It damages the myelin sheath, the material that surrounds and protects nerve cells. This damage slows down or blocks messages between brain and body, leading to the symptoms of MS. They can include---- * Visual disturbances
* Muscle weakness
* Trouble with coordination and balance
* Sensations such as numbness, prickling, or "pins and needles"
* Thinking and memory problems MS diagnosed?
* MRI (magnetic resonance imaging) scans
* An electro-physiological test
* Examining the cerebro-spinal fluid can help to dianose multiple sclerosis. How is multiple sclerosis treated?
There is no cure for MS, but medicines may slow it down and help control symptoms, Initially, corticosteroids, such as prednisone or methylprednisolone, were widely used.. Physical and occupational therapy may also help. Prognosis:
Multiple sclerosis is not a fatal disease. Most people with multiple sclerosis have a normal or near-normal life span and usually die from the same conditions that affect the general population (heart disease, cancer). Still, MS symptoms can negatively affect quality of life. Suicide rates among patients with MS are higher than average.
The majority of patients with MS do not become severely disabled. And women tend to have a better outlook than men. No one knows what causes MS. It may be an autoimmune disease, which happens when body attacks itself. Multiple sclerosis affects women more than men. It often begins between the ages of 20 and 40. Usually, the disease is mild, but some people lose the ability to write, speak or walk.
