Ode to Multiple Sclerosis

Multiple Sclerosis is a progressive degenerative disease
That occurs in the nervous system of people of 20-30 ages
The cause is unknown but may be autoimmune due to infection
Multiple sclerosis results in the body nerve cell myelin destruction

There is diplopia and the impairment of vision
There is weakness of the muscles and poor coordination
There is vertigo, hearing loss and paresthesia
Damage to the facial nerve can result in facial paresis

Diagnosis is also based on the patient’s physical development
There is evidence of peripheral nerve involvement
Cerebral spinal fluid may show mild mononuclear pleocytosis
MRI search for changes within the brain peculiar to multiple sclerosis

Treatment is usually not a cure but suppression of symptoms
Glatiramer, Natalizumab and Fingolimod are the main medications
Supportive measures are bed rest, proper diet and speech therapy
There is rarely need for any surgical therapy

-An original poem by Kenneth Kee

Interesting Tips about Multiple Sclerosis

A Healthy Lifestyle

1. Take a well Balanced Diet

2. Treatment of Multiple Sclerosis:
Multiple Sclerosis cannot be cured but can be suppressed:
Supportive measures
a. Bed rest
b. Proper diet and nutrition to strengthen the muscles of the body
c. Physiotherapy to strengthen muscles
d. Occupational therapy to help stimulate the mind
e. Speech therapy for speech and swallowing
f. Social support
g. Avoid triggers
a. Glatiramer acetate is able to reduce the relapse rates of multiple sclerosis by about one-third and appears to reduce the overall progression of multiple sclerosis
b. Natalizumab is a monoclonal antibody that binds to white blood cells which are thought to play a role in causing the nervous system damage in multiple sclerosis. It also reduces the rates of relapses of MS by two thirds.
c. Fingolimod is a daily oral medication to treat MS by reducing the number of lymphocytes which is believed to cause inflammation in MS.
d. Interferon that is an anti-viral agent has found to reduce relapses of MS by one third.
e. Previous treatment used to be ACTH injections and corticosteroids. These are seldom used.

3. Keep bones and body strong

Bone marrow produces our blood

Eat foods rich in calcium like yogurt, cheese, milk, and dark green vegetables.

Eat foods rich in Vitamin D, like eggs, fatty fish, cereal, and fortified milk.

Eat food rich in Vitamins B and C such as green vegetables and fruits

Zinc and other minerals are important to the body

4. Get enough rest and Sleep

Avoid stress and tension

5. Exercise and stay active.

It is best to do weight-bearing exercise such as walking, jogging, stair climbing, dancing, or lifting weights for 2½ hours a week.

One way to do this is to be active 30 minutes a day at least 5 days a week.

Begin slowly especially if a person has not been active.

6. Do not drink more than 2 alcohol drinks a day for a man or 1 alcohol drink a day for a woman.

Alcohol use also increases the chance of falling and breaking a bone.

Alcohol can affect the neurons and brain cells.

Too much alcohol with smoking affects the brain cognition.

7. Stop or do not begin smoking.

It also interferes with blood supply and healing.

It affects the patient in different areas of the nervous system at various points in time

The cause is unknown but believed to be related to an auto immune disease resulting from a viral infection
