Multiple sclerosis (MS) is a chronic, often disabling disease of the central nervous system. It is thought to be an autoimmune disease, where the immune system mistakenly attacks normal tissues in the body.
A helpful plan for coping with the unpredictability and uncertainty of MS is to become educated on the possible symptoms and work with healthcare professionals such as physicians, physical therapists, occupational therapists and psychologists to manage them.
Since there is no cure for MS, the treatments prescribed by physicians and other healthcare professionals are not designed to make MS disappear. Instead, they are designed to help you manage the symptoms, prevent unnecessary complications, control disease progression and minimize disability.
