Multiple sclerosis (MS) is a neurodegenerative disease that affects the brain and spinal cord, ie, the central nervous system. The disease affects more women than men and is of unknown cause, although there are several indications related to autoimmune mechanisms damaged. In severe cases, the disease eventually leads to reduced mobility or full disability. The symptoms are varied, may last longer and can affect any part of the body. The most common are fatigue, balance and movement problems, constipation and urinary incontinence, loss of vision, facial pain, slurred speech, and other neurological and sexual difficulties. A cure for multiple sclerosis is still unknown, but there are various treatments to prevent progression of symptoms and maintain quality of life of patients.
