A neurological disease that is thought to be triggered by environmental factors in individuals with genetic susceptibility. MS causes immune attacks on the axons and myelin in the CNS that cover nerve fibers, which causes permanent communication problems between your brain and the rest of your body.
MS can be divided into 5 different disease subtypes:
- Radiologically isolated syndromes
- Clinically isolated syndromes
- Relapsing-remitting MS
- Secondary progressive MS
- Primary progressive MS
