How many days in a week do you feel like lying down the entire day, or walk with clothes soaked into water or that you are carrying a ton of weight on your shoulders? If you have Multiple Sclerosis (MS), you may reply, every day!
Fatigue is one of the earliest and long-lasting symptoms of Multiple Sclerosis. It is also a a symptom unique to MS
The National MS Society reported that 80% of patients with Multiple Sclerosis have fatigue. The distinctive quality of MS fatigue is that it comes to not go away.
Fatigue is a long-lasting symptom of MS; therefore, It is essential for the patients to know the symptoms of MS-related fatigue, how to manage it and what f===ood and activities to avoid to prevent it from worsening.
Difference between Tiredness, Fatigue and MS fatigue:
Tiredness is a routine body feeling. One may experience it after work and at the end of the day. A person would feel fresh after taking a bath or a nap. Fatigue is; however, not the same.
Fatigue is not relieved by a sleep. It lasts for longer period of time, some days or
- Tiredness: Lasts for few hours
- Fatigue: last for a month or less
- Chronic fatigue: lasts for more than a month to six months or longer.
Here is a difference in the following info-graphic among tiredness, acute fatigue and chronic fatigue.
In MS, a person experiences chronic fatigue.
Characteristics of MS fatigue
• Easy come, difficult to go.
• Gets worse as the day passes,
• May occur even after a good night’s sleep,
• Aggravates by humidity and heat,
• Likely to interfere in a person’s ability to function well at home and at work.
• May come with depression and gets worse as time passes.
Tiredness is just one of the symptoms of MS-related fatigue. There is a lot more involved in it than just weariness. A sufferer of Multiple Sclerosis should notice these symptoms. He/She may have multiple symptoms.
• Consistent tiredness even after sleep
• Heat and humidity worsen fatigue.
• Stiff shoulders
• Limbs and eyes feel heavy.
• lack of motivation,
• inability to concentrate
• anxiety, or
What people say!
People who have never experienced MS-related fatigue can never ever describe how it feels like.
They may hold strong views that MS patients make excuses and don’t try hard enough, or don’t even want to take any action. They will give looks full of surprises to those who say “It’s too hot today. Turn on the air conditioner, I will get tired!”
The secret of a successful affair is good management.
Whatever the affair is poor management ruins it. It is essential for an MS patient to manage fatigue to live a healthy and relaxed life.
Manage MS fatigue:
There is only one way left for patients suffering from MS-related fatigue, manage it.
They have no other choice left!
Some medications cause depression which is a factor responsible for causing fatigue. Consult your doctor if the medicine you use cause weariness.
Here are some tips you can use to manage fatigue:
• Daily exercises: Lack of movement makes muscles week which require more energy. A person has to stay mentally, physically and socially active.
• Eat well: Try to cut down on caffeine, deep fried foods, red meat, fast food, dairy products,
• Efficiently use your energy level.
• Drink plenty of water: don’t dehydrate yourself. Drink eight glasses of water every day.
• Keep your body and mind cool: Keeping the body cool means to avoid prolong presence in heat.
keeping the mind cool means to stay relax and avoid stress.
• Divert your attention away from fatigue. Involve in activities like reading and knitting
• Deep breathing,
• Stay away from energy drinks and soft dirks: Those beverages contain high amount of sugar and caffeine. These also include tea and coffee.

Multiple Sclerosis patients often feel foggy. Ever wondered what is Brain Fog, and what connection does it has with Multiple Sclerosis (MS)?
If you are an MS patient, remember the time when you felt you couldn’t concentrate, couldn’t remember important things, had a heavy head or had a lot of confusion in your mind? This is called brain fog or mental fatigue. Let us tell you that you are not alone in going through that experience!
Brain Fog is a common phenomenon in patients with Multiple Sclerosis (MS). You must address it and get rid of the factors which cause it; otherwise, you’re going to face personal and/or professional problems.
Brain Fog can steal happiness, motivation and peace from your life. Many factors are responsible for it.
