MS Symptoms are a very difficult thing to understand. There are many possible reasons for MS symptoms. It can be caused by many things such as; immune system deficiency, neurological disorders, and other internal factors. In this section, we will discuss what causes MS symptoms in detail and how to cope with them.
The most common MS symptoms that you will have to deal with are fatigue and pain. This is one of the hardest things to deal with, because there really isn't any way to explain how your body feels tired and painful all at once. Some of the more common symptoms of multiple sclerosis are: difficulty in focusing and concentrating, joint and muscle aches, decreased ability to recognize colors and shapes, and even memory problems. These things can happen on any part of your body at any given time.
Another very common MS symptom that you need to be aware of is blurred vision. This can affect everything from your peripheral vision to your near visual field (your vision towards the front of the head and beyond). Clarity in vision has a lot to do with your brain's processing of visual information, so when you experience blurry vision it is important that you start practicing seeing correctly right away. If you are having trouble seeing, your eyes need to be checked out by an optometrist or ophthalmologist as soon as possible.
Eye strain is another one of the main MS symptoms that you should be aware of. When you have MS, you are at a greater risk of having eye strain. It does not have to be a serious problem, but if you notice that you are having trouble focusing or that your vision is blurry when you are near others, then you should make an appointment with an optometrist or ophthalmologist as soon as possible to find out if this disease is causing the problem. Eye strain can easily be confused with straining your eyes during other activities, such as reading or computer use, which could lead to a wrong diagnosis and unnecessary treatments or even a misdiagnosis of a different disease.
A few other MS symptoms that might seem unrelated could actually point to other problems, or even the onset of a more serious disease. For example, pain in the ears is often a sign of MS. However, muscle spasms in the neck and shoulders could also indicate the beginning of MS. Muscle rigidity can cause difficulty with swallowing and moving your head, a symptom that can be associated with diabetes, heart disease, or other problems. If you suspect that you have MS, it is a good idea to see a doctor to get an accurate diagnosis. Only a medical professional can make a firm diagnosis.
Another one of the MS symptoms that you should be aware of is hearing loss. Many people go through periods where they experience no problems with their hearing, such as when they are undergoing treatment for another condition, or are resting. However, there are some MS patients who report hearing loss, or find that their hearing is worse than it was previously. This is a worrisome problem, especially if you are trying to enjoy social interaction or communicate with others. Some MS patients experience tinnitus, a ringing, buzzing, or other sort of sound in the ear that can only be heard by the person experiencing it.
One of the other symptoms that you should be aware of is numbness, tingling, or other sensations in the hands or feet. These sensations, often reported as unusual pain, may be caused by extreme sensitivity to cold temperatures, low blood sugar levels, or by a decline in body chemical levels. Some MS sufferers are so sensitive to temperature that they can literally freeze themselves during the winter. In rare cases, these sensations can cause serious problems with the electrical systems of the body, such as a loss of bladder or bowel control. If you have numbness, tingling, or other sensations in the hands or feet, talk to your doctor right away to find out if it could be a sign of MS.
MS causes inflammation and dysfunction in the brain and body. The nerves are no longer able to function properly, which leads to loss of sensations, numbness, and other problems. By boosting your immune system, maintaining proper nutrition, and avoiding the triggers of MS, you can greatly reduce the chances that you will develop these uncomfortable side effects of your disease.
