Praveen (Male, 51 Years)
Praveen was a media professional. In 2010, during his routine check up after a stroke in 2006, his spine showed plaques which indicated demyelination. At this time he was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis, which is a relapsing remitting type. He had clumsiness in his hands.
Multiple sclerosis (MS) is a demyelinating disease in which the insulating covers of nerve cells in the brain and spinal cord are damaged. This damage disrupts the ability of parts of the nervous system to communicate, resulting in a range of signs and symptoms, including physical, mental, and sometimes psychiatric problems.
