In such conditions immune system attacks the protective sheath, called myelin that protects nerve fibres and causes communication problems between your brain and the rest of your body. There are more chances that it would cause the permanent cerebral damage. It is a progressive, immune-mediated disorder. The protective coverings of nerve cells are damaged, which leads to diminished function in the brain and spinal cord.
Thankfully modern science inventions that can it is much easy to diagnose the symptoms and decide further treatment course. Although there are some symptoms found common in most cases of
Visual problems are one of the most common symptoms in such cases. Certain level of inflammation affects the optic nerve and disrupts central vision.

Though urinary-related symptoms are still manageable but in rare cases, people with Multiple sclerosis experience constipation, diarrhea, or loss of bowel control. It can also pose few problems to sexual arousal factor, which can also be a problem for people with Multiple sclerosis since it begins in the central nervous system.
There are 50:50 chances that Multiple sclerosis conditions can pose certain problems like memory retention problems, shortened attention-span, and language problems. It can also cause disorientations. It all makes a person prone to depression and other emotional health problems.
