A slow nemesisThe course of Multiple Sclerosis is difficult to predict, and the disease may at times either lie dormant, be marked by attacks or progress steadily.

Multiple Sclerosis (MS) is a chronic nerve disorder caused by destruction of the insulating layer surrounding neurons in the brain and spinal cord. Multiple sclerosis (abbreviated MS) is an autoimmune condition in which the immune system attacks the brain, leading to demyelination that affects the central nervous system (CNS).

When does this happen?

Demyelination occurs when the insulating layer surrounding neurons in the brain and spinal cord are destroyed.
