Multiple sclerosis is a genetic disease that causes the body to attack its own nervous system. This leads to a variety of mild to severe symptoms ranging from numbness to loss of sight, or even to complete paralysis. Advancements in treatment have enabled most people suffering from MS to live a normal life.
