Multiple Sclerosis Symptoms

Multiple Sclerosis Symptoms
Multiple sclerosis symptoms generally occur in people aged between 20 and 40 years. Most times a patient may be suspected of Multiple Sclerosis if it has two or more symptoms of the disease. But even so, these symptoms are not always sufficient to diagnose the disease.

Multiple Sclerosis diagnosis is done through a series of MRI's and analyzes of cerebrospinal fluid.

Signs of early Multiple Sclerosis

The most common symptoms of onset multiple sclerosis are:
    -motor deficits such as weakness, stiffness, tendency to drop things in hand, feeling of heaviness in the usual movements, clumsiness or clumsiness, lack of coordination of movements;
    -visual disturbances such as blurred vision, dark spots or blurred, pain in the eye (especially their movements), double vision;
    -optic neuritis, which is a sudden loss of vision, accompanied by eye pain is a fairly common manifestation of disease onset, occurring in about 23% of people with multiple sclerosis;
    sensory symptoms such as tingling, pricking needle, needles, a tightening band around the torso or legs, feel the electrical impulses moving along the back, drain through the legs.

Advanced signs of Multiple Sclerosis

As multiple sclerosis progresses, symptoms may become more severe and may include:
    -increased motor deficits, may become so severe that walking becomes difficult, without excluding travel with a wheelchair be used periodically or permanently;
    -urinary incontinence or, more rarely, an inability to urinate;
    -constipation and other bowel disorders;
    -cognitive alterations, such as memory loss, difficulty concentrating, decreased attention;
    -emotional and behavioral disorders, such as depression, anxiety and anger.

Signs of accelerated rise of Multiple Sclerosis

Events that may indicate a more severe evolution of multiple sclerosis are:-frequent relapses during the first years of disease onset;
    -incomplete recovery between episodes;
    -motor difficulties arose early, persistent, significantly affect movement ability;
    -multiple injuries and "silent", which can be distinguished by MRI (magnetic resonance investigation), even though these injuries do not appear to be the cause of existing symptoms at some point.

There are cases where the patient may be asymptomatic. Most patients with multiple sclerosis live for decades. Although often those who are affected by Multiple sclerosis develop different motor disabilities, illness rarely threatening their life and, usually doesn't reduce the natural duration of the existence of the person concerned.

In most patients there is a type of relapsing-remitting disease type, after about a decade, about half of them will have secondary progressive development. Primary progressive multiple sclerosis occurs in a small number of people in all those with this condition. Some patients have only mild episodes with complete healing. This form is called benign multiple sclerosis.
