My explanation Multiple Sclerosis
MS is a disease of the central nervous system. The nerves are covered in a protective layer of fatty protein called the myelin sheath a bit like the insulation on an electrical cable.
MS is an auto-immune disease, where the immune system gets confused and instead of attacking an infection or virus, the immune system turns on itself and attacks the nerve cells, damaging this protective sheath.
So if you think of me as an old house with lots of electrical wires that are slightly damaged or cut completely(Jokingly i tend to say that Ive got a rodent infestation thats eating away the wires.) So sometimes when you switch on a light it might not work as the electricity signal doesn’t get through.
Now Think of my feet and legs like the light
