Your brain and spinal cord are bathed in spinal fluid. A spinal tap, also called a lumbar puncture, is a procedure that removes and tests some of this fluid to help diagnose disorders of the brain and spinal cord, including multiple sclerosis.

Signs of Multiple Sclerosis Relapse

What Happens During a Relapse?

When you experience a multiple sclerosis relapse (also known as an exacerbation or flare-up), it's because new damage in your brain or spinal cord disrupts nerve signals. That's why you might notice new symptoms or the return of old symptoms. A true relapse lasts more than 24 hours and happens at least 30 days after any previous relapses. Relapses vary in length, severity, and symptoms. Over time, your symptoms should improve. Many people recover from their relapses without treatment.

Understanding the Different Types of Multiple Sclerosis
In some ways, each person with multiple sclerosis lives with a different illness. Although nerve damage is always involved, the pattern is unique for each individual with MS.

Recognizing Multiple Sclerosis Symptoms
People with multiple sclerosis (MS) tend to have their first symptoms between the ages of 20 and 40. Usually the symptoms get better, but then come back. Some may come and go, while others linger.

Multiple Sclerosis and Bladder Control Problems
Bladder control problems occur in at least 80% of people with multiple sclerosis. Because MS interrupts or slows the transmission of signals to and from the brain, the electrical impulses to the muscles that are involved in emptying the bladder can become disrupted.

Adapting Your Home for Multiple Sclerosis
Because daily activities -- including leisure activities -- can cause fatigue more quickly in people with multiple sclerosis, it's important to modify your activity levels. And, because MS can make moving around difficult, making certain changes to your home environment may help conserve energy and increase independence.

The latest study with core subject of major linking between venous narrowing multiple sclerosis was conducted at University of British Columbia and Vancouver Coastal Health and published in journal The Lancet. The researchers were quite keen to find out whether the narrowing of the veins from the brain to the heart can be the reason after multiple sclerosis. Through this study they found that such condition is quite common in the people without the disease. They used techniques including ultrasound and catheter venography to examine their point properly.

New Strategy to Treat Multiple Sclerosis Shows Promise in Mice
Scientists at The Scripps Research Institute (TSRI) have identified a set of compounds that may be used to treat multiple sclerosis (MS) in a new way. Unlike existing MS therapies that suppress the immune system, the compounds boost a population of progenitor cells that can in turn repair MS-damaged nerve fibers.

Multiple Sclerosis 101: Drug Treatments
A number of drugs have been shown to slow the progression of MS in some people. These are called the disease-modifying drugs. They include:
  • Aubagio (teriflumonide)
  • Avonex (interferon beta-1a)
  • Betaseron (interferon beta-1b)
  • Copaxone (glatiramer acetate)
