Caregiver for Person with Multiple Sclerosis in San Marino & Pasadena


Multiple Sclerosis (MS) is difficult to identify and diagnose because it affects everyone differently and the symptoms come and go.  MS is an autoimmune disease that causes a loss of muscle control, balance issues, vision impairment and an overall physical sensation of numbness.  Since multiple sclerosis affects the brain and spinal cord, there is progressive damage caused to the central nervous system interfering with the messages sent from the brain to other parts of the body.  No one really understands what causes Multiple Sclerosis and there isn’t a cure, but the most common signs are muscle weakness, fatigue, vision impairment, eye pain, loss of coordination, muscle stiffness, pain, incontinence and confusion or difficulty thinking.

While anyone between the ages of 20 to 50 can develop Multiple Sclerosis, women are more likely to be afflicted.  Like any health or medical condition, earlier diagnosis and treatment help slow the progression of the disease.  There are treatments available to help people living with MS relieve the symptoms and shorten the duration of MS attacks.  There are many famous and extremely active people living with Multiple Sclerosis including Teri Garr, Montel Williams, Annette Funicello, Ann Romney, Donna Fargo, Neil Cavuto, Tamia, and Michaele Salahi.
