Some of the first signs of the disease are vision problems in one eye, problems with sensation, difficulties in moving the arms and the legs, as well as impaired balance. Other warning symptoms include numbness or tingling on the face, the body or the extremities, problems with bladder function, intense emotional fluctuations (e.g. uncontrollable laughter or crying), gastrointestinal problems, heavy dizziness (vertigo). If you identify any of these symptoms, you must see a doctor immediately.
