is responsible. This is the most common type of MS symptom and it affects roughly fifty million Americans. The different symptoms of MS can also vary by location on the body but vision impairments are prevalent on both the central and peripheral areas of the body. Some patients may also suffer from visual impairment and this can result in double vision and poor night vision.
Another MS symptom that is not commonly considered is fatigue. The majority of MS sufferers report a persistent lack of energy that can be attributed to a variety of different symptoms. MS sufferers can experience fatigue in the form of hot flashes, which are characterized by perspiration and heat. There are also other forms of fatigue that MS patients can experience such as depression, irritability, and depression. Tingling and fatigue can be a common multiple sclerosis symptom which is why these symptoms are often combined.
Since MS often involves damage to the brain and nervous system, it may experience symptoms of extreme rigidity. In the case of MS sufferers who have experienced a loss of motor function due to inflammation or spasticity, they may experience weakness, numbness and tingling in their extremities. In fact, one of the most common MS symptoms is weakness in the extremities and poor muscle tone which are often confused with exhaustion.
MS sufferers who use corticosteroids as a treatment often experience lessened effects of MS symptoms. Corticosteroids include prednisone, hydrocortisone, methylprednisolone, hydramethylprednisolone and dexamethasone. For individuals who have experienced a traumatic event, doctors often prescribe natalizumab, fingolimod, teriflunomide, tramadolone or methylhexamycin. Individuals who are pregnant are not recommended to take any medication while they are pregnant.
MS is also known as multiple sclerosis, primary progressive, relapsing-progement or secondary progressive. MS affects about 1% of adults and continues to increase in severity over time. Some symptoms of MS are not present in all sufferers and may even go unnoticed. However, all cases of MS can be effectively managed with the right medication, therapy and guidance. MS is not curable but can be controlled to some extent.
If you believe that you are experiencing any of the multiple sclerosis symptoms listed above, see a doctor right away. MS is not known to cure but can be effectively managed. MS is the most commonly diagnosed neurological disease in the United States. There are many different types of treatments for MS ranging from medicinal drugs to different types of therapy.
