According to MS Ireland (The Multiple Sclerosis Society of Ireland) it is estimated that 2.5 million people worldwide are affected, with approximately 8000 in Ireland and 250 new MS diagnoses each year.
MS is an autoimmune disease that affects the brain and spinal cord. It’s caused by degeneration and scarring of the myelin sheath, a protective covering that surrounds nerve cells. When this cover is damaged the conduction of nerve impulses is impaired. The damage is caused by inflammation and occurs when the body’s own immune cells attack the nervous system.
MS can affect many parts of the body including the muscles causing problems walking and spasms, bowel and bladder dysfunction, blurred vision and uncontrollable eye movements, cognitive difficulties and speech problems. The symptoms of MS can vary depending on the location and severity of the attack. The main form of MS is ‘Relapsing-Remitting’ - characterized by a remission phase where few or no symptoms are present and by a relapse phase where the person is suffering from one or more attacks.
MS is an incurable condition. However, medicinal treatments are available to relieve symptoms and complementary therapies such as diet and exercise are put in place to improve overall quality of life.