In MS patients, lesions or inflammations in the brain are the main culprits for that experience. So, if MS patients observe any of the following symptoms, then there is inflammation in their brains.
- Trouble sleeping through the night or insomnia
- Forgetfulness And Memory Problems,
- Low Motivation,
- Trouble Concentrating,
- Mildly Depressed,
- Feeling Hopeless,
- Feeling confused,
- Difficulty Exercising,
- Slow Processing of information,
- Unable to focus,
- Poor memory, and
- Stuttering or stammering when speaking,
The primary cause of brain fog in MS patients is those we stated above. We now discuss the external factors trigger Brain Fog.
Following external factors participate in causing brain fog in MS patients:
- Stress and fatigue,
- Poor diet,
- Poor blood circulation. and
- Lack of sleep,
Stress is more powerful than you think it is. Everyday stress does not cause Brain Fog, but severe stress develops it. Stress also results in fatigue which is another cause of the condition.
Whenever you experience brain fog, the first thing to notice should always be your diet. What did you eat which caused that feeling? How much sugar did you take? Maintained blood sugar is very important for your brain’s health. Make sure that you eat less:
Foods which suck up water in you:
Many dairy products including bakery-made biscuits and wafers dehydrate. Keep a jug of water with you if you eat some.
These include foods, such as frozen foods and other FMCG products. You may wonder, why processed foods? Processed foods contain an ingredient called monosodium glutamate (MSG), neurotoxins which cause Brain Fog. The ingredient is usually not written as an ingredient, but you can guess the food may contain MSG. Just keep this rule in mind; the saltier a food is the more chances that it contains MSG.
Foods with high sugar amount:
These include, but are not limited to, carbonated drinks (especially, diet drinks). Diet drinks contain artificial sweeteners, Aspartame. High sugar in carbonated drinks disturbs blood-sugar. Your pancreas works more to produce insulin for that increased sugar.
This disease makes MS more difficult and the patients susceptible to Brain Fog. MS patients need energy in their brain. Glucose is the primary source of energy for the brain.
Fluctuation in the glucose level results in short-term mental fatigue.
The brain needs water to function. It is the basic substance which composes brain.
Taking in and accumulating sugar can only help get low-grade infections, such as Candida yeast or bacterial overgrowth in the gut. In addition, these low-grade infections increase the rate of release of pro-inflammatory messages.
Poor blood circulation:
Poor blood circulation in your brain may cause brain fog. Daily massage your head with your fingers and with almond oil.
Lack of Sleep:
Everyone needs a good night’s sleep. Resting at night is important for the brain to recover its health and functions.
Sleep irregularity can welcome emotional and mental stress, And stress causes heavy head and foggy brain.
Prevention & Cure:
We also advise to not skip meals. The primary cause of foggy brain is the problem with food. Take food rich in Omega 3, 6 and9 fatty acids, complex B vitamins and magnesium.
Include fishes in your diet. Fishes have Omega 3 fatty acid in them. You can also intake Omega 3 supplements such as Seven Seas which is rich in Omega 3 fatty acids.
They are killers. Soft-drinks have a lot of sugar, and diet carbonated beverages have artificial sugar, aspartame. The increased sugar may result in a disease which itself causes Brain Fog, diabetes.
Smoking is injurious to health!
This phrase is not a cliché but it has a lot of meanings. Along with many other negative effects, smoking produces free radicals in your body. Free radicals can cause brain fog and poor metal health.
We have discussed this along with some tips to do so in an earlier post. Don’t forget to check that out. In brief, work on your breathing, take deep breaths, practice meditation, and try to be as relaxed as possible.
Take Lot of zZZ:
Humans need 7-9 hours of uninterrupted sleep. Make sure that you take good-night-sleep and have a little nap too.
As a permanent patient with Multiple Sclerosis, you have responsibly of your health. Remember that a healthy brain results in a healthy body.

Majority of intellects in Pakistan firmly believe the British Raj – when Britain ruled over India from 1857 to 1947 – was a flourishing period. Their views depict their lack of knowledge about history. Not knowing that the impact of British rule on India was very very negative!
