Information Regarding Multiple Sclerosis (MS)

The National Multiple Sclerosis Society, Rio Grande Office serves all New Mexicans living with Multiple Sclerosis (MS) and their families. Multiple Sclerosis is a chronic, often disabling disease that attacks the central nervous system (CNS), which is made up of the brain, spinal cord, and optic nerves. Symptoms may be mild, such as numbness in the limbs, or severe, such as paralysis or loss of vision. The progress, severity, and specific symptoms of MS are unpredictable and vary from one person to another.

Approximately 2500 New Mexicans have MS, based on local National MS Society membership, which is voluntary. Since MS is not tracked by CDC, the exact number is unknown. The number likely is higher than 2500.

Information about MS can be found at the Rio Grande website or by contacting the local office (see below).
