What Is Multiple Sclerosis?
Multiple sclerosis is an autoimmune disease that attacks the central nervous system. This is a condition in which the body begins to attack itself. The Myelin sheath becomes compromised when the body begins to attack it. This brings on a huge host of problems. Since the central nervous system controls a wide variety of body functions, this disease can paralyze an individual’s life. Some of the symptoms that result from multiple sclerosis are the following: blindness, incontinence, leg pain, mind fog, throat tightness, and muscle spasms.
What Are the Typical Treatments for Multiple Sclerosis?
When an individual is first diagnosed with multiple sclerosis, she may decide to go to a neurologist. Neurologist believe that multiple sclerosis is a disease that is incurable, so they only treat symptoms. This means that a person will be exposed to injections, chemotherapy, and other strong medicines that are given to suppress a person’s immune system. Unfortunately, individuals who have taken this route have only gone on a steady decline. At best, these medications can help ease some of their symptoms, and at worst, these medications can make their symptoms even worse.
