In this short video from the Multiple Sclerosis Society of New Zealand, multiple sclerosis patients talk about the disease and what it means to them.
The film explains that multiple sclerosis (MS) is a chronic autoimmune disease which attacks the central nervous system, and affects approximately one in 3,000 people in New Zealand. The patients in the video speak about some of the symptoms they suffer from and stress that most of these symptoms are not obvious to others just by looking at them. They comment on the fact that no two MS patients are the same: each one will have different symptoms, and the severity of their symptoms will also differ.
