March is also Multiple Sclerosis Education Month, so as we wrapped the month up, we gave you info about the disease.
MS is a disease of the central nervous system, which interferes with communication between the brain and the body, and anyone can get it.
MS affects approximately 2.3 million people worldwide, but the disease isn’t consistently tracked and reported in the U.S.
MS causes pain, extreme fatigue, and hurts vision, balance, walking. memory, concentration, and mood, and can cause problems as serious as paralysis.
There are medications shown to slow MS, but no cure. There isn’t even a one course of diagnosis, like a lab test.
This is a pivotal time in MS that shows how far research has come. Learn more about the disease’s history.
Make a donation, find an event, and advocate for change and make a difference in the fight against MS.
