Iman Ali MS

Iman Ali is one of Pakistan’s most recognized supermodels and actresses. She made her big-screen debut in 2007 with ‘Khuda Kay Liye’ and won over individuals with her performance.

In 2006, when Iman was at the peak of her amazing career at the age of 26 she started to feel fatigued despite having a good 8-hours of sleep. She realized that while reading her scripts, her vision would go blurry.

Every day seemed to be becoming a bigger challenge for the diva. She was then diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis (MS).

Iman rolled out a detailed video talking about her condition and how that every day is a battle for her, not knowing what will happen under #intezaarnakaro, #letsbeatms campaign.

Iman mentions that getting help on time is crucial and will enable MS victims to live a better quality of life . She received support from family and friends and is happily married to Babar Bhatti.

Iman first came forth with her story by becoming an MS ambassador and by sharing awareness about this disease in November 2019 where she shared that she has been battling with MS for 15 years.

#repost @imanalyofficial ・・・ Maybe some of you know already that I am living with Multiple Sclerosis. It is a part of my life now and my lifestyle has completely changed. My speech, movements, everything is impacted. But I am fighting on, like all the other patients who are living with this disease. MS affects the nerves in the brain, and the most common symptom is blurred vision. When there is a relapse, the blurred vision is also accompanied by dizziness. So in honor of World MS Day, 30th May – I am uploading a #Blurfie and urge you all to show support. Change your profile pictures to a Blurfie. #LivingWithMS #WorldMSDay #LetsBeatMS #IntezaarNaKaro . . . Here’s what you need to do Step 1: Take a picture while shaking your phone lightly Step 2: Apply the Facebook picture filter Step 3: Upload it on your social profiles Step 4: Use the hashtags #Blurfie #LetsBeatMS

#repost @umairhmirza ・・・ Lets raise awareness by showing support to Multiple Scleriosis patients. Today is World MS Day and let me take this #BlurSelfie opportunity to talk about this disease. There are 4000 + MS patients in Pakistan. MS is a chronic and debilitating disease in which the immune system abnormally attacks the insulation and support around the nerve cells (myelin sheath) in the brain, spinal cord and optic nerves, causing inflammation and consequent damage. This damage severely impacts the quality of life of patients, and they may experience various symptoms such as blurry vision, temporary loss of eyesight, feeling of tingling and numbness, muscle weakness, pain and imbalance, problems with movement and coordination, inability to focus and think, difficulty in holding urine, sexual dysfunction and frequent fatigue. #LetsBeatMS #IntezaarNaKaro #Blurfie #WorldMSDay

What is MS?

MS is a potentially disabling disease of the brain and spinal cord. In this condition, the immune system attacks the protective sheath (myelin) that covers nerve fibers and causes communication problems between your brain and the rest of your body.

What are the symptoms?

The early symptoms of MS include:

  • vision problems
  • tingling and numbness
  • pains and spasms
  • weakness or fatigue
  • balance problems or dizziness
  • bladder issues
  • sexual dysfunction
  • cognitive problems

Does it have a Cure?

There is no cure for multiple sclerosis. However, there are treatments that typically focus on speeding recovery from attacks, slowing the progression of the disease and managing MS symptoms.

How can I get Help?

If you or someone you know has felt similar symptoms, you need to visit a neurologist ASAP. It is also important for you to get authentic and relevant information in regards to MS, which you can do so by clicking here.

Delaying a visit to the doctor can prove to be fatal. Join the fight against MS ab aur #intezaarnakaro!
