What is MS?
The great pretender. MS is a complex autoimmune disorder in which our own white blood cells attack our brain cells.
What are some of the symptoms?
Symptoms may include numbness, tingling, weakness usually on one side of the body that may build over weeks and resolve over weeks to months.
Diagnosis is made based on the patient’s history as well as analysis of cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) and/or documented changes over space and time on a magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) diagnostic study.
What can I do?
- MS is not curable but is treatable
- Current medications can reduce the risk of future disability by up to 80%
