MS Awareness Month
Multiple Sclerosis Awareness Month aims to raise awareness about this condition.
MS, a disease of the central nervous system, affects the function of nerve cells in the brain, and is usually diagnosed between the ages of 20 and 50. It has an unpredictable course. MS episodes affecting almost any bodily function can occur in a seemingly random manner.
The most common symptoms are fatigue, numbness in the arms, legs or face, complete or partial vision loss, weakness, unsteadiness when walking, balance problems, and involuntary muscle spasms.
