Transverse Myelitis

Transverse Myelitis (TM) is a neurological condition that involves inflammation of the spinal cord. The spinal cord is a long, delicate tube of nerve tissue that runs from the brain down through the center of the back. It is responsible for transmitting messages between the brain and the rest of the body, controlling movement and sensation.

In Transverse Myelitis, the inflammation affects the spinal cord's transverse (horizontal) part, which can result in a range of symptoms depending on the location and severity of the inflammation. These symptoms may include weakness, numbness, loss of sensation in the arms and legs, problems with bowel and bladder control, and sexual function. In severe cases, transverse myelitis can cause paralysis or the inability to move one's limbs.
