A condition that affects the nervous system and immune system is named multiple sclerosis and it is also popular under the short term of MS. When the condition occurs, the nerve sheaths or coverings are attacked by the immune system, which can lead to their destruction. Insulation on wires is a good simile we can make with sheaths that are located around the nerves since they have the same role, basically. If they are not present, some problems with the brain can be causedand experienced, though this condition can cause problems in other body parts as well. A very important part of the treatment is an early detection, because, if this and a proper diagnosis are done the treatment can be successful. Womenare more affected by this condition, and usually suffer more serious problems than men but men are mostly blamed for transferring the condition to their children. This may be the reason why this condition can run in some families.
The problems caused by this condition are not evident until the age of 20, and even 40 sometimes, and muscle problems are the most common problems associated with multiple sclerosis. This condition can come in many forms and can be very diverse, and some say that MS ages along with the host. Some of the problems with vision, like sight problems and double vision are considered to be common. In the first stages of multiple sclerosis, men usually feel numbness or tingling sensation in the extremities while some say that a feeling of a tired muscle is felt. The problems produced by this disease have been described as the ones created by an electric shock. A problem is a specific movement, like head turning, which produces pain. Another problem multiple sclerosis induces is paralysis. Some men experience problems with moving the foot, hand, leg or an arm but these problems do not affect only extremities, since they can spread to swallowing and speech. Multiple sclerosis affects the pathways of communication and thus creates problems with memory. Because of this, many men suffer from memory loss. Erectile dysfunction is one of the most common problems. The multiple sclerosis can produce problems with libido, which can be very frustrating. These problems can also be created by some medications. If you are having these, or similar problems, use of medication such as papaverine or alprostadil can help. The last problems we will mention, concerned with multiple sclerosis in men, are coordination problems, tremors, fatigue, bowel control loss, lethargy, bladder control loss and balance problems.
