Multiple Sclerosis & Neuro-Immunology Q & A
What is multiple sclerosis and neuro-immunology?
The central and peripheral nervous systems are vulnerable to immunologic attacks. MS is one of the most prevalent neuro-immunology conditions.
Multiple sclerosis (MS) is a chronic disease that affects the central nervous system, consisting of your brain, spinal cord, and optic nerves. When you have MS, damage to the central nervous system interrupts the way your brain and spinal cord communicate with the rest of your body.
What are the symptoms of multiple sclerosis?
MS symptoms vary from person to person, depending on the type and location of the nerves affected. Signs and symptoms of MS may include:
- Chronic pain
- Numbness or tingling in the arms, legs, face, or body
- Muscle weakness
- Spasticity, or muscle stiffness and spasms
- Vision problems
- Difficulty walking
- Dizziness and vertigo
- Bladder problems
- Bowel problems
- Sexual dysfunction
People with MS also often experience cognitive changes, such as difficulty remembering and paying attention, and emotional changes, including depression and mood swings.
How is MS diagnosed?
At the moment, there’s no specific test or physical symptom that confirms an MS diagnosis. The team at Bromley Neurology PC uses various lab tests and diagnostic procedures to rule out other conditions that could cause similar symptoms.
Ultimately, your physician may need to order a spinal tap to evaluate your spinal fluid for proteins and inflammatory cells caused by MS.
How is MS treated?
Your doctor at Bromley Neurology PC creates a customized treatment plan to address your specific needs. Your treatment plan could include:
- Infusion therapy
- Physical or occupational therapy
- Nutrition and supplement advice
- Complementary therapies
