Multiple Sclerosis – “a disease with many faces”

Multiple sclerosis can occur at any age, but the first symptoms usually appear between the ages of 20 and 40. This is what happened with famous actors.

Multiple sclerosis is also often abbreviated as MS, from Latin sclerosis multiplex. “It is a chronic and inflammatory disease of the central nervous system in which there is multifocal (disseminated) damage to the nervous tissue – the so-called demyelination, which over time results in the death of neurons and the atrophy of the brain, “we read on the website of the Neurobile Mobilized campaign, which aims to support people with neurological diseases.

The causes of MS are not fully understood. Scientists point to genetic background, environmental factors, and even diet, smoking or deficiency vitamin D..

There is no test that quickly confirms that a patient has multiple sclerosis. Referred to as “a disease with many faces”, MS can have different symptoms. – Multiple sclerosis is a very variable disease, so the symptoms can be very different – explained the neurologist, prof. Krzysztof Selmaj, director of the Neurology Center in Łódź.


  1. The first symptoms of MS appear several years before diagnosis

Early symptoms of multiple sclerosis

What warning signals should you be aware of? Here is a list of symptoms that may be evidence of MS:


  1. recurring balance problems and dizziness;

  2. tingling and numbness in the arms, legs, fingers and face, especially on one side of the body (mild at first, becomes worse over time);

  3. painful muscle spasms, especially in the legs;

  4. deterioration of vision;

  5. chronic fatigue, even after a night’s sleep (usually worsens in the afternoon – accompanied by drowsiness and muscle soreness);

  6. bladder and bowel problems (diarrhea, constipation);

  7. difficulty concentrating, memory impairment;

  8. depression, anxiety, mood swings.

In the diagnosis of multiple sclerosis, doctors use contrast MRI of the brain and spinal cord, and less routinely: examination of the cerebrospinal fluid and visual evoked potentials.

Treatment of multiple sclerosis. MS is no longer a sentence

Experts point out that there has been significant progress in the treatment of MS. Early diagnosis and highly effective preparations enable patients to lead a normal life. Królikowski himself emphasizes this. – I try to live actively – he said. And he added: “In my head I have fires that are extinguished by a treatment that I use every month in the hospital“.

Pear also emphasized: early diagnosis made it possible to tame the disease. – I take my medication twice a year and I don’t actually think of myself in terms of a sick person – she described in “Dzień Dobry TVN”.
