Multiple sclerosis is an auto immune disease affecting the nervous system. In multiple sclerosis, NEURON, the structural and functional unit of nervous system is damaged. The myelin sheath which covers the neuron is broken at various points and this leads to disturbed transmission of messages. The messages to and from the brain and spinal cord are not carried smoothly and thus, pathology develops. Signs and symptoms of MS depend on the number, amount and area of damage to the neurons. The presenting complaints vary from physical problems like joint pain, stiffness and muscle weakness to psychiatric ailments like slow thinking, lack of concentration and depression. The disease is characterized by frequent relapses and remissions.

What Causes Multiple Sclerosis?

The exact cause of MS is still not known. It is a disease of nervous system effecting brain and spinal cord. Multiple Sclerosis leads to destruction of the myelin sheath which is a covering of the neurons. Several scars develop  on the effected neurons due to damage of the myelin sheath and this leads to disturbed transmission of signals. Scientists believe that MS is caused by a combination of environmental and genetic factors. Genes on chromosome 6 are responsible for this disorder.  A variety of viruses have been linked to MS, including Epstein-Barr but it is still not confirmed. Multiple sclerosis is common in people who reside away from the equator. This disease has a female preponderance and can attack anytime between 15 to 50 years of age. It is proved that smoking is a serious risk factor for Multiple Sclerosis.


Multiple sclerosis has a variety of symptoms which vary in presentation, intensity and relapse in different individuals. The clinical signs and symptoms vary according to the affected area of nervous system and damage to the neuron. The initial symptoms are usually the same in most patients like chronic numbness and weakness of parts (mostly one sided), sensations like tingling and pins. Apart from this blurred vision, bladder problems and psychiatric disorders may develop later.

Major Symptoms of Multiple sclerosis

Numbness and tingling- This is on of the first symptoms experienced by patients. Sensations of pins or numbness are felt on the face and extremities. Along with this electric current like sensation on the back specially on bending the neck (Lhermitte's Sign) is also very common. Spasticity and weakness - Stiffness of parts and feeling of fatigue are common symptoms of MS.

Gait Problems-Trouble in walking due to lack of coordination and stiffness of muscle is not infrequent.
Vision Problems- Blurred vision, poor contrast or color vision, and pain on eye movement are few common symptoms of MS.
Bladder and Bowel problems- Bladder dysfunction and loss of control over bowels is common in Multiple sclerosis. Patients may suffer from constipation as well.
Pain- Chronic pain along with stiffness is common in more than 55 percent patients.
Cognitive Changes- Ability to learn, concentrate, solve problems etc is disturbed in MS patients depending upon the area of nerve damage.
Emotional changes- Irritation, mood swings, depression can be either due to Multiple Sclerosis or because of the stress of disease.
Less common symptoms of Multiple sclerosis.

Less Common Symptoms of Multiple Sclerosis

The less common symptoms of Multiple Sclerosis are listed below. These symptoms are not present in all patients but may effect some people because of damaged area of the nervous system.

  • Slurred speech
  • Difficulty in swallowing
  • Tremors and seizures
  • breathing trouble
  • Hearing loss

Apart from the symptoms listed above patients with MS can have any or every symptom depending on the location and amount of damage to the brain and spinal cord.

Diagnosis of Multiple Sclerosis

MS is diagnosed by following tests, although a clear cut diagnosis is often difficult even if the tests are positive. Thus, clinical co-relation is must.
MRI- Swelling in deeper parts of brain and spinal cord in MRI suggest MS but it is common in diabetes and hypertension of aged.
Spinal Tap- Examination of lumber fluid is done in some cases.
Homeopathy and Management of MS- as MS is an autoimmune disease with unpredictable course, relapses and fate, conventional medicine does not have much to offer. Homeopathy can be a great line of treatment for such patients. We have a wide range of medicines which affect the nervous system and simultaneously manage physical symptoms like pain and stiffness. Deep acting constitutional drugs improve the quality of life of individuals suffering from MS and decrease the probability of future attacks. Along with Homeopathy, proper physical therapy can do wonders for Multiple Sclerosis patients.

    Is MS contagious or inherited?
    • Shivani VermaApr 18 2016 4:39PMReply
      As per the latest research, MS is not contagious but it is a genetic disorder and has a tendency to run in families.

    Homepathy consultancy available anytime. Its a boon. First of all homeopathy as u all know has no side effects secondly this concept of online consultancy kills the lead time of the patient to drive to the hospital and wait in the queue to get advise. My wife was been treated by Dr. Shivani and trust me guys the treatment was so smooth and easy even though most of the it was verbal but effective.
