Multiple sclerosis (MS) is a chronic inflammatory demyelinating disease of the central nervous system. Along with epilepsy, it is one of the most common neurological diseases in young adults. Most patients are between 20 and 40 years old when symptoms first appear. In more than one-third of patients, MS begins with sensory disturbances: Arms or legs feel numb or the skin tingles. The aim of therapeutic measures is to maintain the patient's independence in everyday life. The best achievable quality of life should be ensured for the patient.
Abdiyah Alsharif was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis several years ago. As her symptoms worsened, she searched for a rehabilitation clinic and came to Kliniken Schmieder Allensbach.
"My name is Abdiyah. I´m 32 years old and I´m living in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia. From February until June 2021, I was treated in the Kliniken Schmieder in Allensbach. 10 years ago, I was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis. During the last years, my symptoms got worse. During that time I started to search for a rehabilitation clinic, which is specialized in treating my disease. Since I couldn´t find a suitable clinic in my country, I decided to go to Czech Republic or Germany, which are famous for their rehabilitation. I compared the medical teams, the quality certificates, experiences, and patient stories of different clinics and decided to come to Kliniken Schmieder in Germany.
On the first day of my admission, I was a little stressed out, frightened, and very excited about what to expect from my stay here. However, the whole team of therapists, nurses, doctors, and the International department was amazing. With their friendliness and their support, they really helped me to settle in and made my start in the clinic much easier.
My feeling now is great when I see the improvements I made at Schmieder. It made me happier and stronger and I trust myself a lot more than I did before my rehabilitation. If I continue all the exercises I´m sure that nobody will belief my story, when I tell them how I was before.
I really recommend a treatment in Kliniken Schmieder. They have an amazing team and they have the experience to help you. Thank you, Kliniken Schmieder, for helping me and improving my health!"
