What is MS

Multiple Sclerosis (MS) is a progressive autoimmune disease of the central nervous system that attacks the brain, spinal cord and nerve fibers to the eyes. Symptoms can vary widely and include blurred vision, weak limbs, tingling sensations, unsteadiness and fatigue. MS is progressive and often can be incapacitating. There are no specific drugs to cure MS, it can make life unpredictable, but symptoms can be managed and treated successfully.

The disease is not contagious or infectious. Study shows that people are diagnosed with MS between the ages of 20 and 50, and women twice as frequently as men. It is variable and it's very different in each patient. MS is not preventable or curable yet, it is not contagious. It's a rare illness in Asian countries, more common among the Caucasians.
