Multiple sclerosis is an inflammatory disease of the nervous system that can affect the spinal cord, brain and optic nerves. It can cause a wide range of debilitating symptoms and sometimes severe functional impairments, according to which area they occur. MS symptoms can vary and are unpredictable, depending upon which part of the nervous system is involved, and to what extent. However, common MS symptoms tend to include weakness, dizziness, blurred vision, poor concentration, decreased reflexes and bladder or bowel incontinence. Sometimes, the MS may also lead to loss of balance, extreme fatigue, or even short-term memory loss. In some instances, MS can even lead to death.
MS affects about one million Americans alone, and these numbers are steadily rising. This disease can occur in one person at a time, or it can strike anyone and seriously affect their quality of life. For some people, their lifestyle choices, such as the amount of physical activity they get or whether they smoke, can increase the chance of developing MS. MS sufferers may experience their first MS symptoms in middle age, but it can actually strike at any age, although it seems to be more common in people who have diabetes, kidney problems or African-American race. MS typically develops slowly over a period of years, although in some cases it may show up suddenly and severely.
MS often co-occurs with depression. MS can cause a depressed mood, intense frustration and feelings of worthlessness, helplessness and hopelessness. Because MS causes damage to the body’s own cells and protein structures, depressed moods that occur along with MS symptoms could be a possible sign of a stroke or heart attack. MS can also lead to other serious health problems, such as diabetes, irritability, cognitive impairment and osteoporosis. This is why it’s important that patients who experience depression with MS symptoms seek medical care from a healthcare professional as soon as possible.
The majority of MS symptoms will probably involve at least some degree of sensory manifestation. A patient may complain of sensory tingling or numbness, a flicking sensation, or a small pinpoint pain. Other than that, there’s not too much that can be felt physically, although a person with MS may appear to be more fatigued than someone without MS.
MS typically affects the central nervous system, which controls the muscles, skin, muscles, veins, hormones, and glands. Pain, including persistent and severe pain, bowel changes, spasticity, decreased appetite and the inability to hold on to basic hygiene, can be typical of MS. However, MS symptoms can also include muscle weakness, fatigue, lack of concentration, bladder control, difficulty concentrating, short-term memory loss, urinary frequency and urgency, involuntary eye movement, and changes in personality and mood.
MS causes inflammation of the myelin sheath, which is a protective sheath surrounding nerves within the brain and spinal cord. When the myelin sheath becomes thin, neurological signals are interrupted and can result in painful muscle spasms or weakness. Some MS symptoms may also involve an altered sense of smell, speech, taste, touch, and hearing. A person with MS may experience tingling or numbness in the fingers or toes. They may also experience muscle spasms or weakness in different body areas. MS can cause damage to the eyesight, where they may experience blurry vision or increased glare.
MS relapses. MS relapses frequently, often without prior notice. MS relapses frequently because the immune system becomes weaker with time, as it does in people without MS. MS relapses are classified as acute, subacute, or chronic. An acute relapse occurs suddenly and without warning, while a subacute relapse occurs more slowly, and is characterized by remissions that last longer than is usual for MS sufferers.
MS sufferers have a tendency to lose energy quickly, even when engaging in light physical activity. One other way in which the early signs of multiple sclerosis symptoms may be detected is by the presence of a sore or swollen jaw. The onset of MS typically produces swelling of one or several joints. The swollen jaw may produce pain when the jaw is moved, such as in yawns. A chronic MS patient may experience muscle cramps, weakness, loss of appetite, or constipation. There is no way to predict with certainty whether these early signs of MS symptoms will result in later stages of MS, but keeping an eye on your health can help you keep track of your health on a daily basis.
