Multiple sclerosis is a disease that causes vision problems, numbness and tingling, muscle weakness, and other problems. When the body's infection-fighting system, called the "immune system," attacks the body's own cells, it is called an "autoimmune response", which consequently results in autoimmune diseases. Multiple Sclerosis is one of them. It occurs when the body's immune system attacks and damages nerve cells and their connections in the brain and spinal cord, causing a communication problem between the brain and rest of the body.
