Multiple Sclerosis (MS) is a demyelinating disease which is caused by damage to the covers of the nerve cells in the brain and the spinal cord. This makes the nervous system weak in communicating with other organs of the body. The symptoms of MS are blindness in one eye, double vision, muscle weakness, trouble with sensation or coordination. Almost any neurological symptom can occur in patients of Multiple Sclerosis.
Genetics and environmental factors such as viral infection are known to cause Multiple Sclerosis. These factors can destroy the immune system therby triggering Multiple Sclerosis.
Multiple Sclerosis is diagnosed on clinical examination by a neurologist with the help of some imaging tests and some pathological tests. It can be difficult to confirm it as MS as the symptoms and the radiological findings are similar in many other neurological conditions. In cases where more than one episode has occurred then clinical findings are sufficient to establish it as Multiple Sclerosis.
There is no known cure for Multiple Sclerosis and most of the medications used in allopathy have severe sideffects. Many patients benefit by using alternative therapies like Vitamin D, Accupuncture, dietary supplementation, Yoga, relaxation and hyperbaric oxygen therapy.
The cost of treating Multiple Sclerosis would depend on the line of treatment chosen. Since Allopathy does not have a definitive cure for the disease, patients opt for alternative therapies. The outcomes of these therapies are not documented so it all depends on the genetic makeup of the patient and their luck. The cost of these therapies vary widely. While Accupuncture can cost you INR 2000 per session, Hyberbaric Oxygen Therapy may cost INR 15000. Many of the other therapies like Yoga, Relaxation Techniques hardly cost any money. India being the originator of Yoga there are many free classes which are always going at some place or the other.
