What is behind it?
Multiple sclerosis (MS) is a disease of an unknown cause that presents itself as chronic progressive inflammation of the central nervous system. The disease affects both the brain and spinal cord resulting in inflammation that destroys nerve cells. Numerous neurological symptoms that include vision problems, memory lapses and movement difficulties are among its most common symptoms. Although MS is still without cure, the course of the disease can be somewhat influenced by current therapies which help slow down its progression.
