Multiple sclerosis (MS)
Multiple sclerosis (MS) occurs when the immune system attacks the myelin sheath that surrounds nerve fibers, leading to inflammation and damage to the myelin and nerve fibers. Symptoms can vary widely but may include fatigue, muscle weakness, coordination and balance issues, vision problems, sensory disturbances, and cognitive impairments. The cause of Multiple sclerosis (MS) is not fully clear, but it is believed to be a combination of genetic and environmental factors. There is no cure for multiple sclerosis (MS), but treatments are available to manage symptoms and slow disease progression.
Multiple sclerosis (MS) Treatment
Multiple sclerosis (MS) treatment options include disease-modifying therapies, symptomatic treatments, rehabilitation therapies, plasma exchange, stem cell transplantation, and complementary and alternative therapies. Disease-modifying therapies work to slow the progression of the disease, while symptomatic treatments target specific symptoms of MS. Rehabilitation therapies, such as physical therapy and speech therapy, can help improve mobility and speech problems. Plasma exchange and stem cell transplantation are more aggressive treatments that may be considered in severe cases. Complementary and alternative therapies may also be used but their efficacy is not well established. It’s important to work with a healthcare provider to determine the best treatment plan for MS.
