What is MS

Multiple Sclerosis also known as MS is a chronic disease that attacks the central nervous system, i.e. the brain, spinal cord and optic nerves. In severe cases the patient becomes paralyzed and/or blind, while in milder cases there may be numbness in the limbs.

Multiple Sclerosis (MS) is a chronic, nonfatal disease that causes the deterioration of the protective covering of the nerve cells (myelin sheath/white matter) in the brain and spinal cord. This results in the hardening of various parts of the nervous system and the development of scars or the lesions on the disturbed nerves.

The sheath of myelin around the nerve fibres enables messages to be passed fr om the central nervous system to other parts of the body. MS is one of the most common neurological disorders among young adults (between the ages of 20 and 40)
