March is Multiple Sclerosis (MS) Awareness Month, and it is a time to raise awareness about this chronic neurological disorder. According to the National Multiple Sclerosis Society, MS is a central nervous system disease that causes a variety of physical and psychological symptoms.
According to the National Multiple Sclerosis Society, more than one million people in the United States have MS. This figure is expected to rise, with an estimated 200 new cases diagnosed each week. MS is estimated to affect more than 2.3 million people worldwide.
MS can be difficult to diagnose because its symptoms can be confused with those of other medical conditions. People with MS often feel tired, have trouble seeing, have weak muscles, and feel numb or tingly in their limbs. Other symptoms can include trouble with balance and coordination, problems with the bladder or bowels, and changes in how you think.
The life expectancy of people with MS has increased significantly as treatments have advanced. However, there is no cure for the disease. The focus of research continues to be on finding treatments that can slow the progression of the disease while also improving the quality of life for those living with MS.
March is an excellent time to show your support for someone who has MS. It can make a big difference in someone’s life to show them that you care about them and are there for them. You can also raise funds for MS research or volunteer at local MS events.
