MS affects the brain, spinal cord, and optic nerves in your eyes. Symptoms over time can create problems with vision, balance, muscle control, tingling, numbness, weakness, cognitive problems and hinder other body functions. Individuals with the same disease can be effected differently as everyone is chemically and unique.
It is an autoimmune disease in which the body’s immune system attacks it’s own tissues. In MS, the immune system malfunctions and destroys the myelin (fatty substance) that coats and protects nerve fibers in the brain and affects the central nervous system. This causes inflammation and further damaging the mylein, the myelin sheath is essential for proper function of the nervous system.
You can get tested for MS with your doctor by blood tests, lumber puncture, MRI.
Signs of MS attack: Increased fatigue, tingling, numbness, depression, visual changes, pain, tremors.
North American have the highest rate of Multiple Sclerosis, Canada being the highest in the world. Estimated 1 in every 340 Canadians living with this disease according to the MS society.
If MS is an autoimmune disease that let’s understand the theory about why autoimmune disease happened. There are many theories, one is that the protein that the body no longer recognizes the change because of oxidation when sugar molecule, heavy metal ion, virus or bacteria particle gets attached to the protein. Common oxidizer is glucose, when the protein is oxidized, it changes its shape and looks like an foreign invader. This is when the immune cells attack. Another way the immune system can attack is when viruses and bacteria share some of the same amino acids sequences that are in our cellular protein in order to hide from immune cells, when immune cells recognize that an infection is happening and the immune system begins to attack those infection there fore “self” attack begins.
