This is a tribute to a constant struggle for well being of people with Multiple Sclerosis (MS).
Multiple Sclerosis (MS) involves an immune-mediated process in which an abnormal response of the body’s immune system is directed against the central nervous system (CNS).
Within the CNS, the immune system attacks myelin — the fatty substance that surrounds and insulates the nerve fibers — as well as the nerve fibers themselves.
When any part of the myelin sheath or nerve fiber is damaged or destroyed, nerve impulses traveling to and from the brain and spinal cord are distorted or interrupted, producing a wide variety of symptoms.
The damaged myelin forms scar tissue (sclerosis), which gives the disease its name.
People with MS typically experience one of four disease courses, which can be mild, moderate or severe.
