Multiple Sclerosis

Multiple sclerosis (MS) is a chronic inflammatory disease of the central nervous system (optic nerves, brain and spinal cord). It causes damage to the axons (nerve fibers) and myelin (fatty substance insulating the axons), which can result in vision loss, weakness, numbness, cognitive changes, fatigue, pain, depression, and difficulty walking.
