If you suffer from MS symptoms then you know what a difficult existence MS can be. Often people are misdiagnosed because they have what are considered to be ordinary and unrelated symptoms. It's important to note that these types of symptoms are very common for people who are living with MS. You should go to an MS specialist if you think you have MS or have had previous symptoms before.
The most common MS symptoms are: difficulty concentrating, muscle pain or fatigue, loss or gain of appetite, numbness or tingles sensations (usually a little like pins and needles), muscle weakness or spasms. MS symptoms may come and go over time or develop into more severe conditions. They often are caused by the immune system attacking your nervous system or spinal cord by mistake.
MS symptoms may include weakness, tremor (muscle weakness), loss of balance (slowing of movement), hyperactivity, and/or depression. Some attacks occur suddenly, while others occur periodically. Paroxysmal attacks are one type of MS symptoms. They are also known as 'relapses'. Other MS symptoms may include olfactory attacks (pins and needles sensations in the nose), neurocardiogenic syncope (a condition where the heart muscle does not receive electrical signals due to problems with the pacemaker), seizures, anemia, polydipsia (difficulties with raising the blood pressure), fatigue, and myalgia (general weakness).
MS frequently affects people as they get older. However, the symptoms may worsen with age because the multiple sclerosis may become resistant to the medicines. As a result, the multiple sclerosis may become worse even though there are no other causes of weakness.
A number of other MS symptoms can occur simultaneously with hearing loss. These can include dysphagia (difficulties with swallowing), dysphagia (difficulties with moving food from the stomach), oesophagus inflammation, vagusitis (inflammation of the vagina), otosclerosis (joint damage in the neck), meningitis (inflammation of the brain stem), and meningoencephalitis (inflammation of the brain). Women are more likely to suffer from multiple sclerosis than men. The most common MS secondary symptoms in women are depression and anxiety.
After a central nervous system disturbance causing MS is diagnosed, the patient's doctor may suggest surgery or other treatments. If you're taking prescribed medication for your MS, make sure you understand how it will affect your medicine, the dosage, and how long it will take to relieve the symptoms. Often, an MS patient and his or her family members need to be notified about any potential side effects of medications that are prescribed by the treating physician. Make sure your family and friends know the medications you're taking, and if there is a possibility that you'll be transferring your medications between different pharmacies, confirm this with your pharmacist.
Because MS affects the nervous system, many people with the disorder have difficulty with their ability to think, regulate their emotions, and lead healthy lives. This makes it important for patients to have a strong support group - friends and family - to help them deal with emotional and physical stresses associated with MS. Many people find comfort in fellow MS sufferers and seek therapy and support groups to cope with their neurological symptoms. There are also numerous support groups online, including several online communities dedicated to chronic MS sufferers. These groups offer a safe and anonymous place to share information about your symptoms, learn about ways to cope with them, and connect with other sufferers of MS.
MS is a disease that is usually diagnosed when someone shows one or more of its debilitating symptoms, including severe pain and inability to move the joints. It can also cause a loss of muscle strength and co-ordination, along with speech problems and loss of balance and coordination. If you've been diagnosed with MS, then you may want to consider seeking treatment. Your doctor will likely prescribe several drugs to control some of the symptoms of MS, including medicine to control your symptoms, as well as an anti-inflammatory to reduce damage to your nerves. Some MS sufferers may be given drugs to fight the disease in its early stages. However, there are many people who choose not to take medication, instead opting for various natural ways of dealing with the disease.
