Multiple Sclerosis Info

Multiple sclerosis (MS) is a disease affecting the transmission of nerve impulses in the central nervous system. It typically starts between the ages of 20 and 40, and is five times more common in temperate climates -- such as those found in the northern United States, Canada, and Europe -- than in tropical regions.
 
Symptoms of this condition vary greatly in severity. As communication between the brain and other parts of the body is disrupted, symptoms can range from being relatively benign to somewhat disabling to devastating. In severe cases, a person may lose the ability to speak, walk, or write.
