Why Multiple Sclerosis?

Multiple Sclerosis is an important cause for Social Hiking. The concept and first version of Social Hiking was created to share a hike of Offa’s Dyke to raise money for MS Society after a close family member of the creator Phil (@DaylightGambler) was diagnosed with MS. Subsequently, after symptoms started immediately after the walk, he was diagnosed with the condition.

What is Multiple Sclerosis?

MS is an autoimmune disorder which affects the central nervous system, caused by the immune system attacking the protective sheath surrounding nerve fibres. MS is unpredictable, and symptoms vary from person to person, but can include problems with balance, fatigue, numbness, visual problems and muscle stiffness or spasms, and in some cases can lead to severe and permanent disability. MS can be a difficult lengthy process to diagnose, but it is the most common disabling neurological condition affecting young adults – around 100,000 people in the UK have the condition. It is complex and unpredictable – there is no cure, and treatments that are available are effective in only certain cases for some of the time.
