a doctor would ask.
A woman suffering from paresthesia (or numbness and tingling of hands and feet) for the past four years believes she may have multiple sclerosis even though she is only 35 years old. Very little is known about the cause of MS and treatments are constantly changing. The condition is more prevalent in females than males and onset symptoms usually start between 22 and 40 years of age. There is no evidence that race is implicated in prevalence. Common symptoms of MS are vision changes, fatigue, numbness and tingling but symptoms such as bladder or bowel dysfunction, dizziness and depression may also occur. Currently, there are five drug therapies available for MS and they aim at alleviating the symptoms.
