Major Symptoms of Secondary Progressive Multiple Sclerosis

Secondary progressive multiple sclerosis (SPMS) is an autoimmune disease whose main symptoms include:

1. Motor and sensory nerve dysfunction: SPMS usually affects the patient's motor and sensory nerves, leading to muscle weakness and abnormal sensation.

5. Photoallergy: Some patients may be allergic to sunlight or other strong light, causing skin symptoms such as itching, sunburn, and photosensitivity.

6. Oral and Nasal Ulcers: SPMS may cause oral and nasal ulcers, especially if the patient has limited mobility or lack of exercise.

7. Dyspnea: Due to the neurological dysfunction caused by the disease, SPMS may cause breathing difficulties, including shortness of breath and difficulty breathing. These symptoms may affect a patient's daily life, but not all patients experience them. If you have these symptoms, talk to your doctor for proper diagnosis and treatment advice.
