Symptoms vary widely, depending on the amount of damage and the nerves that are affected. People with severe cases of multiple sclerosis may lose the ability to walk or speak clearly. Multiple sclerosis can be difficult to diagnose early in the course of the disease because symptoms often come and go — sometimes disappearing for months. Symptoms may include: Numbness or weakness in one or more limbs; Partial or complete loss of central vision, usually in one eye, often with pain during eye movement (optic neuritis); Double vision or blurring of vision; Tingling or pain in parts of your body; Electric-shock sensations that occur with certain head movements; Tremor, lack of coordination or unsteady gait; Slurred speech; Fatigue; Dizziness; Heat sensitivity is common in people with multiple sclerosis. Small increases in body temperature can trigger or worsen symptoms.
Multiple sclerosis has no cure. However, treatments may help treat MS attacks, manage symptoms and reduce progress of the disease. Symptoms of vary depending on the location of affected nerve fibers. Some people have a benign form of multiple sclerosis. In this form of the disease, the condition remains stable and often doesn't progress to serious forms of MS after the initial attack.http://www.mayoclinic.com/health/multiple-sclerosis/DS00188
Multiple Sclerosis has recently come to be considered an autoimmune disease – a disease in which the body does not recognize its own cells and produces antibodies against them. In MS tests reveal the specific antibodies attacking the myelin cover of the nerve fibers.
The term multiple sclerosis (MS) comes from the multiple areas of scarring (sclerosis) that represent many patches of demyelination in the nervous system. Communication between the brain and other parts of the body is disrupted. It is an unpredictable disease and its symptoms may mysteriously occur and then disappear.
The pathogenesis of MS remains unknown. Although inflammation, demyelination and axonal injury are all involved, the primary pathogenic process is not clear. On-the-job exposure to organic solvent, heavy metals and toxins may increase one's risk of developing MS. There are numerous testimonials supporting the replacement of the common dental mercury (amalgam) filling in MS patients with drastic improvement in their health status.
Infection with a bacteria known as C. pneumoniae may increase the risk of developing MS. Recently, a new microbe, named Nanobacteria, has come under suspicion as a trigger for MS, as well as other illnesses such as heart disease, diabetes, arthritis, and kidney stones.
Viruses have long been studied for their relationship to MS. Recent research in Norway proposed a trigger connection between exposure to a virus such as Epstein-Barr at a critical age - between thirteen and twenty - and the development of the disease. Immunization with the synthetic hepatitis B vaccine may also be associated with an increased risk of developing MS. The measles virus has also been implicated. http://www.u-ok.net/multiple_sclerosis.html
