What exactly is Multiple Sclerosis and how does it affect the body? MS symptoms are non-specific, meaning that they can occur in either one or both eyes, on one or both legs, in various areas of the face or scalp, or even on one or both arms. In addition to these obvious locations, MS can affect the lungs, brain, and spine, among other parts of the body. MS sufferers may also suffer from bladder and kidney disease, or problems with their eyes and hearing.
While some ms sufferers do not show any symptoms at all, others experience wide-ranging attacks of demyelination, a condition that results in the loss of photoreceptors in the macula - the part of the eye that enables color vision. This can result in blurry vision and loss of peripheral vision. Some other common MS symptoms include lack of concentration, fatigue, short-term memory problems, decreased emotional response, speech problems, neck or back pain, numbness, and changes in personality, such as depression, irritability, and anxiety. If you experience one or more of these symptoms, then you should see your doctor for a proper diagnosis.
The major MS symptoms seen in most people are fatigue, short-term memory loss, blurred vision, decreased emotional response, speech problems, neck or back pain, numbness, and changes in personality. MS can also affect the digestive tract, making it difficult to digest food, increasing the risk of infections, and causing severe cramping. In addition to these effects, MS can damage and destroy the brain cells and nerve fibers that control motor function, as well as affecting the blood supply to the body. While not all individuals will suffer from all of the multiple sclerosis symptoms, more than 50 percent of MS sufferers will experience at least some of them.
Multiple Sclerosis symptoms can be divided into three main categories: relapsing or remitting, sensorineural, and mixed. Relapsing MS occurs in a few different ways and can be either spontaneous or triggered by an event. Relapsing MS symptoms may include loss of balance, trouble walking, slowing of body movement, short term memory loss, poor concentration, and irritability. Some relapsing MS symptoms are similar to those associated with the flu, including nausea and fever, headaches, muscle aches, dizziness, and a loss of balance.
Sensorineural MS symptoms are usually the result of the nerve damage that MS can cause. The symptoms are very similar to those of high blood pressure, including sensitivity to light, a pounding heart, headaches, muscle cramps, and loss of balance. MS can also affect vision, causing blurred vision, decreased vision, or double vision. MS can affect almost any part of the body, but the majority of its symptoms are found on the hands, feet, and face. MS first signs usually begin during the early years of adulthood and last for most of one's life.
Stress, anxiety, and other emotional issues are very common factors that can trigger symptoms of MS. However, there are several other things that can contribute to MS. These include infections such as urinary tract infections and sinusitis, Lupus, diabetes, and sickle cell anemia. Sudden changes in temperature and weather are another common factor that can cause fatigue. MS fatigue is also commonly linked to depression.
MS is caused by the buildup of abnormal proteins called tau proteins in the joints, the brain, and the spinal cord. The tau protein builds up over time and leads to inflammation of the joints, the brain, and the spinal cord, which then causes stiffness and pain. While MS symptoms vary from person to person, they are often very similar to those associated with other health conditions such as diabetes, influenza, and heart disease, and can range from mildly uncomfortable to incredibly debilitating.
