Multiple Sclerosis

Multiple sclerosis (MS) is an inflammatory, demyelinating disorder of the central nervous system (CNS). MS is an autoimmune disease, meaning that the body's immune system is damage by genetic or environmental factors (or both), causing it to attack its own tissues. In the case of MS, these tissues are the myelin covering the nerve fibers in the brain.
During an MS attack, inflammation occurs in areas of the white matter of the central nervous system in random patches called plaques. This process is followed by destruction of myelin, the fatty covering that insulates nerve cell fibers in the brain and spinal cord. Myelin facilitates the smooth, high-speed transmission of electrochemical messages between the brain, the spinal cord, and the rest of the body; when it is damaged, neurological transmission of messages may be slowed or blocked completely, leading to diminished or lost function.
There are two main types of MS. The relapsing-remitting type is characterized by periods of worsening symptoms followed by periods of remission. The chronic progressive type is characterized by a steadily progressive course with few or no periods of symptom remission.
Treatment modalities include medications, therapy, and sometimes, surgery for specific problems.
