15 Most Common Symptoms of Multiple Sclerosis

Multiple sclerosis is an immune-mediated, progressive condition which can affect the brain and central nervous system. It damages the protective layers of your nerve cells, which results in diminished spinal cord and brain function. Women are basically more susceptible to this disease than men. Due to its complex nature, symptoms can be unpredictable and widely vary from person to person. Also, they can change in intensity between years, months, or even days. Here is a list of the top 15 most earlier multiple sclerosis symptoms.

Vision Issues

Visual issues are proved to be one of the earliest and most common symptoms of multiple sclerosis. The main reason is that inflammation caused by the disorder has an effect on the optic nerve and disrupts your central vision. This would eventually lead to blurriness, double vision, eye pain when looking up or to one side, poor contrast, even loss of vision. You might not notice these problems immediately because the degeneration could be slow. In many cases, these symptoms are mild and could be treated effectively with steroid or other short-term treatment. [1]
