$42.99 USD - $47.99 USD
Transverse myelitis (TM) is an inflammation of both sides of one section of the spinal cord. This neurological disorder often damages the insulating material covering nerve cell fibers (myelin). Transverse myelitis interrupts the messages that the spinal cord nerves send throughout the body. This can cause pain, muscle weakness, paralysis, sensory problems, or bladder and bowel dysfunction. Treatments include IV steroids, plasma transfusion, pain medicine, and medications to treat other complications. Transverse Myelitis (TM) is represented by the blue awareness ribbon and awareness products are available in the Unchargeables Shop.
