Multiple sclerosis is a chronic disease which affects the nervous system. The brain, the spinal cord, as well as the optic nerve can be affected. How this disease will progress from person to person is hard to predict. Females are 2 to 3 times more affected compared to males and the disease is usually diagnosed between the ages of 20 and 50 years old.

There is no cure for multiple sclerosis. However, with specific treatment, signs and symptoms of multiple sclerosis can be controlled, making it possible for the affected person to lead a normal life as much as possible. The severity of the disease varies from one person to another. While some have only mild symptoms characterized by tingling and numbness, others may have a severe form of the disease which can lead to paralysis and even vision loss.

Symptom 1: Fatigue

Fatigue is one symptom of multiple sclerosis. It makes a person feel tired, weak, exhausted and out of energy at the same time. In most cases, performing even daily life tasks can be a real challenge sometimes. Daily living is much more difficult with fatigue.

Ninety percent of multiple sclerosis patients refer to fatigue as a symptom. The real cause of fatigue is not known. It usually occurs on a daily basis, occurring suddenly, sometimes early in the morning and getting worse during the day. Fatigue related to multiple sclerosis is more severe than normal fatigue we have all experienced every now and then.
