This neurological condition which affects around 100,000 people in the UK, with most people being diagnosed between the ages of 20-40, although it can affect younger and older people too. Some 5,000 people are newly diagnosed each year. Roughly three times as many women have MS as do men.

Memory, thinking and emotions may also be affected. The last few years have witnessed a revolution in our understanding of the causes of MS and an unprecedented appreciation of the prognosis. And while MS remains incurable, new treatments have transformed the prospects for people with this debilitating disease - some drugs may even slow the physical decline and healthcare professionals\' ability to alleviate symptoms has improved dramatically.
