Multiple Sclerosis (MS) is an unpredictable disease of the central nervous system that interrupts the communication within the brain and between the brain and body. The cause of MS is still unknown. Scientists believe there is a combination of environmental and genetic factors that contribute to developing MS. The progress, severity, and specific symptoms of MS in any one person cannot yet be predicted. Most people with MS are diagnosed between the ages of 20 and 50, with at least two to three times more women than men being diagnosed with the disease.
