Canada has the highest rate of multiple sclerosis (MS) in the world, with an estimated 100,000 Canadians living with the disease. It is most often diagnosed in young adults aged 15 to 40, however it is possible for younger children and older adults to be diagnosed with the disease.
MS is currently classified as an autoimmune disease of the central nervous system (brain, spinal cord). Multiple sclerosis (MS) is a chronic disease where an individual experiences damage to nerve cells in the brain and the spinal cord. This is typically a progressive disease and over time is will gradually worsen. Those who suffer from multiple sclerosis will usually have an impairment of speech or impairment of muscular coordination. Some individuals will experience severe fatigue and even experience numbness in their legs or lower back.
Those who suffer from multiple sclerosis will often experience trouble walking, dressing, standing for long periods of time or they will be confined to a wheelchair if the severity of the disease is extreme.
