All about

MS or Multiple Sclerosis. The first time I heard about this disease was when a local actress was diagnosed with it. She was crying on that interview, fearing for her life and children. Being a single mother, she was worried on how it affects her children since they were still very young then. The good thing though was she learned about it when it was not too late. But what is MS really? It is a disease that affects the brain and spinal cord, our central nervous system. When It occurs, certain body movements are impaired or difficult to make. MS symptoms include unexplained fatigue, weakness on one's legs or arms, clumsiness, trouble focusing, depression, and slurred speech.

There is no known cure for MS, it's a life long disease. But it can be manage. There are websites that explains much about it. Treatments, advices, common questions, and even MS diet. Cause accordingly, the food patients eat plays a big role in their health. Do you know someone whose diagnosed with it?
