The Multiple Sclerosis Neurological Disorder or MS Neurological Disorder, as the name implies, is caused when Multiple Sclerosis afflicts a person. This happens when the body’s immune system turns against myelin, the protective sheath over the nerves, and destroys or damages it. Myelin helps in the fast conduction of signals from the brain to the nerves. When the myelin is damaged, the signals become slow or gets disruptive. Without its protective coating the nerves eventually wither away. Some amount of regeneration does take place, but usually it is insufficient and does not find the correct muscle mass to attach to. When the nerves are damaged due to the loss of myelin, the symptoms of Multiple Sclerosis start showing up.


Symptoms of Multiple Sclerosis Neurological Disorder


The symptoms of MS Neurological Disorder do not follow a predictable path, thereby making it impossible for any two patients to have the same symptoms. The common symptoms associated with MS Neurological Disorder are blurred vision, double vision, fatigue, numbness in the limbs, balance and coordination problems, bladder and bowel dysfunction, sexual dysfunction, emotional disorder and a disruption of the cognitive functions.


Diagnosis of MS Neurological Disorder


To arrive at the correct diagnosis of Multiple Sclerosis Neurological Disorder, doctors look for damage in two separate areas of the central nervous system. They also look to confirm that the damage occurred at least a month apart. Finally, there are tests to rule out all the other possibilities. Other important factors include identifying the place of birth, family history, besides other evaluation tests. These include a Visual Potential test to record the nervous system’s electrical response to certain pathways. Blood test and Cerebrospinal Fluid Analysis are also carried out to identify Multiple Sclerosis Neurological Disorder.


Treatment for MS Neurological Disorder


Although there are no definite cures available for treating Multiple Sclerosis Neurological Disorder, effective strategies exist to modify the disease in order to prevent further development and to improve the functions, to help the patient lead a better life. A prime area that needs to be addressed for a person with MS Neurological Disorders to manage the symptoms with strategies that include self-care techniques, physical therapy and use of assistive devices. This involves making a lifestyle change to cope with the limitations the disease brings about. Often counselling may be required to prevent the person from becoming depressed.
