Women who suffer from multiple sclerosis (MS abbreviations on abbreviationfinder), and which are treated with immunomodulatory medications, should discontinue the medication at least 1 month before, they are trying to become pregnant. Pregnancy does not appear to increase the number of acute forværrings episodes-so-called attaks-during pregnancy. Individual studies suggests that disease activity diminishes during pregnancy. However, there is an increase in the number of acute forværrings episodes or new symptoms in the first six months after birth. These episodes should be treated and handled in the same way as any forværrings episode by MS.
In previous articles as “Don’t you run single” by my colleague Noah Muñoz Barallobre or in others as “mountain race: V back to the gardens of San Ildefonso” my colleague Diego Benito Santiago, we can see that popular racing is an event that not only offers the opportunity of exercising because it allows us to unite with the rest of the participants to achieve a common goal. In this article I want to highlight the importance of this union in the cause against a serious disease as it is the Multiple Sclerosis (MS).
What is multiple sclerosis?
Ms is the most common demyelinating process, a set of neurological diseases that tend to affect young adults and is characterized by inflammation and selective destruction of the myelin of the central nervous system and the optical nerves, in general respecting the peripheral nervous system.
It is a disease of unknown etiology and autoimmune pathogenesis, characterized by antibodies antiglucoproteina’s myelin of oligodendrocytes.
It is more common in young women (20-45 years). They have most at risk populations with higher level of life, since it is believed that it may be related to a later exposure to infections. On the other hand, there seems to be some genetic susceptibility.
The most characteristic alteration is the emergence of areas or well-defined demyelination plates at the level of the central nervous system (CNS).
The majority of the functional systems of the CNS are affected throughout the evolution of the disease and characteristic is the worsening of the clinic with the heat.
The diagnosis of this disease requires a thorough differential diagnosis because there is a lack of accurate diagnostic tests in many cases.
At this time there is treatment with ability to cure the disease. Outbreaks are treated with corticosteroids. Base treatment is with acetate copolymer (synthetic molecule that simulates the myelin protein), or glatiramer interferon beta or immunosuppressive agents.
For symptomatic treatment options, are given such as pain carbamazepine, for the functional alteration of the bladder, anticholinergic. Antidepressants or medications for fatigue are some of the drugs associated with this disease.
As we can see this disease it is not a pleasant process for which suffers from it and nor is it for them that they have around. Get ahead in the case of suffering can become a long uphill that the end does not reach to see.
My professional experience with patients with multiple sclerosis
In my professional life I have had the opportunity to meet with patients presenting this clinic in a process already advanced and say opportunity despite the serious difficulty representing the affected family as the which is for himself, because have seen with admiration the attitude with which the patient is facing it. The joy with which came to the clinic and the desire to laugh me greatly surprised despite the State in which he was aware he was.
Obviously not all cases are as well and many of them suffer from this disease with a deep depression to see the physical and mental deterioration that are succumbing without any chance of escape. This situation is really frustrating for someone and not easy to deal with.
Race for multiple sclerosis
From Uworkfit we want to support the cause to the Madrid Foundation against multiple sclerosis (FEMM) organized on May 31 with a charitable career. “A step forward, runs through multiple sclerosis”.
The objective of this race is raise funds to finance rehabilitation of people suffering from MS and support to patients, as well as raise awareness about what is this disease. There is also a way to help without need to run through the registration platform, all revenues will go to the above mentioned purpose.
Where is it going to make the race by multiple sclerosis?
Of the venue will be at the Esplanade of the Paseo del Angel in Madrid’s Casa de Campo to the 9:00.
The event will consist of two tests. One of them will have a distance of 2.3 km and another 10 km. In each of these great prizes there will be winners and what satisfaction which make a physical effort for a cause that can help people who really need the help of all.
The price of the dorsal fin are 12 euros and the registration can be done via the internet in a quick and simple way or can go to different entry points that are detailed on the website of the own career.
The FEMM aims to be a support for people affected by this disease with the intention of promoting their well-being and that of their families. Social awareness is one of its main purposes. In this field have been an entity innovative recognition of your name as a reference at the level of the community of Madrid.
Always exercise is rewarding in many ways. Improve our physical capacity surpassing ourselves with every workout, increase our health both corporal and intellectual status, as a better oxygenated brain is a brain more effective, are some of the positive consequences of habitual physical activity.
In this case, besides the usual advantages that we have to make a race, we find that I participate in a help project for people with a great difficulty in their lives as it is this horrible disease.
Somehow taking part, we connect with people who suffer from it and share their suffering for a moment. Despite impotence not making really great thing, help them economically and socially active participation in this event is a start. The aim is to contribute our grain of sand in the struggle to improve the quality of life of the people who need it most, in this case those affected by multiple sclerosis.
At Uworkfit we always support the sports projects as it is our reason for being, health and well-being, but when it comes to projects of this kind we felt one need to further encourage everyone to participate, since we understand the good carried out these organizations and the good cause involving projects like this.