Britain destroyed each and every aspect of Indian culture and economy, especially those which are related to Muslims.
India was more prosperous than it was during and before the British Raj. In this article, we will explain how Britain looted India, what are the impacts of British rule on the Indian economy, and how she destroyed its economy, architecture, education, religion & culture.
Britain in India:
Britain set its foot in India in 1600 C.E. Akbar’s son, Jahangir, was ruling India during that time. Whether Jahangir was a corrupt and irresponsible ruler is a different story. History proved that allowing Britain to form trade with India and its company – the East India Company – to enter the land was his biggest blunder
Britain Destroying Indian Industry:
At the time Britain stepped foot on India, the country was participating with 23% of global GDP.
By the end of the eighteenth century, Britain was shifting its method of earning from the land to the industry. India was a mouth-watering economy then. She was a country which was as manufacturing as it was agricultural. For Britain’s industry and economy to work effectively, It was important for it to deindustrialize India.
A first look at the history gives a clear thought of the British’s motive to loot all the riches of the land. As an implication, it was mandatory for Britain to make India its colony. Jawaharlal Nehru, India’s first Prime Minister, stated this observation in his book, the discovery of India.
Impacts on poverty:
Britain applied every policy to destroy Indian industry and decay its agriculture. The idea was to lower her status from a manufacturing country to an agricultural country. They (the British) not only looted the land’s treasures, but also the word ‘loot’ in Hindi dictionary along with the word’s true spirit.
Poverty was on the rise in India due to British despotic policies. Britain was successful in lowering India to the point she is today.
Britain sought to destroy Indian economy
Colonial Britain tried its every effort to destroy Indian economy. The imposed tariffs and duties on Indian products aided her to achieve those goals.
- Britain left India with less than 4% share of global GDP.
- India became world’s biggest purchaser of Britain’s finished goods
- Indian share in global exports dropped to less than 2% from 27%.
- India was exporting raw material and importing finished goods from Britain.
- Violence and racism was the reality of colonialism.
Railways and roads were built to serve
- British aid to India was 0.4% of its total
Indians were purchasing products from Britain at higher prices for the products they were producing at lower costs.
Pakistan follows a similar practice. They locally produce goods at lower rates and buy goods after those are given a brand-name at very higher prices.
Interestingly, Pakistani people brag about using ‘foreign goods’ and look down upon local people because they use ‘home-made products.
Destroying Indian Culture:
- Ethnic, racial & religious tension were the direct result of the British experience.
- Most of the Islamic schools-of-thoughts are formation of the era of the British raj.
- British soldiers engraved their names on historical monuments, such as the Red Fort of Lahore, to ruin the archeological remains.
Should the people of then India, which has now decomposed into Pakistan, India and Bangladesh, demand reparation? I believe Britain should return the treasures they looted along with an apology.

You had only seen in Hollywood movies that a scientist wears freaky-looking headsets and gadgets which read his mind. He could then control objects. Let us tell you, it’s not in science-fiction movies anymore. Such headsets are real now.
Prius by Deeplocal
Parlee and Deeplocal created a bike that actually allows its rider to shift gears using only his/her thoughts. The custom helmet has sensors which will detect brain signals and communicate with the bike.
It is also equipped with an iPhone app which detects rider’s
- Hear rate
The bike; however, will not be available in the market anytime soon. Maybe after 10 years, it will be.
Emotiv EPOC is made by Emotiv systems, an Australia-based company. The company develops brain-computer interfaces based on electroencephalography technology (EEG).
With EPOC you can control keyboard and mouse pointer on a computer or on a laptop. Emotiv EPOC has a gyroscope in the headpiece. The gyroscope helps you to move the mouse cursor by moving your head.
The headset needs training before use so that it can detect your brain signals and interpret what actually you want to do. Emotiv EPOC can also be used to play games – Cool, isn’t it. A few games are available on Emotiv’s website to play with EPOC. One of them is Emotipong which is a regular old pong.
