What is MS?
Multiple sclerosis, an unpredictable, often disabling disease of the central nervous system, interrupts the flow of information within the brain, and between the brain and body. Symptoms range from numbness and tingling to blindness and paralysis. The progression, severity and specific symptoms of MS in any one person cannot yet be predicted, but advances in research and treatment are moving us closer to a world free of MS.
The print edition is free to anyone with MS. Call your chapter to request it or use our chapter finder to locate your nearest chapter.
Momentum is also free to healthcare professionals who are on chapter referral lists. All others are invited to read it online.
