Multiple Sclerosis Symptom

Weakness on one

Side of Body
 

ms symptom or multiple sclerosis symptom

One possible Multiple Sclerosis symptom can include Multiple Sclerosis weakness on one side of 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 damage. 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. One of the ms symptoms that is seen in many cases of M S is the ms symptom of weakness on one side of the 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 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 it comes to the weakness on one side of the body, that can sometimes be one of the ms symptoms that can appear, it appears that MS attacks nerve tissues even more if the nerve cells are located along better developed neural pathways through out the body. it may be easier for the nerve signals and whatever attacks the nerves to travel more readily throughout the body along these neural pathway.

This type of
MS symptom can sometimes be mistaken for or at least be similar to the symptoms of a more severe stroke. This can make it more difficult for the doctors to diagnose Multiple Sclerosis initially.

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 this Multiple Sclerosis symptom or maybe even help the weaker side of your body start 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 type of effect of Multiple Sclerosis on my the Multiple Sclerosis weakness on one side of body, the following are things or ways that I have found that can help. including:

* Biofeedback - there are several kinds of biofeedback that can help in different ways.

There is EEG, EGG, EMG, Scio and other types of biofeedback that can help those with Multiple Sclerosis in different ways.  Some biofeedback retrains the brain and helps to reconnect neural pathways in the brain.  There is a kind of biofeedback that can be used to stimulate specific points or specific areas on the body that can help more with helping certain MS symptoms, such as ms bladder incontinence to help to retrain how the nerves respond to help straighten out confused nerve signals.

As far as Multiple Sclerosis weakness on one side of body, for me, I have seen that using the Scio Biofeedback helps the best with helping to reduce this MS symptom.

* Cranial Electrical Stimulation - this is another way to stimulate the brain using low level electrical stimulation that has helped me with reducing the weakness on one side of the body that I have had a problem with a few times in the past because of the effects of Multiple Sclerosis on my body.

* Low Energy Neurostimulation (LENS) - this is where electrodes are placed on the scalp and specific points on the head are stimulated use low electrical stimulation to stimulate specific parts of the brain.  Undergoing sessions with the LENS has helped me with reducing the weakness on on side of the body because of Multiple Sclerosis.

* Infrared stimulation of the nerve endings -- this is where a infrared device is used to stimulate the nerve endings in the hands and feet.  This can also help with improving how well the weaker side of the body functions.  If done over a period of time, the response of the body can be longer lasting improvements

* Brain exercises

Doctors like Dr. Michael Merzenich, from Posit Science, have found that the brain is more re trainable than was thought originally. Since the brain is the master controller for the body, if we can improve how well our brains can function, this makes a huge difference on how well our bodies can function. Dr. Michael Merzenich's research showed that the brain can be exercised like exercising our muscles to help improve how well our brains can function.

The research that Dr. Michael Merzenich and his team of neuroscientists and other scientists and researchers have done, within the last 10 years or so, has resulted in the development of a set of brain exercises that can actually help to reconnect neural pathways in the brain, so that the different parts of the brain can start to "talk" to each other again, as they would be doing normally. This has been an exciting breakthrough for those with brain injuries, head traumas or other nerve-related disorders like strokes, or Multiple Sclerosis!

* Intense Physical Therapy or doing certain types of Exercises - if done consistently over a more extended period of time doing exercises or intense physical therapy can actually help us to regain the ability for our nerves and our bodies to function again. Since the bran is 90% nerves and the brain can be retrained by exercising to redevelop neural pathways through out the brain, this idea can be extended to the nerves throughout the rest of the body.

Even if we have ms nerve damage, intense physical therapy can help to regenerate nerves by exercising the muscles connected to the nerves that need help!

This means that even in the more severe cases of Multiple Sclerosis, where there is much significant nerve damage, intense physical therapy can help to regenerate nerves and help our bodies to function again!

The one thing, that also needs to be known about the idea of doing intense physical therapy for those of us with Multiple Sclerosis, is that yes...there is a price to pay for going through with doing the intense physical therapy. Because MS fatigue is also known to be a big problem with the majority of the cases of Multiple Sclerosis that are diagnosed in different countries around the world each year, doing intense physical therapy can be physically exhausting. This is the price that we need to pay or go through for those of us with Multiple Sclerosis to find ways to function again, but in my opinion, this is well worth the sacrifice for us to be able to function again.

The most difficult part of being able to go for intense physical therapy is that this can be a very expensive endeavor, if you end up having to pay for the intense physical therapy as an out-of-pocket expense. If you can find a doctor that will work with you that is covered by your health insurance and find a good rehabilitation facility that your doctor will send you to, that is also covered by your insurance company, then at least you don't have the added expenses of paying for everything with out your insurance covering it.
