About Multiple Sclerosis
Multiple sclerosis, an unpredictable, often disabling disease of the
central nervous system, interrupts the flow of information within the
brain, and between the brain and body. Symptoms range from numbness and
tingling to blindness and paralysis. The progress, severity and specific
symptoms of MS in any one person cannot yet be predicted, but advances
in research and treatment are moving us closer to a world free of MS.
Most people with MS are diagnosed between the ages of 20 and 50, with at
least two to three times more women than men being diagnosed with the
disease. MS affects more than 2.3 million people worldwide. For more
