Neuromyelitis Optica Treatment

Neuromyelitis Optica or Extensively longitudinal transverse myelitis is a central nervous system disorder characterized by inflammation and demyelination of nerve of the eyes, i.e. optic nerve and spinal cord. Its other names are Devic's disease or Neuromyelitis Optica spectrum. This is a rare autoimmune disorder in which immune cells of the body attack optic nerve and spinal cord. It can happen after certain infections or can be associated with any other autoimmune disease. Neuromyelitis Optica can result in adverse conditions like blindness or paralysis. However, it is a reversible condition but its attack can result in severe and permanent damage.


  • Sudden pain in eyes

  • Blurred vision

  • Blindness in severe cases

  • Loss of color vision

  • Pain in arms and legs

  • Weakness of the extremities

  • Numbness

  • Reduced sensation

  • Paralysis

  • Loss of control on bowel and bladder

  • Nausea and vomiting

  • Uncontrolled hiccups

  • Stiffness of neck

  • Headache


Its exact cause is not known. It is not a genetically inherited disease but usually, people suffering from Neuromyelitis Optica have any other autoimmune disease like diabetes (type 1), psoriasis, rheumatoid, and vitiligo. Extensively longitudinal transverse myelitis is an autoimmune disease in which body's own immunity attack the healthy cells and destroy them resulting in abnormal functioning or loss of function of an organ.


  • The doctor will examine for vision, thinking, speech, strength and reflexes, i.e. neurological examination.

  • Brain MRI (Magnetic resonance imaging)

  • Spinal cord MRI

  • Lumbar puncture to test the levels of immune cells, antibodies and proteins


Conventional treatment for Neuromyelitis Optica usually aims at reversing the recent symptoms and preventing future attacks. Generally, steroids are used to treat inflammation and its associated symptoms and other drugs too.


According to Ayurveda, any autoimmune disease is caused due to the intentional not accidental attack of immune cells on particular cells. This occurs because 'Ama' gets deposited and immune cells attack to get this Ama removed from it. But during this process, healthy cells to which Ama is deposited also gets killed resulting in autoimmune disease.
