Multiple Sclerosis (MS) is a chronic autoimmune disease that affects the neurological system: the brain, nerves, and spinal cord. Although the cause of this non-contagious disease is not fully understood, scientists know that it is characterized by damage to the myelin sheath, which is the covering of the nerve cells in the body. Common symptoms include loss of balance, muscle spasms, numbness or another abnormal sensation in any area, problems moving arms or legs, and bowel and bladder issues, but — depending on which nerves are damaged — symptoms can occur in many parts of the body. The disorder is chronic and currently has no cure, but standard life expectancy should not be impacted.
