Numbness, Tingling and Other Early Symptoms of Multiple Sclerosis in Adults

Multiple sclerosis early symptoms such as tingling and numbness are some of the first signs that something is wrong.

People first start seeing multiple sclerosis symptoms when they are young. It usually affects individuals between the ages of 20 and 40. Researchers have established a link between the Epstein Barr virus and MS.

In addition to MS tingling, people also experience numbness, lack of coordination and sudden paralysis. They may also start to slur their speech. Multiple sclerosis coordination, gait and balance problems can be treated with medication or assistive devices.

Multiple Sclerosis Numbness Tingling
Multiple sclerosis numbness, tingling and similar symptoms are due to interference in the nervous system. Tingling is an early indicator of the disease, however tingling in the fingers is not a definite sign of MS. The sensation may be due to carpal tunnel syndrome, diabetes, kidney disease or other conditions.

Multiple Sclerosis Treatment for MS Tingling
Medication is helpful in treating MS symptoms. Drugs such as Ampyra have been able to improve movement in people with this condition. More than twenty percent of the people who used Ampyra experienced an improvement in their walking speed.

Numbness is sometimes reduced when patients use steroids. However, doctors only prescribe steroids for a short time. Anticonvulsants can help to reduce tingling and pain. A physiotherapist can teach patients how to compensate for the loss of mobility that the disease causes. Therapy helps individuals to improve coordination and balance and manage pain.

The Liberation Treatment multiple sclerosis is a surgery that has improved gait in many people with the disease. People who have done the surgery have experienced less fatigue, numbness and pain afterwards.

Paolo Zamboni's CCSVI Liberation Method for Multiple Sclerosis Treatment

Multiple sclerosis patients have benefitted from the Liberation Treatment for MS, which is surgery which unblocks veins in the neck.

Multiple sclerosis (MS) is an illness that affects the brain and spinal cord. About 2.5 million people world wide are affected by multiple sclerosis. Tests which are used in diagnosing multiple sclerosis include magnetic resonance imaging, evoked potential tests, the spinal tap and a neurological exam in which the doctor will test for functioning of the cranial nerves.

Multiple sclerosis symptoms depend on the location of the affected nerve fibers.
The first symptoms of multiple sclerosis include muscle stiffness, thinking problems, blurred vision, weakness, tingling, numbness and urinary problems.
Multiple sclerosis symptoms can be affected by a change in temperature. Research has shown that the velocity of nerve conduction is affected by temperature.

Multiple sclerosis research is advancing. Dr. Paolo Zamboni, a former vascular surgeon and professor at the University of Ferrara in Northern Italy, began investigating multiple sclerosis when his wife Elena was diagnosed 10 years ago.

Dr. Zamboni found that there are iron deposits around the blood vessels located in the brains of persons living with multiple sclerosis, which are higher than normal for their age. He believes that multiple sclerosis is a dysfunction of drainage of those veins.
Dr. Zamboni also found blockages in the necks of persons living with MS, in the jugular veins, which are directly underneath the brain.
The dysfunction is called chronic cerebrospinal venous insufficiency (CCSVI).

Multiple sclerosis patients have benefitted from the Liberation Treatment for MS, which is surgery which unblocks veins in the neck. The Liberation Treatment for MS is also sometimes referred to as the Dr. Zamboni Liberation Treatment. Mark Jones, who travelled to Poland for the Liberation Treatment for MS, said that after the surgery he was able to balance better and has more warmth in his feet.

Buffalo resident Kevin Lipp, was found to have the blocked veins of CCSVI in his neck. After undergoing treatment on those veins, he said he has not had a single attack. The Liberation Treatment for MS seems to stop the development of further MS attacks and in some cases improves mobility.

There is encouraging data but doctors say they are waiting on more conclusions and conducting additional studies to learn more.
