Multiple Sclerosis - Introduction: Symptoms & Treatment Resources
Multiple sclerosis (MS) is a chronic, often disabling disease that affects the central nervous system. Symptoms of multiple sclerosis may be mild, such as numbness in the limbs, or severe such as paralysis or loss of vision. MS affects approximately 2.5 million people worldwide, including 350,000 Americans. The progress, severity and specific symptoms of MS in any one person can not yet be predicted. However, advances in research, diagnosis, and treatment of multiple sclerosis are giving hope to those affected by MS.
