Ageing is considered, by many, to be a disease, but is ageing with multiple sclerosis more complicated than other forms of getting old?
Visual deficits can give a better idea of the underlying problem. MS is associated with optic neuritis and nystagmus whereas the elderly tend to have cataracts, presbyopia, macular degeneration and glaucoma.
Known as the powerhouse of the cell, mitochondria are the force behind many of our life functions and critical bilogical functions.
The number of mitochondria found in a cell is a good indicator of the cell’s rate of metabolic activity. Cells that are metabolically active, or energy-hungry, such as brain cells, have many mitochondria.
If you have Multiple Sclerosis you will need to become familiar with terms such as paresthesia or numbness in the hands and face.
Paresthesia is the clinical name given to unusual sensations of the extremities. A burning or prickling sensation is felt in the hands, forearms, legs or feet. Occasionally, paresthesia will be felt as numbness or skin crawling in the face or scalp.
Charcot’s Neuralgic Triad encapsulates the three most common early symptoms of multiple sclerosis or MS in the French neurologists opinion.
One common trio of multiple sclerosis symptoms is called Charcots Neuralgic Triad. And it includes dysarthria which is difficulty with or unclear speech, nystagmus or involuntary eye movement and intention tremor.
Of the many essential functions the human body must perform flawlessly nd repeatedly autophagy renews our cellular structure.
Another study in mice has shown that a lack of autophagy can be very harmful. When autophagy is not fine-tuning our bodies, you may see weight gain, lethargy, higher cholesterol, and impaired brain function.
The Sweet Smell of MS is a somewhat cheesie introduction to a very serious topic. How we can identify disease from the smell they emit.
Our bodies are constantly emitting volatile substances. These substances are carried on our breath and exude from every pore in our skin. This chemical emission varies depending on age, diet and illness.
Is poor circulation a symptom of multiple sclerosis or are the symptoms of MS caused by your possible circulatory problems.
Moving the blood around our bodies is the responsibility of our circulatory system. At the centre of the circulatory system is the heart. Blood is pumped by the heart through a vast network of veins, arteries and capillaries.
