Multiple Sclerosis

lightshipclin

The exact cause of MS is still unclear, but it’s a long-lasting disease that occurs when the immune system attacks a fatty material in the body, causing issues with the central nervous system. People with MS will often start experiencing symptoms between the ages 20 and 40, and it is more common in women. No two people experience MS the same way, since there is a wide range of symptoms and fluctuation in severity. These symptoms can include fatigue, muscle weakness, numbness, vision or cognitive issues, and chronic pain. While there is currently no cure, those who struggle look for treatment options to help prevent relapses and slow the disease’s effect.
