Fatigue, Vitamin Deficiencies and MS

Multiple Sclerosis Fatigue:

Fatigue can be a major problem in connection with the majority of the cases of MS. The fatigue can be mild to much more severe to the point where it can be much more difficult for the person that has been given the diagnosis of Multiple Sclerosis to function much at all.

Symptoms of MS can also include one or more of the following:

* weakened immune system and frequent infections

* spasms or twitches

* loss of bladder control (or incontinence)

* intense nerve pain that is either constant or comes and goes (that can be intense at one point
in the body or it can travel along the nerves like sciatica)

* numbness, tingling or pins and needles feelings often in the hands, arms, legs or feet

* problems with different parts of the body functioning as they should, this includes most parts of the body (arms, legs, hands, feet, etc.)

* vision, hearing or speech problems

and others. For each person that has been given the diagnosis of MS, any, all or none of the symptoms can be present.

These MS symptoms can be mild to severe for each case and can vary greatly in how severe or frequent relapses, attacks or exacerbations can appear.

Multiple Sclerosis and Vitamins: Certain vitamin deficiencies can cause more extreme fatigue, or can at least aggravate the problem of fatigue, making it appear to be much worse than it would be otherwise. It is highly recommended that you find a doctor that can test to see what your vitamin deficiencies may be for your particular case of MS to determine which vitamins may be needed for your own case of MS.
