Multiple Sclerosis Awareness Week

MS Society

Multiple sclerosis (MS) is a condition that affects the body’s central nervous system (CNS). By the latest estimates, over 2.8 million people worldwide have MS.

It’s a disorder that causes your body’s immune system to attack myelin, a coating that insulates some of your nerve fibers. This process is known as demyelination.

When myelin is damaged or destroyed, it affects the nerve impulses traveling to and from the brain and spinal cord, causing a wide variety of symptoms in MS.
