    Multiple sclerosis (MS) is a neurological disorder that affects the brain and the spinal cord. Multiple sclerosis is very prominent, with between 2 and 2.5 million people affected globally, yet many people are still unaware of the severity of this disease.
    This disease appears to affect more men than women with the ratio being 3:1. Multiple sclerosis is a progressive disease, which means it worsens over time. The myelin sheath that surrounds nerves and conducts nerve impulses is damaged in individuals with MS. This interrupts nerve signals and can cause problems with vision, balance, and muscle communication. Fatigue is a very common part of multiple sclerosis as it affects 87 percent of those with this diagnosis.
