Multiple Sclerosis (MS) in the Neuro Praxis Düsseldorf
Multiple sclerosis (MS) is a chronic disease of the nervous system caused by inflammation and damage to the myelin sheaths that line nerve fibers. Symptoms can vary from person to person and can range from paralysis to numbness and blurred vision.
The diagnosis of multiple sclerosis (MS) is usually made by a combination of clinical symptoms, neurological examinations, imaging tests and the detection of inflammatory sites in the brain and spinal cord using magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). However, definitive diagnosis can sometimes be difficult, and in some cases requires observation of progression and further testing.
The earlier the diagnosis is made, the better the prognosis!
There are a variety of treatment options that can relieve symptoms and slow disease progression.
As is so often the case in neurology, it helps for a successful therapy to proceed with the utmost care when accompanying our patients and to take the necessary time for optimal treatment success. It is precisely this high standard that motivates us at Neuro Praxis Düsseldorf every day.
How common is multiple sclerosis? What do I have to pay attention to during early detection?
MS affects approximately 2.3 million people worldwide.
Early signs can be:
- sensory disturbances (numbness, tingling)
- visual disturbances
- Coordination disorders
- Falls for no apparent reason
It is important to consult a neurologist early to allow for prompt diagnosis and treatment.
