I want to thank everyone who helped fund my standing frame. I live alone and can't stand or walk. Just being able to stand up with no help is amazing. And it means I can do exercise to help relieve my muscle pain. Katy has progressive  MS and lives in Bristol

What is MS?

Multiple sclerosis (MS) is a condition that affects your brain and spinal cord. In MS, the coating that protects your nerves (myelin) is damaged, causing a range of symptoms.

Some people won't have visible symptoms, but could be feeling fatigue (a kind of exhaustion out of all proportion to what they're doing), have slowed thinking or problems with their eyesight. Other people might use a wheelchair or need help with things like eating or dressing.

Once diagnosed, MS stays with you for life, but treatments and specialist help can help you manage its symptoms.
