Facts & Figures - Multiple Sclerosis
Multiple sclerosis is an autoimmune disease in which the nervous system degenerates. Inflammation causes myelin, the substance which insulates the nerves as well as helps conduct nerve impulses, to disappear. The afflicted individual experiences progressive interference in their nervous system function. Speech, walking, writing, and other activities may be affected.
The first symptoms of the disease may be visual, including blurred vision and colour de-saturation. Limb weakness may also be another early sign, as well as muscle spasms, numbness, and speech impediments. Many individuals experience mental symptoms such as memory loss, decreased concentration, and the inability to perform tasks in succession. Some individuals experience a pattern of remission and relapse of symptoms. Others experience a continuous worsening of symptoms from the onset of the disease.
Fact: Experts estimate 55,000 to 75,000 Canadians living with MS.
Fact: About 70% of individuals with multiple sclerosis experience partial or total remission of symptoms early in the disease.
