    It’s Multiple Sclerosis Day! All that you need to know about this disorder

    Back in 2009, the MS International Federation named the 30th of May as Multiple Sclerosis Day.

    Multiple sclerosis is often thought to be a hereditary disorder but it is an autoimmune disorder in which the immune system attacks the nervous center by damaging the myelin sheath, which is a protective layer wrapped around the neurons.

    Causing permanent damage to the nervous system and it loses the ability to receive or send a signal to other parts of the body.

    This condition is detected in people in the age group that ranges between 20-40 years and it is diagnosed three times more in females than in males.

    However, when the treatment and the cure of this disorder remain undiscovered. There are ways to treat the symptoms that may help patients to recover after some time but the signs may reappear if the person does not take extra care of him or herself.

    On this very special day, we would like to enlighten you about the causes, symptoms, and treatments of Multiple Sclerosis.

    What are the causes behind this disorder?

    Experts say that a virus may enter your body and may affect your immune system in a way that it starts to attack your own body – in this case, your central nervous system.

    The immune system wears off the myelin sheath, a fatty and insulating substance that covers the neurons, and the nerve fibers are left exposed.

    The electric signals may weaken as they travel through the neuron to and from the brain. This reduces one’s perceptibility and he may not feel or act upon any stimuli in the external or internal environment.

    What are the symptoms of Multiple Sclerosis?

    A person diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis may suffer from chronic pain, spasms, seizures, memory loss and may become paralyzed.

    Multiple sclerosis may also weaken muscularly and balance coordination. Due to the weakness of neural signals traveling through their neurons, they may also feel numb when they touch their face.

    Their visual perceptions may also weaken due to the inflammation of the optic nerve, thus suddenly weakening their eyesight or leading to a disability.

    They also suffer from bladder and they may urinate after short intervals and continuously around the day, they may also face bowel problems like diarrhea and constipation.

    How are people with Multiple Sclerosis treated?

    It can be demotivating for people when they learn they have this disorder but hey! That doesn’t mean that you cannot live a happy and healthy life.

    People with Multiple sclerosis are also suggested to maintain a healthy diet, with all the nutrients that are required for the growth and development of the body.

    They need to hydrate themselves as much as they can and they also need to refrain from eating something containing an excessive amount of fat as that is considered as an unhealthy element – exclude that from your diet.
