Multiple sclerosis (MS) is a disease of the brain and spinal cord which has a debilitating effect on your body due to the weakening of the nerves. In MS, the immune system attacks the protective sheath that covers nerve fibers and causes communication problems between your brain and the rest of your body. This results in permanent damage or deterioration of the nerves.
Multiple sclerosis signs and symptoms may differ greatly from person to person and over the course of the disease depending on the location of affected nerve fibers. Most common symptoms are numbness or weakness in limbs mostly on one side of the body, partial or complete loss of vision, slurred speech, fatigue, dizziness, impaired bowel, bladder or sexual function.
There are no specific tests for diagnosing Multiple Sclerosis, however your doctor will order blood tests, MRI, EMG, NCV to rule out other diseases which also have similar symptoms. Once all the other such diseases are ruled out then it is considered as Multiple Sclerosis.
There is no cure for multiple sclerosis. Treatment typically focuses on speeding recovery from attacks, slowing the progression of the disease and managing MS symptoms. Some people have such mild symptoms that no treatment is necessary. There are several approved medications for the treatment of Multiple Sclerosis which can administered orally or intravenous. Most of the treatments are aimed at reducing the rapid progression of the disease.
A physical or occupational therapist can teach you stretching and strengthening exercises and show you how to use devices to make it easier to perform daily tasks. Physical therapy along with the use of a mobility aid when necessary can also help manage leg weakness and other gait problems often associated with MS.
If you have mild to moderate MS, regular exercise can help improve your strength, muscle tone, balance and coordination. Swimming or other water exercises are good options if you're bothered by heat. Other types of mild to moderate exercise recommended for people with MS include walking, stretching, low-impact aerobics, stationary bicycling, yoga and tai chi. This will also help you in destressing.
