What is multiple sclerosis?
Multiple sclerosis (MS) is a condition of the central nervous system, affecting around 100,000 people in the UK.
How can it affect someone?
MS is complex, and has many symptoms. Most people won’t experience them all, certainly not at the same time. Symptoms include:
- Physical symptoms – Physical symptoms commonly include vision problems, balance problems and dizziness, fatigue, bladder problems and stiffness and/or spasms.
- Memory, thinking and emotions – MS can affect memory and thinking, and also have an impact on emotions. Like all MS symptoms, you might experience this to varying degrees, or not at all.
