Multiple sclerosis (MS) is a disease of the central nervous system.
Symptoms vary, because the location
and severity of each attack can be different. Episodes can last for
days, weeks, or months. These episodes alternate with periods of reduced
or no symptoms (remissions).
Fever, hot baths, sun exposure, and stress can trigger or worsen attacks.
It is common for the disease to return (relapse). However, the disease may continue to get worse without periods of remission.
Because nerves in any part of the brain or spinal cord may be damaged, patients with multiple sclerosis can have symptoms in many parts of the body.
