What is MS?
MS is a chronic autoimmune disease wherein the body’s immune system attacks its own cells due to mistaking healthy cells for unhealthy ones. It is a demyelinating disease, meaning it results in damage to the myelin sheath (the fatty coating that protects our nerves), causing obstruction in nerve impulse effectiveness and the central nervous system’s composite health. This causes significant complications in our neurological and bodily wellbeing, with effects being immensely debilitating and sometimes fatal. Although it is a rare disease, the many symptoms and lifelong harms tied to MS make it a devastating condition for patients and their families to endure.
Treatment for MS
Unfortunately, MS has no known cure. However, treatment of symptoms may be possible through medicine and lifestyle modifications. These forms of management but are not limited to the following:
Relapse management medications such as corticosteroids (intravenous methylprednisolone, oral prednisone, etc.)
Mental health counseling
MS is a highly incapacitating condition, meaning that treatment is a vital step to allow patients to live free and regular lifestyles. Lack of treatment may accelerate MS flare-ups and attacks, creating significant obstacles in MS patients’ function in any endeavors.
Can an HPV Shot Cause MS?
Numerous accredited studies suggest that, while there is no definitively conclusive basis for declaring that the HPV vaccine causes MS, there is a likelihood of an association between HPV vaccination and demyelinating diseases like MS in rare instances.
