MS symptoms can vary from person to person and even among different types of MS. It is very important to note that each type of MS has its own specific set of symptoms that are associated with the disease. A person with sporadic MS may exhibit any or all of the following: difficulty with memory, balance, speech, vision problems, bladder and bowel problems, weakness in the muscles or limbs, fatigue, and a tendency to become suddenly sick or lightheaded. In addition, MS sufferers can experience pain and discomfort in the joints and muscles, trouble swallowing food and fluids, and problems with learning and memory.
There are four groups of MS: Clinically segregable; non-cluttered; parkinsonism-like; neurogenic, and mixed. Clinically isolated MS (SCMS) occurs when someone experiences multiple Myelines, a protein complex found in certain nerves within the body. Non-cluttered (NTCS) is a group of MS that are unspecific to the myelin. Neurogenic multiple sclerosis (NMS) is an MS that is a result of a change in the brain or nervous system. Parkinsonism-like is a MS that exhibits many of the symptoms of classic MS.
People with MS experience different symptoms depending on the part of the body they affect. The eyes are usually affected first, causing a variety of eye-related MS symptoms such as dry eyes (xerophthalmia), blurred vision (myotic glaucoma), and eye pain (botulosicheritis). The spine is next, followed by the limbs, including the hands, feet, and eyes. Spasticity of the muscles can affect gait, posture, and range of motion, with weight loss being one of the common side effects of spasticity.
MS numbness and tingling can affect any part of the body, but there are four main regions that are more likely to be affected. These include the central nervous system, which controls and coordinates all motor functions; the central nervous system and extremities, which include the skin, bones, and muscles; the central nervous system and the nerves, which include the spinal cord and the nerves that exit the spine. It is important to note that people with MS exhibit normal activity levels prior to experiencing MS symptoms. As soon as MS numbness and tingling occur, however, it becomes more difficult to perform basic activities.
The sooner a MS patient is diagnosed, the sooner treatment can begin. There are several reasons why someone would have multiple sclerosis symptoms. If someone in your family has been diagnosed with MS, then there is a greater chance that you could develop MS. Moreover, some studies indicate that environment and genetics play a role in MS. If someone in your family has suffered from MS before, you are more likely to develop it yourself.
There are many ways that MS affects the body, and there are also multiple MS symptoms that affect different parts of your body. Two of the most common MS symptoms are fatigue and pain. Fatigue occurs when the body does not receive enough energy from an adequate diet. People with MS have a very low tolerance for pain, so when they experience muscle aches or fatigue, they must take additional pain medications to deal with the effects.
Another way that MS affects the body is through its effects on moods and behavior. People with MS have a variety of mood swings ranging from extreme depression to extreme elation. The progression of the disease can be slowed down with the use of antidepressants and anti-anxiety drugs. However, these medications can also cause multiple sclerosis symptoms like fatigue, which can lead to depression.
MS symptoms related to mental health include depression. If you are having problems dealing with depression or other mood swings, you may want to seek help from a medical professional. MS can be very debilitating, and untreated depression can worsen the condition to a point where it causes other physical and psychological problems as well. You should visit a mental health professional if you notice that your moods are out of control and that you are losing strength and energy at a rapid pace.
