I understand the difference between the peripheral and central nervous systems. I also understand that MS only affects the Central Nervous system.
That understanding stops when I have an issue with my legs…having trouble with a limp or a numb feeling. Also what about the fasciculations / flutter i have in my muscles or the rhythmic twitching I have deep within the muscles? What about when the tip of my nose it totally numb, or when my eye won’t close and I have to wear an eyepatch to sleep? What about when I have trouble talking, or slurring, or am drooling because something is going wrong with my mouth? What about when my trigeminal nerve is hurting so bad a toothbrush feels like an ice pick? What about the brachial plexus neuritis or when I had a spasm that wouldn’t let go somewhere in my intercostal muscles? That one was so bad I couldn’t walk and had to go to the emergency room.
I don’t have Diabetes, Lupus, Cancer, physical injury, vascular / oxygen supply problems, Sjogren’s syndrome, or rheumatoid arthritis. I am a Healthy sick person. My only issue is MS. I’ll get a pulled muscle when I run sometimes but that is it.
So how can it be said that some of these symptoms I mentioned above aren’t related to MS?
