Multiple sclerosis (MS) is a degenerative disease that affects the central nervous system (CNS). The immune system works against the (CNS) by attacking the myelin, the substance that protects and insulates the nerve fibers. Damaged myelin forms scar tissue limiting nerve impulses traveling to and from the spinal cord and brain.
MS affects approximately 1 out of 1,000 people. Women are affected more commonly than men. The disorder most commonly begins between 20 to 40 years old but can happen at any age. The progress, severity, and symptoms of MS in any individual cannot yet be predicted.
