Multiple Sclerosis (MS)
Multiple Sclerosis is an auto immune condition and is the most common disabling neurological conditions affecting young adults. MS is the result of damage to myelin, a protective sheath surrounding nerve fibres of the central nervous system. When the myelin is damaged this interferes with messages between the brain and other parts of the body.
MS is characterised by periods of relapse and remission, while for others it has a progressive pattern. For everyone it makes life unpredictable and disabling.
