What Is Multiple Sclerosis?

MS is an autoimmune condition wherein your immune system mistakes a part of your body for a foreign substance and attacks it. It attacks the myelin sheath in the brain and spinal cord which is the layer that surrounds your nerves, protecting them and helping electrical signals travel from the brain to the rest of the body.

Exactly why an individual gets Multiple Sclerosis or MS is yet unknown. As of this time, what is known is that it’s not brought about by anything that one does and it’s uncertain whether it may be averted.
