Understand The Signs Of Multiple Sclerosis

Multiple sclerosis, better known as MS, affects more than 1 million adults in the United States. It is an autoimmune disease that’s caused when the body attacks its own tissues. More specifically, the immune system attacks and wears down myelin in the nerves. Myelin is a protective coating that protects your nerve fibers from damage. If this is damaged or worn away, then your nerves will have trouble sending signals from your brain to your body and vice-versa.
