Multiple Sclerosis (MS) damages the protective layer of the nerve and the nerve itself. When that occurs, it affects the ability of the nerves and muscles to communicate. MS symptoms can be either episodic - meaning they come and go – or progressive. Understanding MS symptoms and phases is key to being able to recognize progression.
MS symptoms are not only unpredictable, they show up differently from person-to-person. The disease affects the brain and spinal cord by damaging the protective covering (myelin) and causing inflammation. This means that each person’s symptom depends on which part of the Central Nervous System (CNS) is affected.
The physical, cognitive and emotional symptoms listed are some of the more common symptoms of MS. Because the condition is different from person-to-person, symptoms can show up in other ways.
