Hope for Multiple Sclerosis in Houston TX

multiple sclerosis, MS, nervous systemMultiple sclerosis or MS is an unpredictable and disabling disease of the central nervous system. It interferes with the flow of information between the brain and body. The person suffering from this terrible disease has an immune system that attacks its own central nervous system. Multiple sclerosis specifically targets the myelin – the covering on the nerve fibers. The damaged myelin forms scar tissue also known called sclerosis. That is where the disease get its name. When the myelin or nerves get damaged, the impulses between the brain, spinal cord and nerves are also disrupted, creating a wide range of symptoms. Common symptoms include pain, fatigue, blurred vision, double vision, a sensation of whirling and loss of balance called vertigo, falls, paralysis of both legs, paralysis of one side of the body, paralysis of one limb, numbness, tingling, the loss of full control of bodily movements, sensory deficits, depression, sexual dysfunction, and urinary dysfunction. The myriad of symptoms greatly decreases the quality of life of the person suffering from multiple sclerosis.

Houston vertigo specialist Drugs are mainly used to treat relapses also called attacks or exacerbations and manage all of the symptoms associated with multiple sclerosis. These drugs include prednisone which is a steroid hormone that can significantly impairs the immune system and can cause other diseases like osteoporosis and cataracts. Another drug used is interferon which shuts down the body’s natural feedback loop though it’s a natural substance. A recent study just came out showing clinical improvements with multiple sclerosis and chronic venous cerebrospinal insufficiency patients by correcting misalignments in the upper cervical spine. Chronic venous cerebrospinal insufficiency is a condition where people have obstructed blood flow in the veins that drain the central nervous system. Research indicates that chronic venous cerebrospinal insufficiency is significantly correlated with multiple sclerosis. Restoring function to this area can allow the body to drain correctly, decrease signs and symptoms associated with multiple sclerosis and let the body heal itself. References
