Multiple sclerosis (MS) is a disease caused by the immune system attacking myelin, A protective covering over the nerves. This disrupts important communication that is needed between the brain and the rest of the body.
The exact cause of multiple sclerosis is unknown. Individuals between the ages of 15 and 60 years are more likely to have it.
Symptoms vary from each patient because it depends on the damage done to nerves and which nerves are affected.
It is common for patients with multiple sclerosis to have new symptoms that develop and them partially improve, followed by a remission period where there are no new symptoms for a while.
Unfortunately, there is no cure for multiple sclerosis. There are ways to manage symptoms and slow down the progression of the disease.
