According to the Mayo Clinic, multiple sclerosis is a potentially disabling disease of the central nervous system or brain and spinal cord.
In MS the immune system attacks the protective sheath that covers nerve fibers called myelin. This causes communication problems between your brain and the rest of your body that ultimately cause permanent damage. Different patients have different symptoms when it comes to MS.

Although not curable, different treatments are available to help with symptoms. It is not known why MS develops; however, it is considered an autoimmune disease.
