Understanding multiple sclerosis and what it does to the body

Multiple sclerosis (MS) is a disease of the central nervous system estimated to affect 2.3 million people worldwide. It is a chronic disease in which the immune system abnormally attacks the insulation and support around the nerve cells (myelin sheath) in the brain, spinal cord and optic nerves, causing inflammation and consequent damage. MS is a leading cause of non-traumatic disability in young people, usually striking between 20 and 40 years of age. There is no cure for MS, but research continues to better understand and treat the disease.

  1. I am doing a research paper and presentation about MS. Your video is awesome! Great presentation! Very fun and easy to understand! Love love it! Thank you for sharing!!! ^_^

  2. But what is causing it the damage , it’s not your own body that Is causing that is a big medical lie and you know it and doctors know it , straight insurance fraud , the medical field is making billions off of this . Stop lying or I will report your video !

  3. Hello! I am an IB student and I am working on a project that is due on the 8th of this month. I was wondering if I could use your video on a web page that I'm working on? If not, that's alright as well 🙂

  4. I have everything every symptom. Doc said fibromyalgia. Took years alone in pain. An cuz I look fine I get ignored. Help. I was not like this in my younger days strong. Now weak that is hard to deal with. Every day I try but it's getting worse over the years

  5. It’s still unbelievable to me that I was diagnosed with MS in grade 5 (11yrs old). Have a crazy story that I will probably make a book on one day.
