Comprehensive Information, Resources, and Support on Multiple Sclerosis

Multiple sclerosis (MS) is a condition characterized by the destruction of the protective covering (myelin sheath) of neurons. The inflammation caused by the immune system damages myelin and the nerve fibers in the brain, spinal cord, optic nerve, and the specialized cells that make myelin within the central nervous system.

Relapsing-Remitting MS (RRMS) is the most common form of multiple sclerosis affecting about 85% of all people with MS. It is observed that women are at three time higher risk of being affected by RRMS than men.Some common signs of relapsing-remitting MS are trouble seeing, numbness, fatigue, difficulty, balancing problems, etc.
