Multiple Sclerosis Questions and Answers

When a person starts having various symptoms for long periods of time and stumbles upon multiple sclerosis, the question “how do I know if I have multiple sclerosis?” arises. Then the research begins.

MS has a multitude of symptoms – over 50. The most common symptoms are: unexplained fatigue, clumsiness, unexplained weakness in one’s legs and/or arms, language skills problems, slurred speech, troubles focusing and concentrating on things,  depression,  aggression and/or lack of inhibition or other inappropriate social behaviors,  incontinence or urinary retention, vision problems.

Now, if these symptoms are present, then you should check with a neurologist ( MS is considered a neurological condition) and have an MRI of your brain taken. Due to demylination, there will be lesions present in your brain, lesions which are easily noticeable on an MRI.

The diagnosis is made based on your symptoms, MRI results and medical history. However, it should be said that there are at least a dozen of symptoms that MS shares with other conditions – some autoimmune, some not. No matter the case, don’t expect the diagnosis to be immediate, as diagnosing MS is hard.

I have had my hand go numb 4 times today all in about 2 hours... I have to keep clenching and unclenching my hand. Is it normal? Or should I go to get it checked just incase?

I took an online test and answered yes to almost all questions regarding the symptoms of MS. A neurologist thought I have CMT disease because of the shape of my feet. I am diabetic so I have vision problems and neuropathy. But I also have sensations in my head, muscle tightness and cramping when sleeping, urinary and bowel problems, and extremely tired by the end of the workday. I don't know why I haven't been diagnosed with anything. My symptoms are elevating. I am so off balance now I need to use a cane. I have 9 referrals to go to 9 different specialists for 9 different symptoms! It's crazy! Why can't my doctor put two and two together?

I think I also my have ms, i am experencing somewhat of the same issues except for the bowel movement. I've spent numerous of money going back and front between the Er and the Doctors Office and the only thig that the doctor
could tell me was that I have cluster headaches. I still experience leg cramps so severe that I can barely stand on it. I have severe tremors at night and sometimes I feel like my heart stops during my sleep. I also get these sharp pains that runs through my head. Sometimes I feel like I am not going to be around long to take care of my kids. I wish someone could diagnose me so that I can feel better and feel like my normal self again.

When you post your account, tell people to follow you on Instagram.
Zolciak Biermann immediately requested that followers report the fraudulent account.

Countless bloggers and organizations creates new lists
and post them at the start of the period, pushing supporters to provide new shots

This design is wicked! You most certainly know how to keep a reader amused.

Between your wit and your videos, I was almost moved to start my own blog (well, almost...HaHa!) Wonderful job.
I really loved what you had to say, and more than that, how you
presented it. Too cool!
