Most of the diseases or disorders affect human body exhibiting symptoms that facilitate their recognition.Multiple Sclerosis (MS) also displays its signs with multiple symptoms like visual disturbances, muscle spasms, fatigue, loss of sensation and many others.
Basically affecting the nerves of the brain and the spinal cord, Multiple Sclerosis is a disease in which the nerves of the central nervous system degenerate. The insulation to the nerves is provided by myelin and these improves the conduction of impulses along the nerves greatly helping in the communication between brain and spinal cord cells with the other parts of the body. However the degeneration of myelin affects this communication as the electrical impulses that travel along these nerves decelerate. As more nerves get affected the person affected starts feeling the interference in functions controlled by the nervous system such as speech, walking, writing, memory and vision.
Multiple Sclerosis is commonly diagnosed in the age group of 20 – 40 years, however can occur at any age. This is a commonly found problem in women than in men. It is understood that it may occur as a result of a combination of genetic, infectious and environmental factors. The very common symptoms seen in a person affected with MS may resemble the symptoms of any other nervous disease or disorders. These may be problems in coordination in making movements, problems in walking, numbness, fatigue, double vision, rapid eye movements, muscle spasms, tingling or pain, burning sensation in arms and legs, slurred speech, unable to concentrate, dizziness, depression and many more.
The Problems like Multiple Sclerosis do call for medical intervention and treatment and the most important part of a treatment is finding a thorough and good neurologist. As there is no definite cure for this; it involves therapies to find some relief and hence is highly important to find an experienced neurologist who can guide you through this phase in getting back to your normal life. And in such a scenario, Dr. Gupte’s Spine & Brain Clinic headed by Dr. Avneesh Gupte is one of the best hospitals to approach. With its team of doctors who are highly competent and dedicated to their profession, MS may receive a full and complete treatment.
Doctors at this hospital say they have commonly found block in the neck veins (Internal Jugular Vein) and spine veins (Azygous vein) in the Multiple Sclerosis patients. As there is no known cure for MS now they believe in the liberation surgery and stem cell treatment. Although the degenerated cells cannot be reverted back, the doctors have found that this liberation surgery has worked wonders for many of their patients.
