Multiple Sclerosis From Top to Bottom

MULTIPLE SCLEROSIS FROM TOP TO0 BOTTOM Getting the Complete Picture Multiple sclerosis is a neurodegenerative and inflammatory immune condition that causes problems throughout the body. Pinpoint the disease's effects from head to to toe. MS on the Brain Visions of MS MS on the Tongue Getting a Pulse on MS Arm Wrestling with MS Breathing it in Immunity and MS MS and the Reproductive System MS on the Bladder & Bowels MS Bone by Bone, Getting a Leg Up MS: A Joint Venture MS on the Brain MS gradually breaks down the protective cover (myelin sheath) around the nerves. This makes it hard for the brain to communicate to the rest of the body. This can cause dizziness, vertigo, depression and emotional changes, confusion, forgetfulness, andheadache. In some cases, MS can cause tremors, seizures, and other cognitive problems. Visions of MS The degenerative nature of MS does not pass over the eyes. Vision problems are often among the first symptoms of MS and may include serious blurring, eye pain, double vision, and poor contrast. MS on the Tongue As many as 4 in 10 people with MS experience problems with speech at some point in their MS journey. This may include slurring, volume or pitch control, articulation difficulty, and hoarseness. Others may develop nerve damage in the muscles responsible for swallowing, which can cause coughing, choking, and other complications. Getting a Pulse on MS Recent research indicates that women with MS are at an increased risk of cardiovascular problems, such as stroke and heart disease. Arm Wrestling with MS The nerve damage caused by MS often causes problems with hand-eye coordination. It also frequently causes tingling, numbing, or sensations of "pins and needles" in the arms and legs. Breathing it in Weakened trunk muscles and nerve damage along the spinal cord can cause pain, fatigue, inflammation, and even make it difficult to breath. Immunity and MS Multiple Sclerosis is an immune-mediated disease. The body's immune cells attack healthy nerve tissue, although the cause for this is still unknown.Other symptoms of the disease may lead to pneumonia, nutrient deficiencies, and inflammatory conditions. Infections may also lead to MS attacks. DAMAGED NEURON HEALTHY NEURON MS and the Reproductive System Individuals with MS may experience sexual dysfunction due to nerve damage, mobility problems, loss of sensation, and emotional problems. Many people may lose the ability to become aroused or suffer from fatigue, spasticity, or emotional problems that interfere with sexual relationships. MS does not reduce fertility, however, and many women experience a break from MS symptoms during pregnancy. MS on the Bladder & Bowels MS can cause dysfunction in the bladder or bowels in as many as 8 in 10 individuals. People with MS frequently battle bladder infections and urinary tract infections, and some also suffer from upset stomach, diarrhea, or constipation. MS Bone by Bone The skeletal system can suffer due to nutrient deficiencies and inactivity, both of which are common in MS. Extended inactivity can weaken bones and lead to osteoporosis and fragile or brittle bones in people with MS. Getting a Leg Up Nerve damage can affect the gait, making it difficult to walk. Advanced MS may weaken muscles and coordination so significantly that canes or wheelchairs may be necessary. MS: A Joint Venture Nerve and muscle troubles often lead to problems with balance. Coordination problems may also affect an individual's ability to play sports or perform motions that are heavily dependent on footwork.
