Remitting Multiple Sclerosis

In multiple sclerosis (MS), damage occurs to the central nervous system, which includes the brain and spinal cord. MS causes the myelin to invade the immune system, which is the barrier that protects the nerves. This can hurt the nerves themselves, too. When myelin or nerves get hurt, nerves cannot pass their signals through properly. The harmful process produces scar tissue called sclerosis, which brings multiple sclerosis to the disease name. Different forms of MS differently impact people. One type is called relapsing-remitting MS. You have the disease flare-ups, or relapses with this type. You have recovery periods, or remissions, between those flare-ups.
