MS is a serious condition that can cause permanent damage. It’s a potentially disabling disease of the spinal cord and brain that causes communication problems between your brain and the rest of your body. With this condition protective sheath (myelin) that covers nerve fibers is attacked by the immune system. Diagnosing MS can be challenging because its signs and symptoms can widely vary from person to person. In some cases patients can experience long periods of remission with no new symptoms. While there is no cure for MS some treatments can help modify the course of the disease and manage recovery speed after attacks. Movement is commonly affected as a sign of MS.
Signs of MS can include…
- Numbness that usually occurs on one side of your body
- Electric-shock sensations that result from certain neck movements
- Unsteady gait, lack of coordination, and tremor
- Vision problems (prolonged double vision, blurry vision, and loss of vision)
