Multiple Sclerosis Treatment


Multiple sclerosis (MS) is a potentially disabling disorder associated with the central nervous system, the brain & spinal cord. In multiple sclerosis, the immune system attacks the protective sheath of myelin that surrounds nerve fibers, causing problems with communication between the brain and other parts of the body. Ultimately, the disease can cause permanent damage and nerve deterioration.

Symptoms of Multiple sclerosis

The signs and symptoms of MS may differ from person to person depending on the complications the person has in the affected nerve fibers. The symptoms include:

  • Numbness or weakness in one or more limbs of the body, including in your legs and trunk
  • Electric-shock feelings occurring while moving the neck, particularly if the person bends the neck forward
  • Tremor or lack of co-ordination and unsteady walking style
  • Blurry vision pr prolonged double vision and in some cases, partial or full vision loss

There are other symptoms in case of MS include:

  • Slurred speech
  • Fatigue
  • Dizziness
  • Burning itch pain in some parts of the body
  • Problem during intercourse, bowel and irregularity in bladder function

Causes of Multiple sclerosis

The experts are still not very certain about actual cause of multiple sclerosis and the research in that regard is going on for some time. But there are some factors that trigger MS:

  • Getting exposed to some viruses or bacteria
  • Environmental effect that means the surrounding where you live
  • Being a autoimmune disease, it displays the functioning of your immune system ( immune cells sometimes mistakenly attack healthy cells )
  • Gene mutations or hereditary effect or family history


Multiple sclerosis does not cure. However, treatment can help in speeding up the recovery from seizures, change the course of the disease, and manage symptoms. Interferon-beta medications are mostly prescribed to treat MS and are injected under the skin or into the muscle. These drugs will reduce the frequency & severity of relapses. It has its share of side effects.
