Multiple sclerosis

Multiple sclerosis (MS) is a chronic condition affecting the central nervous system. It can alter or compromise many functions including movement, sight, and memory. No two people experience MS the same way.

It’s thought that MS is an auto-immune condition in which the myelin (a fatty protective sheath around the nerves) is attacked. Scars, also known as lesions, form on the nerves, interfering with the transmission of nerve messages between the brain and the spinal cord.

In recent decades medical science has made great strides in the search for causes and cures for MS. Today, effective treatments are available to manage symptoms and reduce the risk of relapses and progression of the condition. Many people live active, fulfilling lives with MS.

Doctors who specialise in diagnosing and treating MS are called neurologists. Your neurologist can help you manage your MS and optimise your quality of life.
