Multiple sclerosis

It affects more than 400,000 people in North America, approximately 500,000 people in Europe, and 2.5 million people worldwide. Its frequency differs in various regions of the world, being more common in economically developed areas.  Multiple Sclerosis has a higher frequency in temperate zones and is less common among people who live in warm climates. Many studies support the existence of a gradient in the frequency of Multiple Sclerosis that increases with distance from the equator, both in the northern and southern hemisphere.

Multiple Sclerosis is most common among people between 20 and 50 years old, however a person of any age can also develop this chronic autoimmune disorder that affects the central nervous system. Although it may result in limited mobility, the National Multiple Sclerosis Society reports that almost everyone with this disease lives a normal life.

Facing Multiple Sclerosis.

Because fatigue is one of the most common symptoms in this disease, daily activities may be more difficult. Other symptoms may be walking, small movements, problems with memory, weakness in the arms and legs, depression. Any or all of them can make any routine job such as making appointments, running errands, visiting friends, shopping, cleaning, grooming, and food preparation difficult.
