What is multiple sclerosisMultiple sclerosis is an unpredictable disease that causes discomfort to the patient and ruins his neurological system. MS disrupts connection between brain areas. In this autoimmune disease immune cells attack the myelin sheath which is needed for neurons stimulation. Multiple sclerosis can become a debilitating disease because the messages are sent slowly with damaged myelin sheath. The work of central nervous system becomes less effective.

Almost 400,000 people from USA suffer from multiple sclerosis. The progression of disease is different in every case therefore it is called unpredictable.

Multiple sclerosis commonly is a disorder that affects the transmission of nerve impulses in the nerves. The disease is revealed at the age of 18-45 for the first time. It considerably affects the quality of life.

The symptoms include the following ones:

  • Numbness in the body, limbs
  • Paralysis
  • Loss of vision and etc.

But frequently patients with MS successfully pass through multiple sclerosis treatment and live normal life. When MS patients die it happens for the reasons that usually occur among common people too (because of heart disease, cancer and etc.).
