Analysis of a case study Background information about this client in this case study is as followers. The patient is a 30 year old female who has been experiencing signs and symptoms of weakness, numbness, visual disturbances and mood swings over for couple months now. Since client symptoms were becoming a repetition, so CT test was done and the result confirmed a demyelination of the white matter of brain and spinal cord, helping the doctor to conclude this is a factor to why the client is experiences this neurological deficits. Client doctor prescribed her Prednisone which has a positive affect helping to confirm the client diagnosis of Multiple Sclerosis. Researchers have concluded that Multiple Sclerosis occurs whereby the…show more content…
The Client symptoms confirm that she is experiencing a Relapsing Remitting.

Physiology Individual body functions with the nervous system. The nervous system is divided into two parts, central nervous system and the peripheral nervous system. The central nervous system consists of brain and spinal cord while the peripheral nervous system consists of the nerves, such as cranial nerves. The cranial nerves job is to connect the central nervous system to the different types of organs in the body. Our neurons consist of cells which hold the genetic information needed to make protein. Dendrites receive impulses from other cells at the synapses and transmit them to the cell body. Axons carry outgoing information to target cells. Neuron has only one axon that includes Axon Hillock. Axon Hillock is the originate place for action potential; Axon collaterals are the branches of axon; Axon terminals which are the sites of neurotransmitter release myelin sheath. The body neuron usually generates an electrical signal and this result in the release of neurotransmitter. The neurotransmitter purpose is to serve as a chemical messenger that enables cell communication among other cells. Myelin sheath is insulation that wraps around the each axon for about 20 to 200 times. Their segments are significantly separated from each other by node of Ranvier, and the Myelin sheath function to increase the conduction velocity of action potentials. Myelin can be produce in either the CNS or the
