Overview

Multiple sclerosis is an autoimmune disease (where the immune system attacks healthy body cells) that affects the brain and spinal cord (central nervous system) causing:

  • Loss of balance
  • Muscle spasms
  • Numbness or abnormal sensation in any area
  • Problems moving arms or legs
  • Problems walking
  • Problems with coordination and making small movements
  • Tremor in one or more arms or legs
  • Weakness in one or more arms or legs

Causes

Multiple sclerosis affects women more than men. The problem is mostly found between ages 20 and 40, but can occur at any age. Multiple sclerosis is caused by damage to the myelin sheath, the protective covering that surrounds nerve cells. Family history is another reason behind the onset of MS.

Treatment

At Max Institute of Neurosciences, the goal of treatment is to control symptoms and help you maintain a normal quality of life through dedicated care and monitoring.

The treatment includes drugs for symptom control as well as preventive future attacks.

We have an exclusive Multiple Sclerosis Clinic that offers consultations, comprehensive diagnosis and therapies for the condition.
