Multiple sclerosis (MS) is a neurological condition, that means it affects your nerves.
Once diagnosed, MS stays with you for life, but treatments and specialists can help you to manage the condition and its symptoms.
More than 100,000 people in the UK have MS. People are most likely to be diagnosed with MS in their 40s and 50s. But many people notice their first symptoms years before they get their diagnosis. MS affects almost three times as many women as men.
We don't know the cause and haven't yet found a cure, but research is progressing fast and all the support received brings MS Society closer to their goal.
