MS Hope for a Cure feels strongly that the National MS Society is the single best place to find information regarding Multiple Sclerosis. When first being diagnosed, it can be extremely difficult and scary to sort through all the information on the internet. We recommend that you speak to your doctor if you are concerned that you may have MS and use the National MS Society’s website www.nationalmssociety.org to learn more about the disease, treatments, and resources currently available.
From the National MS Society’s Website:
What is Multiple Sclerosis?
Multiple sclerosis (or MS) is a chronic, often disabling disease that attacks the central nervous system (CNS), which is made up of the brain, spinal cord, and optic nerves. Symptoms may be mild, such as numbness in the limbs, or severe, such as paralysis or loss of vision. The progress, severity, and specific symptoms of MS are unpredictable and vary from one person to another. Today, new treatments and advances in research are giving new hope to people affected by the disease.
