Multiple Sclerosis and Cerebral Palsy?
You said "Have a person with CP who having anxiety, visual, mood, pain, and sleep too much problem. Can the person mistaken and not be diagnose as MS?" The answer is NO. If the person has CP - it would have already been diagnosed at a very young age. For the symptoms you described, to be diagnosed with CP, those symptoms would have been around since birth. There are cases people are diagnosed with CP as adults... but the symptoms are so mild they don't get picked until there was a particular problem which needed investigating. But for the symptoms you described... if it was CP it would have to be present since birth and NOT just present itself now. The symptoms are alike but CP is permanent and the area of the body that is affected will ALWAYS show those symptoms. The damage to the brain is permanent and manifested since birth. MS symptoms can come and go. You said she "act childlish when she get rejected from people. " and " being abrasive socially " - even that does NOT sound like MS. There might be some other cause in her brain. I wish you well in finding some answers to her condition. That's my opinion. Hope that makes sense.

What effect does multiple sclerosis have on nerve impulse transmission?
MS causes demyelinization. Demyelinization is loss of myelin. When myelin is damaged, nerve impulse conduction is faulty or absent, causing impaired body functions or sensations. Exactly which sympoms occur is determined by the parts of the brain affected. The myeline can attempt to heal itself, forming a plaque or scar. But the nerve never returns to 100% function.
