MS Nerve Dysfunction and Passing Out

Multiple Sclerosis can set us up for many physical problems, which can vary from case to case. This can sometimes result in more unusual MS symptoms appearing, which may not be considered as something that we would typically associate with MS.

The Multiple Sclerosis symptoms can affect many different parts of the bodies and cause us to function less than we would have been able to function before Multiple Scerosis entered our lives. 

Sometimes Mutiple Sclerosis can also cause our bodies to do some things that even the doctors are confused, amazed or even stumped by.

My particular case of MS is one of those kinds of cases of Multiple Sclorosis, which sometimes surprises the doctors with how confused my nervous system appears to be sometimes.  I sometimes have the weirdest symptoms of MS, at least from the doctor's point of view, that appear for a while and then just go away without any explanation appearing to shed any light on what was going on at that point. 

The doctors do run tests when these odd apparently MS nerve related symptoms appear, but more often than not, the tests the doctor performs either show very little, that doesn't explain these odd Multiple Sclerosis symptoms, or nothing shows up on the tests that are out of the ordinary.

One of these symptoms of MS that I am referring to in particular is the Multiple Sclerosis symptom of passing out, losing consciousness or at least feeling like passing out.

When it comes to the effects of Multiple Sclerosis, a few different things can add to how often a person with multiple sclerosis can feel like passing out and how often the those with MS actually does pass out.

My doctor and I have discussed the various ways that my body over reacts to certain simulations or dysfunctions that can cause me to lose consciousness or at least feel very close to passing out.  This is because of the Multiple Sclerosis nerve dysfunction and nerve damage that has occurred throughout my body because of the effects of MS on my body.

Things that can cause the MS symptom of passing out can include:

* Low Blood Pressure (Adrenal glands exhausted or under active)

In my case my adrenal glands are not functioning very well at times and the adrenals, among other things, help the body to process or absorb the sodium that is in our diets.  For some reason, unknown to the doctor, I occasionally have very low sodium levels and I have to add extra salt to my diet several times a day, just to stay conscious. This Multiple Sclerosis symptom comes and goes sort of randomly, which is a mystery to my doctor.

* Presence of MS Bladder Infection (because of the MS weakened immune system)

It is much more common for MS bladder problems to include burning or painful urination during a bladder infection, but a less common effect of the presence of a bladder infection is passing out from the over stimulation of the nerves that normally contract to allow the bladder to drain.

I only recently found out from my doctor that this can contribute to the MS symptom of passing out.

* Over Stimulation of the nerves that allow for bowl movements or for the intestines to empty from solid wastes.  This is a more common effect of the over stimulation of the nerves that is a result of damage to the myelin sheath, that is a result of the myelin being attacked by Multiple Sclerosis. The Multiple Sclerosis demyelination confuses the nerve signals so that they do not give the proper instructions to the body to allow solid wastes to leave the body as they should.

This over reaction can also come and go.  It is good to know that this can occur, just so that those of us that have been given the Multiple Sclerosis diagnosis are aware of this possibly occurring.
