5 Things You Should Know about Multiple Sclerosis

Recovery After SurgeryMultiple Sclerosis (MS) is an autoimmune disease of the nervous system that currently has no cure.  The destruction of the myelin sheath, a protective layer that surrounds the nerve cells, obstructs communication between the brain and the rest of the body.  This results in symptoms such as muscle weakness, trouble with coordination and balance, numbness on one side of the body at a time, slurred speech, double vision or partial/complete loss of vision, tremors, dizziness and bladder/bowel malfunction.  A-1 Home Care highlights some facts about MS:

  • Women are 2.5 times more likely to get MS than men
  • MS is not contagious or hereditary
  • Symptoms vary widely from one individual to another
  • Research suggests that MS is more common in colder regions of the United States, Canada and Europe. Warmer, tropical climates are associated with low risk for MS
  • Common triggers for MS attacks include sun exposure, fever, stress and hot baths
