- Multiple Sclerosis (MS) is a disease of the central nervous system which damages the protective coating (Myelin sheath) around the nerves which transmit messages to all parts of the body, especially connected with the control of muscular and sensory activity
- When myelin is damaged, scar-like tissue forms. This hardened tissue makes it difficult for the nerves to send signals and messages to & from organs, muscles and the skin
What is MS?
Types of MS
Secondary Progressive MS:
Secondary progressive MS, as the name suggests, sees a progressive increase in people’s symptoms between relapse and remission, but this progression can be very slow. Changes might be so slight that they are hard to notice for a long time.
Primary Progressive MS:
This type of MS is characterised by a gradual progression of the disease from its onset with no remissions at all.
