A Serious Disease That Can Have Serious Effects
According to the Mayo Clinic, multiple sclerosis (MS) causes your body's immune system to degrade the protective cover around your nerves, which can ultimately lead to irreversible damage to your nerves. The cause remains unknown.
Because MS can attack nerves in different spots throughout your body, the symptoms are quite diverse. In some extremely serious cases, people are left unable to walk or speak. Symptoms can disappear for lengthy periods of time before resurfacing. That causes the problem of sometimes being able to perform all the tasks of your job, and at other times not being able to perform any of them at all.
While there is no cure, with medication and treatment, people have been able to manage their symptoms and recover more quickly after being hit with an attack. A doctor can help if you are experiencing symptoms such as:
- Numbness or a tingling sensation in any part of your body
- Loss of vision in one eye or double vision
- Any type of tremor or feeling of unsteadiness
- A feeling of electric shock in your neck when you try to move it
It is of the utmost importance that your attorney be specifically skilled and experienced at handling disability benefits applications for multiple sclerosis. Our St. Louis multiple sclerosis disability attorneys can help.
