It is a condition in which the myelin sheath of nerve fibres of brain, optic nerves and spinal cord are damaged. When myelin sheath gets deteriorated, nerve impulses slows down or often stops working causing many neurological problems. Demyelination tends to be patchy or segmental, affecting multiple areas simultaneously. Remyelination often takes place with complete recovery and regeneration of nerve cells. Demyelination is caused by viral infections, metabolic issues, oxygen loss and physical compression. Symptoms include numbness, loss of reflex actions, blurred vision, memory loss, fatigue, etc. There are vaccines to help decrease chances of demyelination. They are not curable but taking with your doctor helps in better understanding of the problem.
