Since March 2003, Multiple Sclerosis Education and Awareness Month has been helping bring attention to this debilitating disease. Affecting about one million Americans, Multiple Sclerosis interferes with the normal function of the central nervous system, preventing the healthy communication between its parts.
Multiple Sclerosis Prognosis
A physician may diagnose MS in some patients soon after the onset of the illness. In others, however, doctors may not be able to readily identify the cause of the symptoms, leading to years of uncertainty and multiple diagnoses punctuated by baffling symptoms that mysteriously wax and wane. The vast majority of patients are mildly affected, but in the worst cases, MS can render a person unable to write, speak, or walk. MS is a disease with a natural tendency to remit spontaneously, for which there is no universally effective treatment.
