Firstly, multiple sclerosis is a disease where the fatty myeline sheath around the nerve bundles get damaged leading to scar formation due to. This causes defect in nerve conduction.
In this disease any neurological symptom can be present. Sometimes a new symptom can appear which was not present previously. Mainly, cognitive and physical abnormalities are seen. In your case, increased temperature is due to resetting the base level body temperature higher than normal.
Presentation with this new symptoms indicates a symptomatic attack of multiple sclerosis. It should be treated meticulously using steroid and other supportive drugs. So, consult with your treating neurologist immediately for further management.

Regarding medication, some new drugs are available.
1. Interferon beta 1a and 1b.
2. Glatiramer
3. Mitoxantrone
4. Natalizumab.
5. Fingolimod
6. Teriflunomide.
These are disease-modifying agents which are necessary to stop the disease progression. Second part of therapy is physical and cognitive rehabilitation. For this purpose, you have to go to any multidisciplinary tertiary care hospital.

Summary: for present situation, consult with your neurologist for meticulous treatment. For total rehabilitation, you have to go to a multidisciplinary tertiary care hospital.

Hope this information suffices. Let me know if you have any more question.

I get with a call ms hug it feels so muddy is tightening my stomach my red and sometimes my chest and I do start panic over it causing me to have panic attack because of these symptoms been in a really bad car accident my head went through the windshield and then shortly after I had a psychiatrist do a procedure called ECT and shortly after that I started having MS symptoms the other thing is that I don't show I'm not sure of it is in MS symptom is that I remain nervous constantly without medication it feels as if so my nervous system is shot it's been 8 years since I have been in that car accident and 7 years since it's been having the ECT when I got off the klonopin and I started having the MS symptoms more before I got off the climate in the only and miss them I really had with the burning in the head neck and spine now I have like all of the MS symptoms could have the club in damage my nerves even though I am back on them and a lot of them and miss send them to have disappeared and taking take her car has taken the burning away from my head neck and spine sometimes I do feel some pain in my head burning sensation mainly on the left side of my head my body temperature gets really hot and I don't have a fever but I stay really really nervous and emotionally I am fine since I was 19 body would freeze up on me paralyzed or I could move or speak except for my eyes now is that up my whole body paralyzing on me certain parts of my body will paralyze on me more like the MS hug I also losing hearing in my right ear and I use to get burning sensations behind my left eye and it felt like I was being stabbed in my head and my chest totem doctors about the symptoms and they have said it was anxiety panic disorder but I know that is more than that could I have MS and another no logical problems from the car accident or from the Ectprocedure that I did not need I'm eating had won the religious not text me just say I was psychosimatic I finally have a neurologist now that is taking all the test that I need hopefully he will find out something but what do you think thank you
I'm sorry my voice activation is messing up on me what I meant I was taking tegratol it took away a lot of the burning in my head neck and spine but my body remains real hot most of the time I wonder if that medicine klonapin could have came into my nerves or that you see TV or the car accident
KEY meant the ECT not TV sorry I just wonder why I rock of the klonapin why I have more MS symptoms and tegratol take away most of the burning sensation in my head neck and spine I do once in awhile feel burning going down my spine and it makes me walk real funny but not for a long time I do get a lot of pain in my head neck and spine is there any other medication that would take the place of klonopin how to control my nervous system or is there a procedure that can control or repair the nervous system because all this medicine does is numb the nervous system
meant my whole body would be paralyzed except for my eyes I had a doctor say I was psychosomatic without checking with me first instead of my whole body paralyzing on me I usually get the MS hug which does cause me to Pandit a lot of the MS symptoms are causing me to have psychiatric disorders like anxiety and panic disorder heard that physical symptom can cause a psychiatric symptoms and I think the doctors have been getting me psychiatric disorders that are not really present or true and giving me the ect just have only hurt me instead of help me the doctor I kind a true actually stated in court that I made or talk him into doing this procedure that I did not need it

Multiple sclerosis occurs due to following -
1. Genetic abnormality associated with MHC Gene complex.
2. Environmental factors like vitamin D deficiency.
3. Infection with viruses like herpes, MS.
In MS as I previously told that any neurological manifestation may occur. Emotional symptoms you described above also due to this MS. Now, it has been increased in severity may be due to the recurrence of the MS.

Basically, the treatment is as I previously mentioned. Klonopin is used just for your anxiety and stiffness of muscle.It is not a drug that is used in multiple sclerosis. In place of klonopin, you can use other benzodiazepine group of drugs.

In my opinion, keep following up with the neurologist you mentioned and consult with him for taking the drug which I previously mentioned.

Hope you have answers. If have no more question, then close this discussion.

I have been diagnosed with celiac disease at age 10 recently I have been getting sick as if I don't have an immune system at all constant diarrhea bronchitis and asthma constant colds I really don't know how to deal with all of this MS dealing with Hardly no immune system 6 weeks pregnant is there any medications that is okay for me to take and am I allowed to take these medications without being diagnosed with MS and since they say that it takes a long time to be diagnosed with MS last year I have had the bacterial pneumonia and have almost died could all this is related to progressive MS and with having celiac
Answered by Dr. Das Arindam 24 minutes later
I have previously mentioned the causes of MS. Celiac disease , may be a part of the genetic abnormality you have. But celiac disease is not directly related to formation of progressive MS.
Bacterial pneumonia also does not have any relationship with progressive MS.

During pregnancy, corticosteroids can be used with precautions. But you are not allowed to take any drug without confirmed diagnosis, specially, in pregnancy.

So, do not take any drug without consulting your neurologist.

Take care.
