MS and How It Has Affected Me My mom was just recently diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis I didnt know how to react and was very upset at first The only things that I knew about this disease were all horrible My aunt has been fighting MS since before I was born and she is very sick So all I could think about was that mom was going to be the same way But then I started thinking about all of the new advances in medical studies and how far they have come since my aunt got sick MS isnt really even related to genetics There is obviously some sort of link in genes to being more or less vulnerable to getting it But it is originally started with a virus Mom got very sick after my grandfather died about nine years ago and the doctors say that is probably where it started Multiple Sclerosis is a disease where the natural insulation around nerve fibers is no longer produced and can cause symptoms such as brain damage muscle weakness fatigue and loss of vision The symptoms vary from case to case but basically MS is scarring of the brain and all of its little parts With MS patients experience attacks brought on by stress being overworked or just because These attacks consist of more scarring and damaged nerve fibers Fatigue is the most common symptom leaving patients very worn out and exhausted Anti-viral drugs can now help with a good portion of feeling tired The fatigue is caused by continuous tension on the muscles The muscles spasm like a short cramp and then release But they continue to do this and it takes away a huge amount of energy Physical therapy is also a big part of MS It can help with some of the contractions and prevent them from remaining contracted Pain is another big symptom for a lot of MS patients
