Multiple Sclerosis (MS): A Devastating Diagnosis
Multiple sclerosis (MS) is a chronic disease that affects the central nervous system (CNS), which includes the brain, spinal cord, and optic nerves. In MS, the body’s immune system mistakenly attacks the myelin sheath, which is the protective covering around nerve fibers. This damage disrupts the transmission of nerve signals between the brain and other parts of the body.
MS is a highly variable disease, meaning that it affects people differently and to different degrees. Some people with MS may have only mild symptoms, while others may experience severe disability. The most common symptoms of MS include:
- Vision problems
- Weakness or numbness in the arms and legs
- Difficulty with coordination and balance
- Bladder and bowel problems
- Cognitive problems, such as difficulty with memory and concentration
There is no cure for MS, but there are treatments that can help to manage the symptoms and slow the progression of the disease. Treatment options include medications, physical therapy, occupational therapy, and speech therapy.
MS is most commonly diagnosed in people between the ages of 20 and 40, and it is more common in women than in men. The exact cause of MS is unknown, but it is thought to be an autoimmune disease, which means that it is caused by the body’s own immune system attacking its own healthy tissues.
People with MS can live long and fulfilling lives. However, the disease can be challenging and unpredictable. It is important for people with MS to have a supportive team of healthcare professionals and loved ones.Multiple sclerosis (MS) patients will need supportive care to ensure their safety and well-being.
Caring for a Loved One with Multiple Sclerosis (MS) Will Stress Your Family
Taking care of a loved one with Multiple Sclerosis (MS) will also stress your family, both emotionally and financially.
The more hours you devote to your loved one, the higher your risk of caregiver overload and stress-related health issues.
According to one recent study, 6.3% of family caregivers suffer from anxiety and depression compared to just 4.3% of non-caregivers. More than 17% of those caring for a loved one with experienced other mental health issues compared to only 10.9% of the general population.
In a survey by the Associated Press and the NORC Center for Public Affairs Research found that 33% of caregivers struggle to maintain their health and have skipped personal doctor visits because of caregiving duties.
It can be difficult to hold down a job while caring for someone at home. 57% of those employed either full or part-time reported going in late, leaving early, or taking time off because of their caregiving responsibilities.
In addition, 18% had to go from working full time to part-time; 16% had to take a leave of absence; 8% turned down a promotion, and 1 in 6 were forced to quit working entirely.
