MS symptoms are unpredictable and variable. No two individuals possess the same symptoms, and therefore every individual of symptoms may vary over time. One individual may experience just one or two of their potential symptoms while another individual experiences several more. Some individuals may experience symptoms that affect only one area of their body, such as fingers or toes. Other individuals may experience multiple symptoms across their bodies, which can result in loss of ability to perform simple tasks.
In order to properly diagnose MS symptoms, it is necessary to collect accurate information on patients first signs and symptoms. First, look for decreased vision and a slowing of movement, both of which are common to sufferers of MS. Look also for problems with speech and language, loss of balance, and bladder control. When an individual first experiences one or more of these symptoms, they should be seen by a medical professional for proper diagnosis. A medical professional should never rely on a patient's description of their symptoms. A medical professional should take note of the patient's first signs and symptoms and then make a proper diagnosis based upon those symptoms.
When it comes to MS symptoms there are three distinct stages of disease progression. The first stage of progression is when a patient has a first onset of the disease, this is generally recognized as a slowly progressing disease. Patients may experience a few symptoms at first and then begin to experience progressively worse MS symptoms over time. A second stage of progression is when multiple sclerosis symptoms begin to affect different areas of the body, this stage is known as the secondary progressive type of disease progression.
Relapsing-remitting MS is one of the three main types of MS. This particular type of MS progresses through several cycles of relapses or rebound relapses. With relapsing-remitting MS, the patient experiences sudden spells of remissions where they have lessened their MS symptoms. In addition, relapses can also occur with the cessation of certain medications. In addition, relapses can occur in between periods of remission. Finally, relapses can occur with periods of absence from MS symptoms.
Two of the most common MS symptoms which affect all people with the disease are vision problems, and hearing loss. In addition, many ms patients complain of having a temporary worsening of their symptoms once they begin to experience a loss in one or more of their senses. This can include losing sensations in the legs and feet, or becoming aware that they are wet, cold or very quiet.
Another common MS symptom affecting many people is nerve damage. Typically, nerve damage occurs when someone is experiencing an attack. For example, if a person is cutting their finger to try to work something out, it is possible that they could develop a tiny cut near the spot they are attempting to cut. In addition, nerve damage can occur from over exertion, or from a lack of exercise. In fact, for many people who suffer from MS symptoms, exercise is a vital part of their treatment plan.
Yet another way that nerve damage can occur is through the development of a tremor or a spasm. A tremor is an involuntary movement of one's limbs. Spasms on the other hand, are a more permanent change to a person's ability to move. In fact, some MS sufferers' spasms can last as long as 10 minutes.
While the above MS symptoms may seem very common to sufferers, it is important to note that each case is different. If you or someone you know suffers from any of these symptoms, it is important to consult a physician. A physician will be able to accurately assess your condition, and will be able to recommend a proper course of treatment. In addition, if your symptoms do not improve with conventional treatment, it may be necessary to seek the assistance of an alternative medicine practitioner. Seeking help early in the disease can significantly reduce the impact MS has on your life.
