More and more, problems that people have commonly faced are being diagnosed more accurately. For example, arthritis is now no longer just an ailment that old people get. It can now be traced back to the root cause disorder which is more specific, and from there it can be better treated and hopefully even combated – and if not, at least have the disease go into remission. Even the likes of Lupus and Coeliac Disease have become better understood and where before many people with similar symptoms were being lumped together, now they’re being more accurately differentiated. Some autoimmune diseases attach only one organ, others affect the whole body.
What are brain lesions?
When abnormal tissues form on the brain tissues, this is known as brain lesions. Brain lesions are commonly caused by trauma, infections, brain cell death, radiation and as a result of multiple sclerosis. Muscular sclerosis causes new brain lesions or old ones to grow bigger which prevents spinal cord nerves from transmitting signals properly to the rest of the body and can cause an escalation of muscular sclerosis symptoms. Multiple sclerosis prognosis is done through imaging such as MRI scans. There are different types of brain lesions that can occur depending on the causes.
What is multiple sclerosis?
In the case of multiple sclerosis, the body’s immune system fights against the central nervous system. It breaks down the fatty tissue that surrounds and protects the spinal cord and the nerve fibres are exposed and can become permanently damaged. The damage that occurs causes neurological issues that present themselves in a variety of ways and varying levels of severity

Seek out support
Groups can provide a wealth of comfort when you need it in just the way you need it that many people who haven’t experienced it cannot quite understand in the same way. They are filled with people willing to give advice, share stories, help at the drop of a hat. They offer unique perspectives, people who are committed and caring and passionate about helping others.
Dealing with the psychological
Knowing you have an incurable disease and one that is progressive is a difficult reality to face. You need to be aware that you will experience various stages of acceptance. There will be the usual phases of shock, denial, anger, bargaining, depression, and acceptance. Don’t be afraid to seek professional support and lean on those around you. Being part of support groups will also help in difficult times.
