I care for someone with multiple sclerosis (MS)
Our brain and spinal cord control what our body does, like walking, and we call this the nervous system. Multiple sclerosis is a condition that affects this. People with multiple sclerosis can become very tired, and have difficulty walking and standing. Sometimes it can stop them seeing properly, or remembering things. Most people are diagnosed between the ages of 20-40, but it can affect younger and older people too.
The Multiple Sclerosis Society provides more information for carers and families.
