What is MS

Multiple Sclerosis is a demyelinating diseases in which the insulating covers of nerve cells in the brain  and spinal cord are damaged. This damage disrupts the ability of parts of the nervous system to communicate, resulting in a wide range of signs and symptoms, including physical, cognitive, and sometimes mental problems.

There are several types of MS. Relapsing Remitting (RRMS) the most common in which there are isolated attacks. Another words time in between attacks where you might return to normal or a some what normal state. You will still have symptoms that vary and last for short periods of time. Primary Progressive form (PPMS) there are no distinct relapses but there may be plateaus or minor improvement  but each attack worsens with added severity or new symptoms and leaves permanent neurological problems behind as the disease advances. Secondary Progressive MS ( SPMS) follows RRMS meaning it follows after having RRMS. 85% of people diagnosed with RRMS will transition to SPMS. Which mean after a time of experiencing relapses the disease will start to progress steadily. With or without relapses. Progressive Relapsing (PRMS) progresses from the beginning with occasional attacks. People with this form may or may not experience some recovery after attacks. The disease continues to steadily progress without remission.

  1. Friend, there is no disease that Jesus can heal and I believe that if you have faith in him, and love in your heart, he will heal you. I have faith in him. And I know that he will heal you. I will pray for you today. God Bless you my friend.

  2. Our niece has this horrid disease, diagnosed in March. Here she is at 30 yrs old not having a care other than the stuff you’d expect. She seemed to have a stroke it was so severe, they had to teach her to speak a sylable at a time with help and encouragement she got full use back. One side was effected so she had to learn to walk and cut her food then to write. So far medication seems to be doing what it should. But we are scared, it was so huge for a first episode. I just wanted to share. 😇
