(Stuart will insist that more needs to be known of Headaches and MS, as he has battled almost daily headaches for more than 10 years)
NEW YORK (Reuters Health) – Patients with multiple sclerosis are more apt to suffer from headaches than the general population, results of a study hint.
Multiple sclerosis, or MS, is a disease in which the immune system mistakenly attacks and damages the myelin sheath that protects nerve cells. It can cause symptoms ranging from vague tingling to blindness and paralysis.
"Headache is not generally considered a symptom of MS, and studies investigating the relationship between the two conditions have produced conflicting results," Dr. Mario Zappia, of the University of Catania, and colleagues note in a report published this month.
