Raising the bar on Multiple Sclerosis Awareness.

Some basic information on Multiple Sclerosis:

Multiple Sclerosis is often seen in early stages of people between the ages of 20 to 40 years old. Multiple Sclerosis can affect anyone, male, female, transgender, non-binary, gender fluid, literally ANYONE. It starts off as something as simple as numbness and tingling in an arm or leg. It can progress to blurred vision, memory loss, lack of coordination, loss of balance, and thinking problems. No two people have the same issues come about. You can go for years or months with some symptoms but not all of them! MS is also not genetic or hereditary, there is no real information on how this comes about.

Some common symptoms include, Dizziness, Trouble Walking, bladder problems, unusual sensations, fatigue, muscle spasms, speech problems, thinking problems, tremors, and even vision issues. You can have these issues and that doesn't mean you necessarily have Multiple Sclerosis.

There are ways to diagnose this illness that include, MRIs, CT Scans, and spinal taps. Stitching had her brain scanned and it was discovered that there were white markers on her brain that were suspicious of Multiple Sclerosis. They started her on an IV regime of prednisone, which is a very strong steroid to help combat the early stages of MS. While she was hospitalized, they did preform a spinal tap on her. It came back that she had two bands in her spinal fluid indicative of Multiple Sclerosis, which further confirmed the diagnosis of MS.

That's great, now that I know some basics, how is it treated and can it be cured?

Multiple Sclerosis can be treated in a few ways. It can be maintained with a daily injection of a medication called Copaxone. There is also a three times a week version of this medication also available. MS can also be treated with stem cell therapy. People also use medicinal cannabis to treat pain symptoms caused by Multiple Sclerosis. MS can not be cured, that is to say there is no cure currently for it.
