MS Vibration or Multiple Sclerosis Vibration is often one of the earliest symptoms of Multiple Sclerosis. The major reason why people head to a doctor when this occurs is the common knowledge that such a tingling or vibrating sensation is often neurological. This comes about when there is damage to myelin, the protective sheath that covers a nerve. The primary job of myelin is to conduct signals from the brain to the nerves. When the myelin is damaged, it is not able to pass messages from the brain to the nerves. The body tries to regenerate the damaged myelin, but it does not find the correct muscle mass. Due to which the nerves eventually wither away resulting in multiple sclerosis. The symptoms associated with multiple sclerosis are not predictable and vary from person to person. One of the symptoms, common to a large extent for all patients, is a feeling of numbness, tingling, buzzing or vibrating referred to as MS Vibration.
Effects of Multiple Sclerosis Vibration
This feeling is common to about 90% of all patients suffering from multiple sclerosis, but may differ from case to case depending on the severity of the disease. However, almost all the patients experience some form of numbness or tingling. The Multiple Sclerosis Vibration sensation is caused by lesions on the spinal cord or the brain and is more intense than what a normal touch would result in. A Multiple Sclerosis Vibration can occur spontaneously or be triggered by touch. It can occur anywhere in the body and start as a tingling sensation in the hands or feet, leading up to the core. MS Vibration can cause a limitation to the part of the body where it occurs, for example if it occurs in the feet, it may cause problems in walking and in the genitals it may cause a sexual dysfunction.
Treatments for Multiple Sclerosis Vibration
While MS Vibration is passing in nature and does not cause significant disability, some instances may affect the quality of life, therefore making medication quite necessary to bring a lasting relief. Very often, Multiple Sclerosis Vibration may require a lifestyle change to accommodate or adjust to the limitations that comes with it. There are also alternate treatments, like massage therapy but these are not medically approved, even though there are claims that it helps the patient to overcome this syndrome.
