Multiple sclerosis is a chronic disease that affects the central nervous system, in particular the brain and spinal cord. Scientists are still debating whether MS should be considered an autoimmune disease or not, as it does involve an attack of the immune system on the central nervous system. MS disrupts communication between the body and thebrain, which destroys the nerves and can cause irreparable damage. There are four types of MS: relapsing-remitting, secondary-progressive, primary-progressive, and progressive-relapsing.
