A diagnosis of multiple sclerosis or M.S. is one which many people dread because we associate it with slow and progressive deterioration into disability. In fact, only a minority of those with M.S. will suffer its most crippling effects and there is much you can do to stay healthy and lead a normal life and reverse the cause of the condition so one can return to better health.
M.S. occurs as a result of damage to the nerve fibres of the central nervous system (the brain and spinal cord). This happens when the sheath of fatty tissue or myelin which insulates the nerves is attacked and becomes inflamed. Different people will have different symptoms, depending on which nerves have been damaged. The most common age of diagnosis is late 20’s to mid 30’s.
Early symptoms often include tingling sensations or numbness which may affect a hand or foot. Other common symptoms are blurred or double vision, weakness or clumsiness of a limb, giddiness or lack of balance, disproportionate fatigue and the need to pass water frequently or urgently. Sometimes these symptoms simply disappear, never to be experienced again, but they may recur and worsen in a series of “attacks” that may end in serious disability.
At Lifeworks most cases of MS can be improved by finding the reason why this condition occurred in the first place. At our Clearwater Clinic we do this using very precise diagnostic testing and then setting out a course of treatment. For more information call 727 466 6789.
