World MS Day 30th
Multiple sclerosis affects around 2.8 million people around the world. MS is a condition that causes damage to the myelin that insulates the nerves. This damage affects the way that the nerves can conduct impulses to the brain. This can therefore mean that the sufferer can have blurred vision, weak limbs, tingly feelings, memory problems and fatigue. Most people are diagnosed between the ages of 20 and 40. There is no cure for the disease, but there are treatments that can make symptoms more manageable or can modify the course of the disease. https://www.mssociety.org.uk
The theme for World MS Day this year is ‘connections’. This is all about building self-connections, community connections and healthcare connections. This aims to challenge social barriers, support people suffering from MS, promote self-care and help to connect people affected by MS to MS research. https://worldmsday.org