This is one of my favourites. BrainDriver is actually a project conceived by German professor Paul Rojas. It utilizes the power features of the Emotiv EEG headset.
This means that you can control the car’s movements with your thoughts only.This will prove a blessing for handicapped and special people. This is the reason why I like this.
The dutch-giant Philips developed a lighting system which can turn on and off light with thoughts only. This is another blessing for paralyzed people.
The person wears a headset which reads brain signals It then connects to a tablet computer that transmits lighting commands to the Philips Hue lighting control system. The control system turns light on or off and adjusts brightness &colourss of LED lights.
Created by a Toronto-based company called InteraXon, MUSE can relax your brain in a stressful and overwhelmed day. The headband has sensors to measure and track your brain activity.
It works with an accompanying mobile app called Calm to train your mind to be more focused and calm.
DARPA Prosthetic Arm
This is another favourite gadget of mine. This gadget is an example of the benefits technology can bring to humans. DARPA’s Prosthetic Arm is a blessing for those who can’t lift anything because they don’t have any limb.
Fired up by brain cells, the prosthetic arm can be controlled with the mind. This makes carrying out regular activities easy.
You can control this little gadget by Puzzlebox with your brain using an EEG headset, like Nuerosky MindWave headset. Just relax, concentrate and make that baby fly in the air.
Its source code, hardware schematics, 3D models, and the step-by-step hacking instructions are published freely online.
The gadgets are great, but each one comes with a unique ‘headset’. This means that for every activity, I need to wear a separate headset. Wear the Emotiv EPOC when working on a computer. And when stressed up and want to relax, put it off and put on the MUSE headset! Anyway, these were some gadgets – in baby stages – you can use to control physical objects.

My mom used to buy a dozen noodles for me to eat whenever I was hungry. I also remember my cousins and I were hungry and wanted something delicious to eat. So, we requested my dad to buy those for us.
In Pakistan, three brands of instant noodles are available for
- Nestle Maggi (40% market share),
- Unilever’s Knorr (46% market share) and
- Shoop from Shan foods (11% market share)
Problems with Maggi Noodles:
Maggi is facing survival issues in neighbouring India where several lab tests revealed the use of certain ingredients which were absolutely health-risk for humans. This has created panic among Indians and they are not willing to eat Maggi anymore.
People have abandoned Maggi after breaking of horrifying news about the use of Lead and Monosodium Glutamate (MSG) to a dangerous extent.
Maggi Matter shook India:
In 2015, several tests revealed the use of Monosodium Glutamate (MSG) and lead to the excess amount of what allowed. The Indian government was quite vigilant and quick in responding to the matter.
Several Indian states namely Delhi, Maharashtra, Punjab, Assam, Bihar, Madhya Pradesh, Tamil Nadu, Jammu and Kashmir, Gujarat, Uttarakhand, and Goa banned Maggi 2 minutes’ noodles. Afterwards, Nestle had to withdraw its stock from the market
The government of India dragged Nestle to the National Consumer Disputes Redressal Commission (NCDRC) for unfair trade practices and misleading advertisements.
In addition, the government put a charge of IR 1000 crore as the penalty over the company.
That’s not it, central food safety regulator (FSSAI) ordered recall all the variants of Maggi from the market terming them unsafe and hazardous for human consumption.
India TV reported a source saying,
“On behalf of the Indian consumers, the Department of Consumer Affairs has now filed a petition in the NCDRC. It is based on the order of FSSAI saying that Nestle indulged in unfair trade practices and misleading advertisements,”
The source added
“We have sought Additional Solicitor General’s advice in this matter and he will appear on behalf of the government in NCDRC.”
Cases on Celebrities:
A case against Amitabh Bachan, Preety Zinta, and Madhuri Dixit were filled in a district court in Bihar for becoming part of Maggi’s advertisements. Amitabh Bachan had to appear on media to say that he was ready to pay any penalty if charged.
“I will fully cooperate whatever the law says”, he said. He also said that he wasn’t endorsing the product anymore.
