Multiple Sclerosis (MS) is a chronic and often disabling neurological disease that affects the central nervous system, including the brain and spinal cord. It is characterized by a wide range of symptoms and can vary greatly in severity and progression from person to person.
The underlying cause of MS is believed to be an autoimmune response, where the body's immune system mistakenly targets and attacks the protective covering of nerve fibers called myelin. Myelin acts like insulation around electrical wires, allowing for efficient transmission of nerve impulses. When the myelin is damaged, nerve signals are disrupted, leading to a variety of neurological symptoms.
