Multiple Sclerosis And Other Demyelinating Disease

What is Demyelinating Disease?

A demyelinating disease is any condition that results in damage to the protective covering (myelin sheath) that surrounds nerve fibers in your brain, optic nerves and spinal cord. When the myelin sheath is damaged, nerve impulses slow or even stop, causing neurological problems.

Multiple Sclerosis is common demyelinating disease. Other disorders include optic neuritis, NMO spectrum disorder and acute disseminated encephalomyelitis.

What is Multiple Sclerosis (MS)?

Multiple sclerosis (MS) is a chronic illness involving your central nervous system (CNS). The immune system attacks myelin, which is the protective layer around nerve fibers.

This causes inflammation and scar tissue, or lesions. This can make it hard for your brain to send signals to the rest of your body.
