health – tears
We are one of the most resilient creatures on the planet, but that doesn’t mean we can’t break down and experience some of the most painful, heartbreaking, and life-altering emotional experiences. We all can remember moments of stress in our lives, but these are not the only reasons we experience emotional pain.
One of the most common reasons we feel emotional pain is that we suffer from an autoimmune disease. This is a condition in which the body is unable to properly function due to the presence of a substance (like a certain protein in our blood) that is made to attack and destroy the body. When we suffer from an autoimmune disease, our immune system produces antibodies that attack the part of our bodies that are causing problems.
The autoimmune disease I mentioned above is called multiple sclerosis (MS). MS is a disease that affects many parts of our bodies, including the brain, spinal cord, eyes, and nerves. It usually produces a gradual loss of sensory-motor skills. I know that the words “sensory-motor skills” might not be exactly what you’re looking for, but I’m trying to be as clear as possible, so you can get the most out of this post by reading.
MS has been referred to as an auto-immune disease, where the body is attacking itself, usually by attacking the immune system. MS is one of those diseases that is fairly common, and in many cases we don’t know why it occurs. MS is a chronic disease with some very bad side effects, including fatigue, memory loss, and visual problems.
MS is often misdiagnosed as a fatigue disease, but it can also turn into full on autoimmune disease. That was the case for me, though I don’t recall being diagnosed with any autoimmune disease prior to my MS diagnosis. In MS, the body is attacking itself, mainly in the brain. The brain is a very busy place, and if you have MS, you are usually quite sick.
I am a doctor and have many friends who suffer from MS. I see many people with fatigue who can’t seem to get enough sleep, or who have difficulty concentrating, or who can’t get out of bed. They’re also often confused and depressed, particularly if they’ve had a previous diagnosis of MS. But the sad fact is that MS is a disease of the brain, and unfortunately it is a disease that can only be treated effectively and safely using a range of different drugs.
The use of multiple medications, most notably corticosteroids and immuno-suppressants, has led to a huge increase in the number of people with MS in the last 40 years. Many doctors, myself included, have become convinced that the best treatment for MS is just to live a normal life and take the drugs they’ve been prescribed, because they have shown many positive benefits.
I know this because one of the best things about MS is that it can make you feel terrible at times. I’ve felt that way myself a few times. It’s what caused me to give up and start taking drugs. But the good news is that it can be treated with a range of different drugs to help with the pain. Drugs like ibuprofen and acetaminophen can be used to reduce the pain and inflammation and act as anti-nausea drugs.
The other thing that can help in reducing pain and inflammation is a diet filled with healthy fats. This is known as “fat sparing dieting.” If you are overweight, you may want to consider losing weight and cutting down on unhealthy fats. This can decrease your pain levels and inflammation.
The other thing that can help is getting the right type of exercise. If you’re doing too much of it, your joints may be stressed out and become painful. Just like the rest of the body, the joints within your body can also be stressed. The best way to reduce stress on your joints is to do some light exercises such as walking or yoga.
