Understanding Multiple Sclerosis & Its Symptoms
Multiple sclerosis is thought to be an autoimmune disorder that may be linked to certain infections. It also runs in families. With MS, your immune system starts attacking a protective nerve covering called myelin, which is critical for sending and receiving nerve impulses throughout your body. This loss of nerve signaling is what causes the signs and symptoms of MS.
Our neurologists perform a complete neurological exam and diagnostic testing to accurately diagnose the cause of your symptoms, which may include loss of muscle strength, uncoordinated movements, tingling sensations, and cognitive problems.
