MS symptoms can vary and come and go from time to time. They may be mild or worse still severe. The MS symptoms caused by your own immune system getting out of hand are known as neurologic. These nerves control a number of other parts of your body.
Muscle Spasms MS sufferers will sometimes complain of spasms or involuntary contractions of muscles, even when there is no pain. These sudden spasms could be the result of a sudden movement or in some cases a short movement of the affected limb. Other MS symptoms, which can look like spasms include loss of bladder or bowel control and nausea or vomiting. If you have muscular spasms, this can also lead to dizziness, loss of balance or nausea or dizziness at night. Stiffness and/or weakness MS sufferers who have been diagnosed with MS often complain of muscular weakness that affects both legs. Sometimes these weakness affects your ability to walk.
First Signs of MS Some people will experience a tingling sensation in their hands or feet, and in some cases, their eyesight will begin to deteriorate. Early first signs of MS typically show up in the form of stiffness or pain in the arms or legs. Dizziness can also be one of the first signs of MS. This can make it difficult to concentrate on simple tasks. Later on, your dizziness may come about as a side effect of another condition you may have.
Risk Factors For Developing Dizziness While walking, being late to respond to light and sound, suffering from urinary or bowel incontinence, experiencing earaches or sinus infections, or having a low back or headaches are some of the risk factors for developing dizziness. In addition, people who smoke or have allergies are at an increased risk of developing this condition. However, the early symptoms of MS often appear in people who already suffer from other conditions.
Role of Lymphatic System When there is an imbalance between white blood cells and the body's immune system, it results in the stimulation of nerves that cause feelings of tiredness and weakness. The disease called MS actually begins in the nerves. However, the loss of the lymphatic system that usually occurs in diseases such as cancer and Parkinson's disease often makes MS symptoms harder to diagnose. MS sufferers often complain that they feel weak and fatigued even when they aren't experiencing a case of the disease. Doctors use tests such as MRI and electroencephalogram (EEG) to detect the progression of the disease and to rule out other conditions such as depression or fatigue.
A Note on Common Symptoms MS is a chronic disease meaning that the symptoms tend to recur on and off throughout a person's life. For example, one person might experience acute symptoms like muscle pain and tingling for three days followed by flu-like symptoms and weakness for a week. Another person may go through a mild case of MS symptoms for two months then suddenly have a relapse and have severe joint and arthritic pain for even longer. A person with MS may also start having memory loss, poor concentration, blurry vision, and fatigue. A person with MS will most likely have trouble with coordination, balance, and gait.
Signs of MS A number of other conditions also mimic multiple sclerosis symptoms like depression, anxiety, hypoglycemia, arthritis, and multiple sclerosis. If you experience consistent fatigue, blurred vision, and difficulty concentrating, then you could be a candidate for MS. Other signs include recurrent injuries that cause pain and difficulty walking, short-term memory loss, and difficulty performing fine motor functions. MS patients are more prone to infections due to lesions on the nervous system and respiratory problems like snoring, coughing, and breathlessness. If you experience constant headaches and have trouble getting out of bed on time, then MS may be affecting you.
MS symptoms develop gradually over a period of weeks or months, sometimes years. They often resemble those of more serious health issues like influenza and diabetes but can quickly become confused with them. The main MS symptoms are pain and stiffness caused by inflammation of the central nervous system that affects movement of the body and muscle. Other symptoms include a numbness and tingling sensation in the arms and legs, loss of bladder or bowel control, poor balance and coordination, blurred vision, slurred speech, and cramps.
