Side Effects of Multiple Sclerosis
Multiple sclerosis (MS) is an immune system disease that affects the central nervous system (the balance system).
In MS, inflammation damages myelin (the protective covering around nerves) causing lesions (scar tissue) to form. The resulting lesions interfere with nerve signals (information) from the brain going to different body parts.
In other words, your body cannot communicate what task you need it to perform. Dizziness, vertigo, and balance deficits are often early symptoms in patients with MS. Other common symptoms include weakness, numbness, difficulties walking, pain, emotional changes, and depression.
