MS Research charity is raising £1 million to fund research particularly in to resolving some of the problems of symptoms currently difficult to treat like fatigue, incontinence, deteriorating mobility and intention tremor. The research on tremor will develop a means of suppressing unwanted movements and restore useful function. The results will make significant progress to improve treatment and the quality of life for people with Multiple Sclerosis (MS).
Why 365? Because multiple sclerosis (MS) is a condition that doesn't give those with the disease a day off. MS affects young adults and sometimes children, once diagnosed it will affect the rest of a person's life. This means an adult life-time of daily battle against symptoms like muscle weakness and painful spasms often with loss of mobility, fatigue, tremor, bladder and bowel problems, sensory problems, difficulty walking and visual impairment. In the UK MS affects 100,000 persons.
