If you have been told that you have Multiple Sclerosis, then you may have already started to suffer from the various MS symptoms that are associated with this disease. Some of these include tremor, loss of dexterity, difficulty in concentrating and also bladder control. However, there are still many other symptoms that affect people with MS and which they do not immediately recognize as belonging to this particular disorder. However, when you start experiencing these symptoms, then you are already on the right track towards early detection and a possible cure.
The MS symptoms may appear in various ways and they can even seem quite harmless at first. You might feel that you have a headache and this can occur at any time, but when this does appear, it is a good idea to check it out because it may appear simultaneously with your other MS symptoms. Another example is when your neck hurts or you start having trouble swallowing. At times, you may also feel that you are going to urinate but the pain may appear suddenly. This can be a good indication of paroxysmal dyskinesia, which is otherwise known as the "pins and needles" disease.
Paroxysmal dyskinesia is one of the most difficult MS symptoms to deal with. It involves involuntary jerking and turning of the head, face and torso. When this happens, the person will often fall to the ground and this condition is known as the "fainting sound". People who have had this condition for more than 10 years are found to be highly susceptible to this. If you have had this disease for a long term, then you are highly likely to experience a paroxysmal attack in the future, even if you have managed to keep it under control so far.
However, there are actually some MS symptoms that you may not automatically associate with this disorder. The first signs of MS generally occur in the form of visual disturbances. Here we look at four different symptoms which you might find happening in people who have MS.
* Visual disturbances are the first signs of MS and often include difficulty seeing images on the monitor, or being unable to read the text on the monitor. People with MS often have problems when it comes to reading small print on documents and books. Some people also have problems with focusing on objects that they look at close up.
* Objective vision is one of the first signs of multiple sclerosis and can include problems with seeing details on the outside of the body. Another name for this is "refractive errors". The eyesight of a person with MS is often characterized by having blurred visions, and people with multiple sclerosis are sometimes misdiagnosed because they have poor eyesight. If you have blurry vision, then you may need to get an ophthalmologist to check the health of your eyes and to check whether you are experiencing any worsening of your condition.
* numbness or tingling in your hands and feet is one of the main MS symptoms and again, this is often where many people start to ask if they are developing MS. MS numbness and tingling usually affects the fingers and the first few inches of the palms of your hands, but it can also affect the feet and legs. MS numbness and tingling can be quite uncomfortable, so many people with MS to try to find ways of reducing their symptoms. If you are noticing that your numbness or tingling is not always accompanied by other MS symptoms such as blurry vision, then you could be suffering from the early stages of MS. MS numbness and tingling can also be a sign of problems in the central nervous system, so if you're feeling unwell, speak to your doctor about it.
* Severe pain in the upper part of your back, neck or jaw can be another one of the MS symptoms. The MS pain often affects the back and can be associated with swelling, numbness, muscle weakness or tightness, which means that you might be experiencing an inflammation in the soft tissue of your spine. MS pain can also spread to the leg, or to the arms or the face. If you have these symptoms, then you should visit your doctor as soon as possible.
