Profession about the possibilities and awareness of a patient’s violent outcome can forecast in the future.

One can read about or even learn through seminars but not until you really experience first hand for yourself will you know for sure of the dangers it imposes on the well-being of the patient and you.

The matter in which I am referring to is the trauma of caring for a multiple sclerosis (MS) patient. At an early stage, symptoms of multiple sclerosis can cause problems with vision, including sudden loss of vision in one eye or rarely both eyes, double vision, blurred vision, severe dizziness, imbalance, numbness, weakness, muscle spasms, tremors, speech problems, depression, and facial pain.

This is a breeze if this is all I have to contend in following through but that’s not the case in this situation. Each person’s reaction to this disease reaction is different in each person with MS.

The extent of this neurological disease is not yet fully understandable until further tests are administered like the magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) as we call it.

A magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is a test that uses a magnetic field and pulses of radio wave energy to make pictures of organs and structures inside our body more visible than the normal x-ray equipment can notice.

Now more questions arise as what further findings are noticeable within the body.

One fact finding is lesion. In multiple sclerosis, lesions, also known as plaques, are
