Multiple Sclerosis (MS)
Multiple Sclerosis is a disease of the brain and spinal cord. The disease causes the body's own immune system to attack nerve fibers and destroy its protective sheath. This causes communication problems between the brain and the rest of the body. Eventually, there will be permanent damage to the nerves.
- numbness or weakness usually on one side of the body at a time
- lack of coordination
- blurry vision
- double vision
Multiple Sclerosis currently does not have a cure, but treatments can be extremely beneficial in slowing down progression of the disease, recovering from attacks, and managing symptoms.
