You Can't Manage What You Don't Track
What is Multiple Sclerosis?
Multiple Sclerosis (MS) is a chronic, unpredictable autoimmune disease that affects the central nervous system, including the brain, spinal cord and optic nerves. MS can range from being relatively benign to a somewhat debilitating disease that varies in its progress. Specific symptoms and severity vary from person to person. World-wide MS affects about 2.5 million people and within the United States possibly 250,000-350,000 people have MS with an average of 200 people a week being newly diagnosed.
In autoimmune diseases such as MS, the association between the immune system and the body is disrupted when the immune system seems to wrongly identify and declare war on the part of the body (myelin) it no longer recognizes. Through intensive research efforts, scientists are unraveling the complex secrets of the malfunctioning immune system of patients with MS. Learn more about multiple sclerosis as a member of the Symptom Journal.
Causes of Multiple Sclerosis
As with many other autoimmune diseases there is no known specific cause for MS, but there are many theories about what could be the probable cause. Possible factors that might cause multiple sclerosis to develop include: environmental factors, lack of vitamin D, the role of infections, and genetics. Most people experience their first symptoms of MS between the ages of 20 and 40. Some of the risk factors are that women are more likely than men to develop MS, and that MS is more prevalent in temperate climates. More causes, risk factors, and continuing research associated with multiple sclerosis are discussed in the member's section.
Symptoms of Multiple Sclerosis
Just as individuals are unique, Multiple Sclerosis symptoms and the course of those symptoms are also distinctive. People with Multiple Sclerosis usually experience one of four different courses of MS, and each course might be mild, moderate or debilitating. The different courses that MS can take are: relapsing-remitting MS (RRMS), primary-progressive MS (PPMS), secondary-progressive MS (SOMS), and progressive-relapsing MS (PRMS).
In addition, twenty percent of the MS population has a benign form of the disease in which symptoms show little or no progression after the initial attack; these patients remain fully functional. Studies throughout the world are causing investigators to redefine the natural course of the disease. Symptoms may include: visual problems, muscle weakness, fatigue, and speech impediments. An extensive list of symptoms for multiple sclerosis is presented in your Symptom Checklist. Through your Daily Questions you can monitor how your symptoms, treatment, and lifestyle are affecting your health.
