Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    What is the main cause(s) of Multiple Sclerosis (MS)?

    • A.

      Genetics, Plaque on the Mylein Sheath

    • B.

      Exhaustion, Dehydration

    • C.

      Blood Loss, Skin damage to the fingers

    Correct Answer
    A. Genetics, Plaque on the Mylein Sheath
    Explanation
    The main cause of Multiple Sclerosis (MS) is believed to be a combination of genetics and the presence of plaque on the myelin sheath. Genetics plays a role in determining an individual's susceptibility to developing MS, as certain genes have been identified to increase the risk. Plaque on the myelin sheath, which is the protective covering of nerve fibers, disrupts the normal flow of electrical impulses, leading to the symptoms of MS. Other factors such as exhaustion, dehydration, blood loss, or skin damage to the fingers are not considered the main causes of MS.

  • 2. 

    Which factors make you more likely to have MS?

    • A.

      Between the ages of 20-40

    • B.

      Males are more likely to get MS

    • C.

      Being above age 40

    • D.

      Women are more likely to get MS

    • E.

      The closer to the equater you are, the more likely you are to get MS

    • F.

      You are of Caucasian race

    • G.

      The farther from the equater you are, the more likely you are to get MS

    • H.

      You are of a race other than Caucasian

    • I.

      You have a family history

    Correct Answer(s)
    A. Between the ages of 20-40
    D. Women are more likely to get MS
    F. You are of Caucasian race
    G. The farther from the equater you are, the more likely you are to get MS
    I. You have a family history
    Explanation
    Multiple factors contribute to the likelihood of having MS. Firstly, being between the ages of 20-40 increases the risk. Secondly, women are more likely to develop MS compared to men. Thirdly, individuals of Caucasian race have a higher susceptibility. Additionally, being farther from the equator increases the likelihood of developing MS. Lastly, having a family history of MS also increases the risk.

    Rate this question:

  • 3. 

    A symptom of Multiple Sclerosis is _______________.

    Correct Answer(s)
    weakness
    numbness
    tremors
    fatigue
    poor coordination
    Explanation
    Multiple Sclerosis is a neurological disorder that affects the central nervous system. It can cause a variety of symptoms, including weakness, numbness, tremors, fatigue, and poor coordination. These symptoms occur due to the damage and inflammation of the protective covering of nerve fibers in the brain and spinal cord. The combination of these symptoms can significantly impact a person's mobility and daily functioning.

    Rate this question:

  • 4. 

    Multiple Sclerosis is not preventable.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Multiple sclerosis is a chronic autoimmune disease that affects the central nervous system. Currently, there is no known way to prevent the development of multiple sclerosis. While certain lifestyle factors such as maintaining a healthy diet and regular exercise may help manage the symptoms of the disease, they cannot prevent its occurrence. Therefore, the statement that multiple sclerosis is not preventable is true.

    Rate this question:

  • 5. 

    Medication completely treats MS.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    Patients only experience less frequent or fewer "episodes," or symptoms.

    Rate this question:

  • 6. 

    How much more likely are women to get MS than men?

    • A.

      10 times as likely

    • B.

      5 times as likely

    • C.

      2 times as likely

    Correct Answer
    C. 2 times as likely
    Explanation
    Women are 2 times more likely to get MS than men. This means that the probability of women developing MS is twice as high as that of men.

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    You can still function with MS.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The statement suggests that it is possible to function with MS, which refers to multiple sclerosis. While MS may pose challenges and limitations, individuals with this condition can still lead fulfilling lives by managing their symptoms, seeking appropriate medical care, and making necessary lifestyle adjustments. Therefore, the statement is true.

    Rate this question:

  • 8. 

    Which of the following are symptoms of MS?

    • A.

      Weakness

    • B.

      Loss of sight

    • C.

      Loss of bowel control

    • D.

      Internal Bleeding

    • E.

      Poor Coordination

    • F.

      Paralysis

    • G.

      Loss of ballance

    • H.

      Cancer

    Correct Answer(s)
    A. Weakness
    C. Loss of bowel control
    E. Poor Coordination
    F. Paralysis
    G. Loss of ballance
    Explanation
    The correct answer includes symptoms that are commonly associated with multiple sclerosis (MS). Weakness, loss of bowel control, poor coordination, paralysis, and loss of balance are all symptoms that can occur in individuals with MS. These symptoms are a result of the damage to the nerves in the central nervous system caused by the disease. However, internal bleeding and cancer are not typically considered symptoms of MS.

  • 9. 

    You can become paralyzed from MS.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Multiple Sclerosis (MS) is a chronic autoimmune disease that affects the central nervous system. It occurs when the immune system mistakenly attacks the protective covering of nerve fibers, causing communication problems between the brain and the rest of the body. Depending on the severity and location of the nerve damage, MS can lead to various symptoms, including paralysis or partial paralysis. Therefore, it is possible to become paralyzed from MS.

    Rate this question:

  • 10. 

    MS is a disease that challenges your brain to recieve signals from your nerves.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Multiple sclerosis (MS) is indeed a disease that affects the central nervous system, including the brain. In MS, the immune system mistakenly attacks the protective covering of nerve fibers, called myelin, leading to disruptions in the transmission of signals between the brain and the rest of the body. This can result in a wide range of symptoms, including problems with coordination, balance, vision, and cognition. Therefore, the statement that MS challenges the brain to receive signals from nerves is accurate.
