What Is Multiple Sclerosis

Multiple sclerosis is a chronic and often debilitating disease which attacks the central nervous system (the brain, spinal cord and optic nerves). There is currently no cure. It is the most common neurological disease in young adults and often attacks people at the time of their lives when they are planning families and building a career.

The average age of diagnosis is between 20 and 40 years of age, although symptoms may begin much earlier, and three out of four people living with multiple sclerosis are women.

No two cases of multiple sclerosis are identical and the severity and progression of the condition cannot be predicted.

Multiple sclerosis attacks the central nervous system (the brain, spinal cord and optic nerves).

Symptoms of multiple sclerosis include extreme fatigue, blurred vision and balance issues.

Multiple sclerosis is a lifelong disease for which there is no known cure...yet.

1 in 3 Australians will be directly impacted through a diagnosed family member, friend or colleague.
