I need information on multiple Sclerosis
What do you mean by the term "Autoimmune disease?"The cause of multiple sclerosis is unknown. It's considered an autoimmune disease in which the body's immune system attacks its own tissues. In the case of Multiple Sclerosis, it's an immune system malfunction that destroys the fatty substance that coats and protects nerve fibers in the brain and spinal cord (myelin).
This is just terrible...Corticosteroids, such as oral prednisone and intravenous methylprednisolone, are prescribed to reduce nerve inflammation. Side effects may include insomnia, increased blood pressure, increased blood glucose levels, mood swings and fluid retention.
