Multiple Sclerosis (MS) is a disease that damages the coating (called myelin) on the nerves in the brain or spinal cord.

Symptoms can come and go suddenly. They might be very hard to manage or not so hard. The common ones are feeling really tired, numbness or heaviness in arms or legs, blurry vision, and speech problems.

There is no cure for MS, but there are medicines and treatments that can make the symptoms better.
