The spectrum of symptoms of multiple sclerosis can be very diverse, including other symptoms, depending on the part of the body affected. Multiple sclerosis is an inflammatory disease of the nervous system, which causes dysfunction, mainly at the level of the central nervous system. Since multiple sclerosis affects the nervous system, people with this form of nervous system disease may experience symptoms in most areas of the nervous distribution of the body.
While more than 2 million people worldwide suffer from multiple sclerosis, in the United States the disease affects about 350,000 people. For some reason, multiple sclerosis primarily affects a woman’s sex. The disease can also be caused by men, but in women, multiple sclerosis is very common. Another interesting feature of multiple sclerosis is that it usually affects young people. The disease has the highest incidence in people between 20 and 40 years of age, with little effect on the elderly.
Multiple sclerosis is accompanied by damage to nerve cells, destroying myelin, a substance that normally covers neurons. Myelin plays an important role in the transmission of nerve impulses throughout the body and establishes connections between adjacent nerve cells. When the myelin layer is affected, nerve stimuli move at a reduced speed between neurons and the body cannot respond adequately to external stimuli.
The symptoms of multiple sclerosis vary and can be recognized in other areas of the body. Most patients show individual symptoms of multiple sclerosis and tend to appear in episodes of “outbreaks.” The development of multiple sclerosis is unpredictable and alternates between the palliative and recurrent phases. Most people with multiple sclerosis experience intermittent and repetitive symptoms, which are amplified in the relapsing remitting multiple sclerosis. Since the symptoms of multiple sclerosis are diverse and nonspecific at certain stages of the disease, multiple sclerosis cannot be diagnosed only with clinical symptoms. Multiple sclerosis is usually diagnosed in laboratory tests, blood tests and sophisticated neurological tests.
Common symptoms of multiple sclerosis are pronounced fatigue, weakness in the body, tingling, burning, pain, itching and muscle paralysis, loss of hands and uncontrolled body movements. Other physical symptoms of multiple sclerosis are decreased vision, loss of mobility, tremors, convulsions, tremors, imbalance, dizziness, dizziness. In the later stages of the disease, symptoms of multiple sclerosis may include partial paralysis, renal and gastrointestinal dysfunction.
Neuropsychological symptoms of multiple sclerosis include Mental confusion; Altered and incorrect perceptions; Poor concentration Short-term memory loss; Judgment committed and unpredictable sudden change of mood. The most common symptom of multiple sclerosis in people with this form of nervous system disease is depression. Most people affected by multiple sclerosis eventually become depressed, avoiding any interaction with others.
Many of the symptoms of multiple sclerosis can be very noticeable at certain stages of the disease but can be relieved by medical treatment. The medical treatment currently available can relieve the symptoms of multiple sclerosis in the period of relapse and, over time, can help rebuild myelin and help the patient recover from the disease. It is important to detect the symptoms of multiple sclerosis in time to begin the administration of appropriate treatment before the disease becomes severe.
