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.

Multiple Sclerosis is considered an autoimmune disorder where the body attacks itself and causes damage or demyleination of the spinal cord. Multiple Sclerosis demyelinating of the spinal cord can result in scarring or nerve damage along the spine, throughout the brain or throughout any area of the network of nerves throughout the body.
MultipleSclerosis causes scarring or “sclerosis” that can be a result of nerve damage that interrupts the transmission of the nerve signals throughout the body. This can include the disruption of nerve signals that are transmitted though out the body or the signal that travels through the spinal cord that sends instruction throughout the body on how each part of the body should be functioning.
Multiple Sclerosis symptoms or MS Symptoms can cause a broad range of symptoms that involve the eyes, the hands, arms, legs or feet in various ways. MS can cause numbness or pins and needles can result or a nerve pain that is either constant or come and goes. Depending on the degree of scarring or the degree that the nerve signals or confused the symptoms of ms can either be mild or severe.
Multiple sclerosis symptoms can also include multiple sclerosis nerve reactions, such as spasms, twitches or ticks that can be mild to severe that result in uncontrollable movements of the legs, feet, arms or hands.
There are ways to reduce passing out and other over reactions of the nerves.

Multiple Sclerosis is an autoimmune disease in which the body's defensive immune system attacks and destroys the fatty tissue, called myelin, which surrounds the nerves in the brain and spinal cord. These myelin sheaths perform the same function as insulation around an electrical wire. Without the myelin insulation, nerve impulses from brain to body can short out and become confused, misdirected, or be completely blocked.
Multiple Sclerosis Symptoms can include numbness and/or tingling in the extremities, weakness, lack of coordination and/or balance, gait difficulties, slurring of speech, blurred or double vision, bowel and bladder dysfunction, vertigo, and heat intolerance.
Physical activity and MS exercise is extremely important for individuals with MS, and yoga is now recognized as an excellent means of reducing the symptoms of MS and helping with management of Multiple Sclerosis symptoms, whether the individual manifests little or no outward signs of the disease, or whether they spend most of their time in a wheelchair.
Yoga MS, a holistic fitness exercise program, has been reported to give greater physical flexibility, less fatigue, pain relief, reduced stress and a sense of regaining control of their life. Yoga is gaining popularity as a complementary health approach, where the students’ physicians are recognizing yoga as an appropriate and safe treatment with potentially profound results.

Because we live in a world where many different forms of energy patterns are being transmitted around us, this has to impact our bodies in some way, since our bodies are electrochemical in nature. Because we have television signals, radio signals, microwave signals, cell phone signals, computer signals and many other electromagnetic energy signals transmitted by the many different types of electronic devices in the environment that surrounds our bodies, we have many things that our bodies may not be able to tolerate on a daily basis.
Stress and effect of worsening ms:
Electromagnetic frequencies (EMFs) can create disturbances that can influence our bodies adversely on a daily basis. The disturbances that result can include energy drains, energy surges, concentrated energy sources, scrambling of the energy fields surrounding our bodies, among other types of energy disturbances that can assault our bodies often on a daily basis. These are grouped together and called geopathic stress that can definitely affect our health adversely. Unfortunately, the average person may not know as much about this area as we should know about this area of EMFs, because the information about this area of concern is not well publicized or even explained to us much at all.
How does this affect Multiple Sclerosis symptoms?
