MSP Backs National Multiple Sclerosis Week

Banffshire & Buchan Coast MSP Stewart Stevenson is highlighting the importance of Multiple Sclerosis (MS) Week, which takes place from 30th April to 6th May.

Commenting, Mr Stevenson said:

“MS is of particular significance to Scotland as it has the highest prevalence anywhere in the world and symptoms of MS can be complex such as; fatigue, vision problems and difficulties with walking. However, we must remember that MS is different for everyone and that most people won't experience them all, certainly not at the same time.

“In terms of treatment, there are lots of options for treating and managing MS. They include drug treatments, exercise and physiotherapy, diet and alternative therapies.

“I hope that people will use this week to think and talk about this shattering condition and how it affects people’s lives.

“For those wishing more information please visit: or call the free MS Helpline on 0808 800 8000.”
