MULTIPLE SCLEROSIS - DESCRIPTION


Multiple sclerosis is a typical civilizational, slow-progressing disease of the central nervous system that was unknown in ancient peoples and was probably caused by diet. The actual cause of the disease is unknown. It is assumed that due to the disorder of the immune system, the body produces too many antibodies that destroy the spinal cord. At the same time, myelin, which wraps the nerves of the spinal cord and allows impulses to be sent, is destroyed and calcification (sclerosis) occurs. A family explanation is also a possible explanation. The disease usually occurs between the ages of 20 and 40 and is more common in women than in men.

The most common initial symptoms are paresthesias of the extremities, torso or one side of the face, then weakness or clumsiness of the arm or leg, and visual disturbances such as partial blindness or pain in one eye, blurred vision or scotomas (visual field loss). Other early symptoms may include squinting (weakness of the eye muscles) that causes diplopia (double vision), transient weakness, fatigue or stiffness in one or more extremities, minor gait disturbances, difficulty controlling the bladder, dizziness, or mild emotional disturbances. All of these symptoms and signs indicate central nervous system involvement, and may be present for months and years before diagnosis is made. Fever can aggravate the symptoms. There are also psychological changes in terms of apathy, depression or euphoria, and a lack of judgment. Motor disorders are manifested by unbalanced gait and trembling, irregular movements, and sensory disorders in terms of loss of sensation of pain, temperature, numbness, etc. In advanced disease when the spinal cord is also affected, urinary and stool incontinence may occur (inability to hold) . The course of the disease is varied and unpredictable. It is characterized by changes in exacerbation (exacerbation phase) and remission (calming phase) of the disease. In the beginning, remissions can last for months and years, even more than 10 years. In patients who have frequent attacks of the disease, especially if the disease begins in middle age, the course can be markedly accelerated and lead to the development of disability in the short term.
