Learn about multiple sclerosis

Being told you have multiple sclerosis is a life-changing diagnosis. Symptoms may have been on/off for years, or perhaps they’ve appeared very suddenly; either way, a diagnosis of a lifelong neurological condition will come with some questions. Actually, lots of questions. MS affects people in different ways but for most people there are highly effective treatments available to help you manage your MS.

Our ‘Learn about MS’ guides will help you find the answers to many of those questions and support you in understanding what MS means for your life. Having MS doesn’t mean giving up on your ambitions, just rethinking how to achieve them.
