Multiple Sclerosis or MS is the most common disabling neurological condition affecting young adults.

Around 100,000 people in the UK
have MS.

MS is the result of damage to myelin, a protective sheath surrounding nerve fibres of the central nervous system. For an unknown reason the body decides to attack it. This interferes with messages between the brain and other parts of the body.

In the UK one person in every 700 has MS. It affects more women than men - at a ratio of 2 to 1. MS is usually diagnosed between the ages of 20-45.

MS can affect everything about you: eyesight, walking, thinking, talking, continence, everything...

For some, MS is characterised by periods of relapse and remission while for others it has a progressive pattern. Most have crippling fatigue. For everyone, it makes life unstable and unpredictable.
