multiple sclerosis

The most common disabling disorder of young adults, multiple sclerosis (MS) is a disease that attacks the brain and spinal cord, resulting in a variety of symptoms.

Symptoms vary from patient to patient but can include:

  • Fatigue
  • Numbness
  • Problems with vision
  • Vertigo and dizziness
  • Walking/coordination problems
  • Bladder/bowel dysfunction
  • Cognitive issues

A Treatable Condition
At Advocate Lutheran General Hospital, our neurologists are experienced in diagnosing and treating patients at all stages of MS. Highly effective immune-modifying treatments and oral medications are now available. Our multidisciplinary team of specialists includes expert physiatrists who provide a full range of rehabilitation services, including botulinum and baclofen pumps to address spasticity.
