Multiple sclerosis

Overview of multiple sclerosis

Multiple sclerosis (MS) is a nervous system disorder. In people with MS, the immune system starts attacking the protective coating (myelin sheath) of nerve fibers in the spinal cord and brain. When this happens, the nerves cannot communicate effectively—or at all. Doctors are not able to reverse damage to the nervous system once it occurs.
