Multiple sclerosis (MS) is a chronic neurological condition that results in the immune system attacking the protective coating around nerves in the central nervous system, leading to inflammation and damage. This can cause a range of symptoms, such as muscle weakness, coordination difficulties, vision issues, tingling or numbness in the limbs, and problems with thinking, memory, and mood. The exact cause of MS is unknown, but a combination of genetic and environmental factors is believed to play a role.

 If a person is experiencing symptoms like numbness, tingling, or weakness in one or more limbs, vision problems, coordination difficulties, fatigue, dizziness, bladder control or sexual function issues, cognitive changes, or mood changes, they should consider seeing a neurologist. A neurologist can perform diagnostic tests to determine if a person has MS and what type of MS they have. They can also provide appropriate treatment and management options, such as medications and other therapies, to help manage symptoms and slow the progression of the disease. The neurologist can also monitor the progression of the condition and adjust the treatment plan as needed. Consult Dr. Anand, Neurophysician, in case of any such symptoms for early diagnosis and treatment which can help prevent long-term complications and disability.
