MS - Our Story

What is multiple sclerosis?

No two cases of multiple sclerosis are identical and the severity and progression of the condition cannot be predicted. Symptoms vary from person to person, but can include:

  • Fatigue
  • Pain and numbness
  • Pins and needles
  • Cognitive difficulties
  • Intolerance to heat
  • Loss of balance and coordination
  • Continence problems
  • Blurred vision
  • Tremors
  • In severe cases, paralysis

Can Multiple Sclerosis Be Cured?

Multiple sclerosis is a lifelong disease for which a cause and cure are yet to be found. However, doctors and scientists are making discoveries about the treatment and management of multiple sclerosis every day.

While the search for a cure continues, MS helps people living with multiple sclerosis to access the services, support, treatment, and information they need to live full and happy lives.

You can find out more about multiple sclerosis at the MS website.
