Today is World MS Day. Multiple sclerosis (MS) is an autoimmune disease that attacks the myelin sheath of the brain and spinal cord. The symptoms can vary wildly from patient to patient but can include dizziness, fatigue, vision loss, pain, coordination impairment, cognitive impairment, spasms, and a lot more.
Canada has the highest rate of MS in the world! Remember to be kind, because you never know what someone is dealing with. For 1 in 340 Canadians, that’s MS. This is another condition with no cure, and a clear need for consistent, effective treatments.
