Ms characteristics consist of certain symptoms, which may come and go for years at a time the long list of multiple sclerosis characteristics can be divided into 3 categories of symptoms when the demyelination process begins, primary symptoms appear these are created when the sheath is damaged on the outside of nerve cells in the brain and spinal cord. Multiple sclerosis (ms) proposed mechanisms include the hygiene hypothesis and the prevalence hypothesis the three main characteristics of ms are the formation of lesions in the central nervous system (also called plaques), inflammation, and the destruction of myelin sheaths of neurons.
3 characteristics and management of major symptoms the signs and symptoms of multiple sclerosis (ms) are generally related to the most heavily myelinated parts of the central nervous system (cns), but they are notoriously variable.

Multiple sclerosis (ms) is a potentially disabling disease of the brain and spinal cord (central nervous system) in ms, the immune system attacks the protective sheath (myelin) that covers nerve fibers and causes communication problems between your brain and the rest of your body. Research into ccsvi will determine its sensitivity and specificity for a diagnosis of ms, its prevalence in ms patients, and its clinical, mri, and genetic correlates our aim was to investigate the prevalence and number of intra- and extraluminal structural and functional extracranial venous abnormalities by using ds and mrv, in patients with.
