Multiple Sclerosis is known for weakening the immune system and making it so much easier for us to end up with so many more infections, than the average person with out MS, will ever seem to know. For those of us with Multiple Sclerosis infections can set us up for MS relapses to occur.
Infections can sometimes influence how crazy our ms symptoms can become by actually aggravating our already over reactive nervous systems. Infections don't always trigger ms attacks, but they can set up our bodies for being one step closer to the conditions that promote ms attacks to occur.
If the infections are more severe and we have a problem already with over reacting to either ms stress, ms insomnia, ms fatigue, or anything else that can over tax our bodies or further over stimulate our nervous systems, the combination of any of these things can actually lead to an ms attack or ms relapse.
This is why is is so important for those of us diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis that we be more careful about resting and reducing how e can over react to stress, when an infection is present. In addition, there are other things that we can do to minimize or avoid ms attacks or ms relapses, when we find that we do have an infection. These can include cutting out foods that we have found that aggravate our ms symptoms, adding foods to our diets that help to boost the immune system, and taking supplements (vitamins and/or herbs) to boost the immune system and minimize ms relapses, as well as help to improve how quickly we recover from the infection or infections.
