Early Symptoms Of Multiple Scierosis

It is worth mentioning that early symptoms of multiple sclerosis take place between 20-40 years. The symptoms may also be classified as common or uncommon. Therefore, the common symptoms include numbness, loss of balance, problem or difficulties with sight, tingling and one or more limbs may fail to function due to lack of energy. On the other hand, the uncommon symptoms include slurred speech, poor coordination, difficulties with cognition, and untimely paralysis.

However, as the disease continues to affect the person, other symptoms take place such as fatigue, muscle spasms, alterations in thinking or even perception, heat sensitivity including sexual disturbances.

As indicated above, fatigue is among the common symptoms of multiple sclerosis. It basically takes place in the afternoon (mid) and may incorporate heightened muscle weakness, drowsiness, mental fatigue and sleepiness. In the same vein, the feeling of exhaustion would not be related to the degree of work undertaken. In fact, most victims of MS experience increased fatigue even after having a good sleep during the night.

In the case of heat sensitivity the patients become worse when exposed to heat, for instance, taking a hot shower. The other symptom is spasticity where muscle spasms become common. This impacts on the legs' muscles as well as arms; this may also cause more problems in the event the person attempts to move about the muscles freely.

Dizziness is where the patients experience some off-balance moments including being lightheaded. The other symptom associated with dizziness would be that the person may feel as if everything around him is spinning; this, according to the medics has been referred to as the vertigo. These are damages caused in the complex nerve pathways whose vital role is to create good coordination framework between vision and other processes of the brain.

Impaired thinking is when an MS patient experiences difficulties with thinking; about fifty per cent of persons with MS experience thinking problems. This may refer to reduced concentration, slow process in their thinking as well as fading memory.

The problem of sight commonly affects MS patients. This problem reportedly affects 55 per cent of persons suffering from MS. The outcome may be that the person gets a blurring sight although majority of MS patients do not become blind.The other problem is the feeling of abnormal sensations since many people get such experiences. This includes itching effect, stabbing, and burning among others.

A person with MS symptoms may have other challenges in swallowing and giving a speech. Damage nerves are perceived to be the cause of such complications. The person may also experience tremors and inability to walk.
