About MS

  • Multiple sclerosis (MS) is a condition of the central nervous system
  • An autoimmune disease, the immune system mistakenly attacks the myelin sheath that protects the nerve fibres
  • Messages get disturbed and slow down or stop altogether
  • Symptoms usually start in your 20s or 30s – in fact, this is the most common disease of this type affecting younger adults
  • Common symptoms include: overwhelming fatigue, dizzy spells, muscle spasms, numbness, difficulty swallowing, bowel and bladder problems, visual problems and cognitive impairment
  • Generally symptoms worsen over time, although they will often fluctuate
  • MS stays with you for life
