Lithium Gait Disturbance Causes and Reviews


Multiple sclerosis (MS) is a nervous system disease that affects your brain and spinal cord. It damages the myelin sheath, the material that surrounds and protects your nerve cells. This damage slows down or blocks messages between your brain and your body, leading to the symptoms of MS. They can include

  • Visual disturbances
  • Muscle weakness
  • Trouble with coordination and balance
  • Sensations such as numbness, prickling, or "pins and needles"
  • Thinking and memory problems

No one knows what causes MS. It may be an autoimmune disease, which happens when your immune system attacks healthy cells in your body by mistake. Multiple sclerosis affects women more than men. It often begins between the ages of 20 and 40. Usually, the disease is mild, but some people lose the ability to write, speak, or walk.

There is no single test for MS. Doctors use a medical history, physical exam, neurological exam, MRI, and other tests to diagnose it. There is no cure for MS, but medicines may slow it down and help control symptoms. Physical and occupational therapy may also help.

Lithium causes depression by way of suppression by way of a mental block it creates in ones mind . this leads to suicidal thoughts then thinking of killing oneself. if you are misdiagnosed bi polar and you are not this will probably happen. if there is a reason you end up in a mental institution and nobody cares and you are labeled bipolar by a doctor who doesn t have a clue you might possibly spend you re life in there being overly medicated to offset the drugs you shouldn t be on in the first place.
