Everyone’s Symptoms Are Different:
Symptoms of multiple sclerosis can vary widely and are in direct correlation to where damage has happened within the CNS. Within a persons brain are billions of cells broadly called neurons which interconnect to each other to form networks of neurons called neural networks. Some networks are responsible for cognition, memory, autonomic function while others manage balance, musculature and most of a persons functionality. The brain is like a biological supercomputer and the spinal cord is like a freeway sending and receiving signals to and from the body and the brain.
Multiple sclerosis attacks or exacerbation’s as they are clinically defined may result in partial or complete signal loss between neurons or neural network pathways. Due to signal loss functions controlled by the associated neurons and neural networks may be impacted resulting in the symptoms of MS.
