Multiple Sclerosis (MS) is a chronic disease that attacks the central nervous system (CNS) and often leaves those diagnosed disabled. Unpredictable by nature, scientists believe MS occurs when a yet to be identified environmental factor triggers the immune system to attack the brain, spinal cord, and optic nerves. Specifically, the myelin, which insulate and protect nerve fibers, become damaged as a result of this immune response. This in turn disrupts the flow of information along the CNS, disrupting the brain’s ability to communicate with various parts of the body. MS gets its name from the process of damage and scarification that forms in “multiple” locations along nerve fibers. <br><br>Symptoms vary between patients due to the unforeseeable incidence and extent of damage to the CNS, though people commonly experience numbness, tingling, mood changes, memory problems, loss or limitation of motor function, vision problems and blindness, spasticity, tremors, and paralysis. MS occurs at varying degrees of severity with most exhibiting relapsing/remitting cases to begin where symptoms come and go in concentrated episodes. Others experience Progressive MS characterized by symptoms that slowly progress in intensity over an extended period of time, making it more difficult to treat.
