Multiple sclerosis

Multiple sclerosis is a disease of the central nervous system, which includes the brain and spinal cord. Brain oversees the functioning of our body by sending electrical impulses through nerve fibbers. Nerve fibbers are sheathed by fat tissue called myelin. There is no known cause of multiple sclerosis. Studies show that multiple sclerosis is an autoimmune disease, which causes the body to recognise its own cells as foreign tissue and start to destroy them.

In cases of multiple sclerosis body starts to produce antibodies that attack myelin, which leads to its decay. Symptoms are various: visual problems, numbness, tingling sensation in limbs, obfuscation, dizziness and memory loss. In severe cases patient suffers from muscle weakness or myasthenia, uncoordinated movements, balance disorder, trembling and ambiguous speech.

As a disease multiple sclerosis is unpredictable. Individuals can live for years without deterioration of symptoms, while in others deterioration leads to sever invalidity. There is no known cure for multiple sclerosis. There are various treatments that reduce frequency and difficulty of the attacks. But even those treatments include medications and psychosocial aid that are offered in special programs in our health resorts. The goal is to slow down the progression of the disease and preserve the quality of patient’s life.
