Multiple Sclerosis – MS
According to National MS Society approximately 2.1 million people (twice as many woman than men) world wide are affected by this chronic disease of the nervous system. Symptoms vary from person to person but often include temporary or permanent blurred vision, extreme fatigue, numbness, tremors, slurred speech, poor coordination, loss of balance, memory issues, paralysis, blindness, and more. Often times these symptoms are difficult to interpret and a definitive diagnosis is usually not given until patients have had an MRI. Currently there are medications and treatments to help with the symptoms of MS, but there is no cure.
