Multiple sclerosis, often referred to as MS, comes with a variety of symptoms that may indicate the condition is present. These symptoms manifest themselves in different degrees depending on what part of the brain is being affected and how far the condition has progressed. A person can experience symptoms ranging from mild to severe, lasting days, weeks, or even months. They may come and go, or they may be chronic and persistent. What are some of the symptoms to look for with MS?
If a person feels that he can relate to some of the symptoms in the above list, it is important for him not to ignore the signs that are there. It may be hard to admit that a problem is going on, particularly something as serious as multiple sclerosis. However, seeing some of these symptoms does not necessarily mean one has MS. A number of tests will be done to rule out other conditions. It is vital that a person is totally honest with his doctor. It is also a good idea to be open with loved ones as they can provide the support needed during this time.
Often, multiple sclerosis and the symptoms associated with it have to do with a malfunction of the nervous system. This can happen due to a small misalignment in the upper neck vertebrae. These bones have the job of protecting the brainstem and spinal cord. However, once they move out of place, they can actually put pressure on the brainstem leading to problems with the signals being sent to and from the brain and body.
At Premier Family Wellness, we use a gentle technique that encourages these bones to move back into their proper positions. We do not pop or force the bones of the neck into place. This gentle approach allows the healing process of the body to take over and repair the damage done. MS patients may see a notable difference in their suffering after getting this problem corrected.
