Multiple Sclerosis

Multiple sclerosis (MS) is thought to be an autoimmune disease in which the body’s own immune system mistakenly attacks normal tissues of the body. In MS, these attacks are aimed at the myelin in the Central Nervous System (CNS).

MS varies from person to person so there is no ‘standard’ set of symptoms for MS. However we know that common symptoms of MS include numbness or tingling in various parts of the body, weakness of one or more parts of the body, walking difficulties, dizziness, fatigue, visual blurring, and occasionally double vision.

Multiple sclerosis is often difficult to diagnose. This is because there is no single test or finding on the examination that makes the diagnosis, and because the disorder varies from person to person. In most cases there is a history of neurological symptoms that come and go over years.

Multiple Sclerosis Treatment

After a thorough medical history and complete physical evaluation, the Pain Institute team develops an individualized care plan to meet the patient’s specific needs. In addition to elements recommended by each member of the Pain Institute team, a care plan also may include specific components requested by the patient, family members or a family doctor.
