Multiple sclerosis (MS) is a neurological condition that affects the central nervous system, specifically the brain and spinal cord. It occurs when the immune system mistakenly attacks the protective sheath (myelin) that covers nerve fibres, causing communication problems between the brain and the rest of the body.

Symptoms of MS can vary widely and may include fatigue, difficulty walking, numbness or tingling, muscle weakness, vision problems and problems with balance and coordination.

MS is diagnosed through a combination of neurological exams, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scans and sometimes lumbar punctures (spinal taps) to analyse cerebrospinal fluid.
