The central nervous system – including the brain and spinal cord – is the communications system of your body. It sends signals that tell the body what to do and how to respond to information.
MS causes the body’s immune system to attack itself, which damages these connective signals.
Everyone experiences MS differently
There are over 25,600 people living with MS in Australia and it is the most common neurological condition in young adults. While it’s one of the most common conditions of the central nervous system, everyone’s experience of MS is unique.
