Causes damage of insulators of myelin
white blood cells attack Schwann cells (treated like an invader)
many scars form on myelin
Balance problems are caused by issues in cerebrum and cerebellum
prickling is caused in sensory nerve tract Symptoms Careers: We encourage our patient to go see a otolaryngologist after being diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis. They should see a otolaryngologist because they are specialized in ear, nose, and throat problems. You could benefit from seeing a ENT doctor by getting your hearing back and better sight again. We also encourage our patient to see a physical therapist. They should see a physical therapist because they can help the patient with their balance. They can also help with coordination problems. The physical therapist could help the patient become physically active again. Treatment Options: Possible Diagnoses Peripheral Neuropathy
