Multiple sclerosis (MS) is a disease that affects the spinal cord and brain. There is not just one test to diagnose it, there are multiple tests. It is normally diagnosed by the symptoms and signs, also with laboratory testing. Multiple sclerosis can be challenging to diagnose because all of the symptoms can be comparable to other medical issues.
According to the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, The diagnostic process of multiple sclerosis has three elements to reach a diagnosis. The first one is the history of the patient. The second one is the neurological examination (tests of the nervous system and its function). The third one is a variation of specialized procedures. These may include inspections of the cerebrospinal fluid (fluid that flows through the spinal column), different types of X-rays, and numerous electrical tests. Another important distinguishing of multiple sclerosis is that the symptoms come and go in about two-thirds of the MS patients. When these symptoms are present they are called exacerbation’s, when they are not it is called remissions. A person with multiple sclerosis can, at any time, experience symptoms of the disease. Because of this, it is good to be able to recognize the symptoms and how to relieve them.
According to the National Multiple Sclerosis Society, MS has a tendency to take one of the four clinical sequences, which are mild, moderate or severe. The first one is a relapsing-remitting course, regarded as incomplete or complete retrieval after MS attacks. This course is the most common of the four. The second one is a relapsing-remitting course that eventually becomes increasingly better is secondary progressive MS. Incomplete retrievals and attacks might possibly carry on to happen. The third one is primary-progressive MS, a liberal path from the start without any MS attacks. The indicators that happen during the process usually do not remit. Only ten percent of MS patients are diagnosed with...
