What is MS
Multiple sclerosis (MS) is different for everyone and you can get symptoms in many parts of your body.
MS is a neurological condition. That means it affects your nerves. It's caused when your immune system isn’t working properly.
Only a neurologist can diagnose MS. It's best to make an appointment with your GP about any symptom that worries you.
Around 100,000 people in the UK have MS.
You normally get diagnosed between the ages of 20 and 40.
