MS symptoms are varied and it may not always be easy to determine whether you have MS or not. MS is a chronic disease that affects the central nervous system, which controls the muscles, bones and other organs. The symptoms of MS are varied and sometimes they can become so severe that the patient may feel like he/she is going to die. MS is diagnosed when the patient experiences at least four MS related symptoms for one year. If any of the symptoms last for more than two months, the patient is diagnosed with MS. However, there are instances when MS symptoms may occur even after the patient has received a diagnosis of MS.
The first signs of MS generally appear in the form of a few minor complaints such as pain and aches in the body, blurred vision, changes in the skin and changes in the behavior of the individual. These symptoms usually occur in the morning and gradually develop over a period of time. Sometimes, people with MS experience hearing loss, having problems with vision, difficulty in swallowing and experiencing blurred vision. Sometimes, these first signs of MS do not develop for a long time. People who experience these first signs of MS need to be attentive, as early treatment can help them to make a faster recovery from the disease.
There are many MS symptoms, which include motor loss, coordination problems, balance problems, speech problems, bladder and bowel problems, and vision problems. Different areas of the body affected by MS include the neck, shoulders, arms, legs, hips, and the spine. There are also many other areas of the body that can be affected by this disease, such as the eyes, brain, lungs, heart and lungs, and facial muscles. MS affects the nervous system, and therefore, affects the functioning of the body's organs and systems.
The first step in MS diagnosis is to take a complete medical history, and check for any other conditions such as diabetes, infections, kidney diseases and other problems. Another important thing to do is to determine the type of MS. Currently, there are two types of MS: progressive and mixed. Progressive MS is when the disease causes more disability over a period of time, while mixed MS is a combination of both. The following is a brief description of the most common MS symptoms.
* Fluid or Dry Skin and Sensitiveness to Temperature Some people may find their skin becomes very sensitive to temperature or have problems with perspiration. Other people may notice an increase in sweating or even have chronic dry skin. In some cases, MS symptoms may involve a decrease in bodily sensations, like touch or pain sensation.
* Headaches, Sore Or Tired Eyes and/or Ringing in the Ears MS sufferers often notice different kinds of headaches, and may even have constant a ringing sound in their ears. Others may experience ear pain or sensitivity, or have problems with hearing loss. MS often affects the nerves that surround the eyes, making it difficult for them to see things clearly. A healthcare provider can diagnose multiple sclerosis symptoms by asking questions and conducting a thorough physical exam.
* Fatigue MS sufferers may find that their fatigue can become severe and interfering with their daily lives. Managing fatigue can help improve symptoms. There are many treatments available to control fatigue and ease depression. While there is no cure for MS, there are treatments available that can keep your body active and improve symptoms.
MS is not a disease that should be ignored and should not be left untreated. If you suspect that you have multiple sclerosis, visit your local neurologist for a complete and comprehensive MS diagnosis. MS may be linked to any number of other conditions that you could be experiencing, which can worsen your condition if you don't get a firm diagnosis from a trusted medical professional. Your neurologist can make a correct diagnosis of MS, and offer treatment options that will work for you.
