Ways to Reduce
Multiple Sclerosis Symptom of
Weakness on One Side of Body
One of a long list of possible
can include the Multiple Sclerosis symptom of weakness
on one side of the
particular symptom can
mimic the result of having a severe stroke, where one side of the body
is much weaker and less functional than the other side of the body.
Doctors can use additional testing, such as mri tests (or magnetic
resonance imaging testing), retinal scans, spinal tap, etc. to
determine if Multiple Sclerosis is present, instead of the weakness on
one side actually being the result of a severe stroke.
How can this type of MS symptom be a result of MS attacking the body?
Multiple Sclerosis is known to attack the nerves through out the body.
When the MS attacks are severe enough this can often result in ms nerve
It is not totally understood why the symptoms of MS can vary so
much from case to case, but there are a group of symptoms that are
typically associated with Multiple Sclerosis, which can vary in
different combinations and in how severe each symptom of Multiple
Sclerosis may become.
One Multiple Sclerosis
which is seen in many cases of Multiple Sclerosis is the weakness
on one side
body, where one side of the body
is so much weaker than the other side.
As the MS research progresses to try to understand the disease process
of Multiple Sclerosis and to find out more about what might cause or
even help to
resolve many of the problems that are often associated with Multiple
Sclerosis, more conclusions are being drawn on how Multiple Sclerosis
tends to act on the body.
When it comes to the MS symptoms of weakness on one side of
the body, it appears that as
attacks the body, it can tend to target the nerves more often
that are located in the parts of the body that are located along the
more developed pathways of nerves
throughout the body.
For example, if you tend to be right-handed, the right
side of your body has much more developed networks of nerves, since you
tend to use your right hand much more than your left hand to do more of
your daily tasks.
If you are left handed, the left side of your body is much
more developed as far as the network of nerves throughout the left side
of the body.
If you tend to use both hands off and on for
different tasks throughout the day, you may have a mixture of which
parts of the body have better a developed network of nerves.
It appears that whatever it is that attacks the nerves, in many of the
cases of Multiple Sclerosis, it tends to attack the part of the nervous
system that is networked together much better.
To describe this better, let's say that the better developed networks
of nerves are like the super highways that are designed to handle a
larger volume of traffic (cars, trucks, etc.) that allow the traffic to
move at a faster speed.
The less developed parts of our
nervous system are more like the side roads that can't handle as much
traffic and that travel at a slower speed.
The super highways allow a much larger amount of traffic to travel down
the road at a faster speed. The nerves that are more
developed networks of nerves in our bodies allow a larger number of
nerve signals to travel along the nerves at a much faster pace.
If we wanted to drive somewhere, where we had the choice of traveling
to where we are going at a faster speed, so that we could get there
sooner, why wouldn't we take the road that helps us to get to our
It is a similar method that Multiple Sclerosis
appears to use when choosing which nerves to attack.
whatever is attacking the
nerves in Multiple Sclerosis is spending more time traveling along the
faster paced nerves, wouldn't the MS have a much greater possibility of
attacking the better developed nerve pathways?
Although this is a theory as to why many cases of Multiple Sclerosis
result in weakness on one side of the body, this MS symptom doesn't
occur in all cases of Multiple Sclerosis.
This a curious
observation that warrants further investigation by the MS researchers.
the MS research progresses to try to understand the disease process of
Multiple Sclerosis and to find out more about what might help to
resolve many of the problems that are often associated with MS, more
conclusions are being drawn on how MS tends to act on the body.
When the MS symptom of weakness on one side of the body does
become a problem, this can make it much more difficult for you
to function as much, since this particular symptom
appears to signal that there is more MS nerve damage along the weaker
side of the body.
I started out with this symptom around the time that I was diagnosed
with Multiple Sclerosis. I had such a severe case of Multiple
Sclerosis, that I had so many things wrong that until the doctors
performed several test on me, they all kinds of ideas as to what was
actually wrong with me.
Okay...if you end up with this Multiple
Sclerosis symptom, can anything be done to help
reduce weakness on one side of body, as a result of Multiple Sclerosis,
to help you to function better again?
Well, if you think about it, more like the way that doctors think about
the way to handle severe strokes, there are a few things that can help.
In my own experiences with struggling to function better because of
this MS symptom of weakness on one
of body, the following are
things or ways that I have found that can help.
Although I have found several natural and/or alternative ways, which
have helped to some degree, in reducing the weakness on one side of the
body, because of the effects of Multiple Sclerosis on my
body, I recently found a natural remedy, which helps
so much more in reducing the weakness on one side of the body and helps
to even out the 2 sides of the body to work better together again.
Taking extra vitamin B12 helps to repair peripheral neuropathy or
damage to the nerves throughout the legs, feet, hands and/or arms.
But some forms of vitamin B12 do not absorb well or cause other
problems, like reactions in the body, based on what the vitamins
sources are used as raw materials to make the supplement.
Since people, diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis tend to have more
problems with absorbing vitamins from food sources and from vitamins
that are swallowed, vitamin B12 tends to absorb better as a sublingual
form that is dissolved under the tongue.
But a few problems with the sublingual forms of B12, which are on the
market include the following:
* Most forms of
sublingual B12 contain sugars
Sugars, such as fructose, glucose or sorbitol can cause problems in the
body if the yeast over growth called Candida Albicans is also present.
In addition sugar can weaken the immune system, making it easier for
people with MS to get infections more easily.
* B12 in the cyano
cobalamin or cobalamin forms are less absorbable
People with MS tend to have problems converting from one form of B12 to
* Some sublingual forms
of B12 interact with higher levels of mercury in the body
This is especially true, if the B12 is synthetically made of
ingredients, which interact with mercury in the body.
best form of B12 is methyl B12.
I am not sure about the way that you interact with things, but I tend
to get reactions to most synthetically made forms of B12, so this has
been a real challenge for me to be able to find a form of B12 that I
can tolerate taking.
The form of B12, which I found, that I can tolerate is the NOW brand
called "Instant Energy B12".
It is a crystal or powdered form of B12, with added B complex or the
other B vitamins, which can be mixed with water.
This form of B12 has been helping to greatly reduce the Multiple Sclerosis symptom of MS weakness on one side of the body,
and increases balance, as well as helps the nerves to function better.
We do not sell vitamins, but we are willing to discuss ones that we
have found that have helped to reduce the symptoms of Multiple
Sclerosis, which we have also struggled with previously.
Vitamins are not to be taken randomly or to be taken without the
supervision of your doctor or other medical professional, who is
monitoring what you are taking for managing or even reducing the
effects of Multiple Sclerosis, which you have been experiencing.
The information provided here is provided for informational purposes
and you need to discuss any information that you read or hear about
with your doctor, prior to considering anything as an option for
controlling or reducing your symptoms of Multiple Sclerosis, which you
may be experiencing.
