Transverse Myelitis

Transverse Myelitis is a spinal cord disorder that leads to inflammation on one or both sides of the spine. This spinal cord disorder also damages the protective myelin that covers the nerve cell fibres. Transverse myelitis can interrupt the messages your spinal cord sends to your nerves. People suffering from this condition can experience paralysis, muscle weakness and sensory problems.
