Multiple Sclerosis (MS)
Symptoms suffered depend on where and to what degree the nerves are affected. They include: reduced or abnormal sensation, weakness, vision changes, clumsiness, sudden loss of bladder control and vertigo. Symptoms might appear in any combination and be mild or severe. They are usually experienced for unpredictable periods of time.
These symptoms alone don't necessarily indicate MS and can easily be due to other unrelated conditions.
There is no cure for MS but several treatments are available aimed at preventing attacks, improving symptoms and slowing progression. For more information visit www.msakl.org.nz
