Multiple sclerosis is a devastating illness that might affect anyone, regardless of their gender, race or age. Multiple sclerosis is a disease wherein the body's immune system deteriorates and after that begins to harm the nervous system.

The symptoms and signs of multiple sclerosis can differ, based on what kind of nerve fibres and where within the body it starts to affect first.

Numbness is an extremely common symptom of multiple sclerosis and at times an individual might experience numbness in the fingers, toes, hands or on the side of the face. Numbness may not remain; however, it may come and go in people who are in the first stages of the disease.
