About Multiple Sclerosis
Multiple sclerosis (MS) interrupts the flow of information between the brain and body and it stops people from moving. Every hour in the United States, someone is newly diagnosed with MS, an unpredictable, often disabling disease of the central nervous system. Symptoms range from numbness and tingling to blindness and paralysis. The progress, severity and specific symptoms of MS in any one person cannot yet be predicted, but advances in research and treatment are moving us closer to a world free of MS. Most people with MS are diagnosed between the ages of 20 and 50, with more than three times as many women as men being diagnosed with the disease. MS affects more than 400,000 in the U.S. and 2.4 million worldwide.