Nestle’s take on the issue:
That was about how Indian government and public see the issue. Now, we tell you Nestle’s take on the matter.
B.N. Kumar, executive director of Concept Public Relations and national president of the Public Relations Council of India describes Nestle CEO’s efforts as “too little, too late”. Adding further, Kumar said
“Nestle was clearly caught with its noodles in a knot,”
Nestle took about two months to respond to the situation. I wonder what they had been doing all that time, eating noodles!.
The big loss:
Nestle had to withdraw millions of tonnes of Maggi and suffered a $45 million hit. It suffered a loss of IR 2000 crore.
Its share price dropped after the news, and only regained slightly when the company CEO Paul Bulcke made a statement that Maggi was safe to consume.
Maggi in Pakistan
In the show “Dunya Kamran Khan Kay Sath”, the anchor, Kamran Khan, pointed towards the unavailability of Maggi noodles in wholesale markets. Wholesalers say that the noodles were not available in the market for four months.
The company, on its website, said that the noodles were safe and halal. They were manufactured in the Kabirwala plant near Multan. According to, Waqar Ahmed, head of Corporate Affairs, Nestle, Pakistan,
“We are producing it, we are confident, our product is absolutely safe”
said Ahmed in the show yesterday. He also said that all the safety tests are performed on the product from raw material to finished product.
Don’t eat something only for its delicious taste; consider its side effects on your health too.
Nestle was sinking in the neighbour India. A massive unrest in the country and reaction to a lawsuit of IR1000 crores has hit the company very hard not only in India but also throughout the world.
We seriously need quality check here in Pakistan. Nestle has been constantly denying the presence of any substance at a harmful-for-humans level, but this is what anyone would do. Take actions before its too late, not only against Maggi but Knorr, Shoop and other products as well. If it’s not time now then what are we waiting for.
How do you know whether a certain product contains MSG?

It’s an old news but is worth sharing with our readers
This is what you should do when the person you rely on is against you.
Don’t fear the intensity of opposing-wind*, Oh! Eagle
It only blows to help you fly even higher.
I don’t know whether the Chinese have read this verse by Sayyed Sadiq Hussain Shah (not by Allama Iqbal) but what they did was exactly according to its spirit.
What if the odds are against you, think positive, they are meant to benefit you.
Chinese scientist Yoton Lu has outlined the blueprints of China’s very own supercomputer chips. The Chinese were forced to do so following a ban by the US on Intel processor exports to the country. Uncle Sam didn’t want the high-end Xeon and Xeon Phi parts to enter China’s defence labs and its supercomputer industry.
China needed these parts as they were essential in building powerful supercomputers. And the Chinese came up with a workaround.
The platform reports Dr Lu saying that China’s upcoming supercomputer the Tianhe-2A – ready to work before the end of 2016 – will be powered by the homemade Digital-Signal Processors (DSPs),
- The machine is expected to perform at a staggering 100PFLOPs or 100,000 calculations per seconds at its peak.
- Uses the power of 18MW.
- System RAM: 3 petabytes
- Processor: Tianhe-2A will use the Chinese DSP instead of Neon Phi which is now being used in Tianhe-2.
- The Tianhe-2A will be build from 18000 nodes.
- Running file-system 30PB.
Uses of DSPs
Normally DSPs are used in doing audio and signal processing, speech recognition, video compression and so on.
Speaking about the uses of DSPs, The Platform co-editor Nicole Hemsoth reports, “The Tiahne-2 machine (and its eventual successor sporting the DSP accelerators) is housed at the National University of Defense Technology (NUDT) in China.“
“DSPs are frequently used in embedded military applications, including remote sensing, radar, and other activities — and Lu did tell the group this week that NUDT has had extensive experience with DSPs.”
This is one of the best examples of the
“if you won’t let us do, we’ll do it ourselves”
So, follow this approach in your lives. Don’t think negative as if all are against you. Don’t just take a seat and put your one hand over other. Remember what Schwarzenegger said “no pain, no gain!”
