ALS (amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, Lou Gehrig’s disease) and MS (multiple sclerosis) are not the same disease. They sometimes are confused because they have some similarities. However, they have more differences than similarities.MS is neurodegenerative disease that results in the destruction the protective coating (myelin sheath) on nerves of the CNS (central nervous system), which causes a faulty relay of instructions from the brain to the body. Many people may have mild symptoms for years with periods of remission. In contrast, ALS destroys the nerve cells (neurons) so that the body cannot communicate with the brain. Symptoms of ALS progress continually, and result in paralysis, and death a few years after the initial diagnosis.
The similarities between these two conditions are that both MS and ALS are so-called neurodegenerative diseases that affect the brain and spinal cord (central nervous system or CNS). Both affect the body's muscles and nerves.ALS and MS have no known cure...
