In this section you'll learn about what MS is and what research we're supporting and funding as part of our vision of a world free from MS.
Multiple sclerosis (MS) is a disease of the central nervous system – it may affect the brain, spinal cord and/or optic nerve. It is a very variable condition and the symptoms depend on which areas of the central nervous system have been affected. There is no set pattern to MS and everyone with MS has a different set of symptoms, which vary from time to time and can change in severity and duration, even in the same person.
Whether you or someone you know has been diagnosed with MS, please find below a number of questions you may be looking for answers to. If you have any further questions about MS or how we at MS Queensland can help, please contact our InfoLine Monday to Friday between 8:30am – 4:30pm on 1800 177 591.
