Dr. Khurana believes that awareness about Multiple Sclerosis is the need of the hour. Effective treatment and management strategies exist for multiple sclerosis especially when tackled early. In addition to medicines, it is important to stay active and a positive attitude plays an invaluable role to control the symptoms of disease. The first symptoms of MS can be sudden and unexpected. Blurred or double vision, memory problems, lack of coordination, loss of balance, numbness, tingling and weakness in arms or legs are some of the common symptoms. The exact cause of the disease is unknown and it could be a combination of genetics, environmental factors, vitamin deficiency, stress and possibly even a virus to which the person was exposed to early in life.
