MULTIPLE SCLEROSIS

WHAT IS MULTIPLE SCLEROSIS?

Multiple sclerosis (MS) is a chronic disease of the central nervous system in which the immune system incorrectly attacks nerve tissue in the brain and spinal cord, resulting in slurred speech, blurred vision, tremors, paralysis, and spasticity.

Scientists believe it may be a combination of environmental factors and genetic predispositions but are not sure as to why immune cells attack the central nervous system. 

According to the National Multiple Sclerosis Society, more than 2.3 million people are affected by MS worldwide and almost 1 million here in US.

MULTIPLE SCLEROSIS SYMPTOMS

Multiple sclerosis is very unpredictable; no two patients share the same symptom experience. One patient may only have one or two symptoms, while another suffers from a broad range.

Common symptoms include:

  • Constipation
  • Depression
  • Difficulty walking
  • Bladder dysfunction
  • Blurred vision, poor contrast or color vision, and painful eye movement
  • Changes in the ability to learn, process information, solve problems, focus, and understand surroundings
  • Dizziness and vertigo
  • Fatigue
  • Numbness or tingling in the face, body, or extremities
  • Sexual problems
  • Pain
  • Spasticity, feelings of stiffness, and involuntary muscle spasms

HOW MEDICAL MARIJUANA HELPS MULTIPLE SCLEROSIS PATIENTS

Medical marijuana helps MS patients by reducing the frequency and severity of muscle spasms and ease stiffness. Patients experience more freedom of movement, calming of the frequent urge to urinate, and better sleep.

Medical cannabis can also acts as an analgesic, helping to relieve inflammation and pain.

The American Academy of Neurology says:

“Strong evidence shows that oral cannabis extract lessens patients’ reported symptoms of spasticity. It also lessens the pain caused by spasticity.”

The National Multiple Sclerosis Society adds:

“The Society supports advancing research to better understand the benefits and potential risks of marijuana and its derivatives as a treatment for MS.”
