Understanding Multiple Sclerosis The Battle Within

You’ve likely seen celebrities such as Christina Applegate, Selma Blair and Jamie Lynn Sigler talk publicly about their battles with multiple sclerosis, or MS. But do you know what this disease entails; or how common it is; or how disabling it can be? MS was among the first diseases to be described scientifically nearly 200 years ago. Although doctors back then didn’t understand what they saw and recorded, drawings from autopsies clearly show what we recognize as MS today.
