Inflammation of the spinal cord, which damages the insulating material covering the nerve cell fibers (myelin), is called transverse myelitis. This condition interrupts the signals that the spinal cord sends throughout the body, which results in pain, muscle weakness, paralysis, bladder dysfunction, sensory problems, and bowel dysfunction. The exact cause of this disease is unknown, but some of the factors and conditions that seem to trigger transverse myelitis are viral infections, multiple sclerosis, autoimmune diseases (lupus, Sjogren’s syndrome), and infectious diseases vaccinations. Transverse myelitis can lead to chronic pain, partial or total paralysis, sexual dysfunction, depression, and anxiety.
