What is Multiple Sclerosis?


Multiple sclerosis (MS) happens when your immune system attacks myelin, the sheath around your nerve cells. This results in nerve damage, disrupting communication between your brain and the rest of your body. MS is a chronic, or long-lasting disease that impacts the brain, spinal cord, and optic nerves, affecting various bodily functions. There is currently no cure for MS, but various treatments are available to help manage symptoms, slow disease progression, and improve the quality of life for people living with MS. #MultipleSclerosisAwarenessMonth
