Multiple Sclerosis (MS) is an autoimmune disease which masks itself as other diseases. More women than men are generally diagnosed with MS. MS is chronic and attacks the central nervous system. It is unknown as to what causes MS. Medical experts theorize it may be a virus, environmental, hereditary or a combination of these factors.
According to the National Multiple Sclerosis Society (NMSS) more than 2.1 million people in the world have MS. The NMSS states, ʺapproximately 400,000 Americans have MS, and every hour someone is newly diagnosed.ʺ
