During the span of our life, those “no” moments occur in which mental and physical fatigue is accused. Sometimes we don’t pay much attention to these symptoms because we think they are minor things. A sleep or a vitamin supplement and it starts again.
But it could happen, on the contrary, that these symptoms persist for several days. In this case it is good to contact your doctor to understand the causes and evaluate a possible therapy. Precisely for these reasons, after a certain age, it is of fundamental importance to carry out checks. The annual checks are, in fact, our weapon available to prevent worsening of any diseases.
In any case, fatigue and learning difficulties can be symptoms related to multiple pathologies. But in particular, exhaustion and difficulty in concentrating are the alarm bells of this serious disease, which is not very common compared to Alzheimer’s.
Multiple sclerosis is the disease that affects the nervous system and for this reason it is classified as a neurodegenerative disease. It belongs to autoimmune diseases, i.e. those diseases in which the immune defenses respond irregularly. In this case they react to the components of the brain and nervous system.
What happens is a damage to the nerve fibers and myelin that surrounds them causing sclerosis, that is, scars, from which the scientific term derives. It is a disease that can be diagnosed between the ages of 20 and 40, through a neurological exam, an MRI and specific blood tests.
Exhaustion and difficulty concentrating are the alarm bells of this serious disease
The symptoms of multiple sclerosis are different depending on the location and severity of the scars.
From the point of view of touch, one accuses hyposensitivity, tingling and alterations about the different sensations between hot and cold. From a cognitive point of view, difficulties in concentration, learning, language, dizziness, coordination difficulties and lack of balance are accused. Visual difficulties such as diplopia and lowered vision are also accused.
Unfortunately, the symptoms didn’t stop there. Frequent urination and loss of urine are other warning signs that can be confused with those of diabetes. To which are added bloating and constipation.
Anxiety, depression, exhaustion, muscle and limb pain should also not be underestimated.
Research is making great strides
Fortunately, research is making great strides and argues that it is not a fatal disease and that it is possible to lead a normal life thanks to treatment and rehabilitation. Although they do not cure the disease, they serve to reduce its severity. But the most important thing is prevention and taking action already in the early stages so that the nerve fibers are not immediately damaged. Precisely for this reason it is important to make frequent checks, as anticipated. Once again, we recommend that you contact your doctor who will evaluate which checks to carry out in case of the appearance of some of the symptoms mentioned.
