Multiple Sclerosis is more common than we think. It affects around 2.5 million people around the world. It is difficult to know and diagnose this issue as every person has different symptoms. The ailment is very painful for the patient, and it can last the entire lifetime.
Many patients with multiple sclerosis who used marijuana realized that it gave them relief from the pain and the disease. This looks like a breakthrough for many others who didn’t think of this option before. Cannabis can be used as an alternative medicine to give relief and help in curing and treating multiple sclerosis.
Multiple sclerosis affects every individual differently and so is considered to be a complex condition. The traditional medicines help to remove the negative impacts of the disease but can be taken as a standard cure for the disease. This is because the effects of the medication manifest in different ways in individuals.
Classification of Multiple Sclerosis
Patients who have Multiple Sclerosis are divided into four groups as per their conditions.
1) Relapsing-Remitting Multiple Sclerosis (RRMS): The patients have temporary conditions of multiple sclerosis where they experience pain.
2) Clinically Isolated Multiple Sclerosis (CIS): This is the next level where the patient may recover with the medication or go to the next level of the condition.
3) Primary Progressive Multiple Sclerosis (PPMS): The situation gets worse as the patient continues to suffer the pain in the back.
4) Progressive Multiple Sclerosis: This is when the patient starts suffering from nervous disorders due to the progress of the disease.
