What is multiple sclerosis?
Multiple sclerosis (MS) is a chronic health condition that involves the central nervous system. In multiple sclerosis, the immune system attacks myelin sheaths. Myelin sheaths are the protective layers that surround nerve fibers.
Multiple sclerosis causes temporary lesions and inflammation. Multiple sclerosis can also lead to long-term lesions caused by scars, which can impede the transmission of signals from your brain to the rest of your body.
What are the symptoms of multiple sclerosis?
People that are suffering from multiple sclerosis usually experience a lot of symptoms. The symptoms of multiple sclerosis vary widely due to the nature of the disease.
The severity of the symptoms can change yearly, monthly, or even daily.
Below are some of the symptoms commonly associated with multiple sclerosis:
According to a National Multiple Sclerosis Society (NMSS) report, over 80 percent of MS patients experience fatigue. The fatigue of multiple sclerosis can make it difficult for you to carry out your daily tasks.
MS causes difficulty in walking. This may be due to:
- Inability to balance
- Numbness in your feet or legs
- Visual disturbance
- Muscle spasticity
- Muscle weakness
And because you’re having difficulty walking, you’ll be prone to injuries if you fall.
