    My father died of MS. It's a physical illness in which the sheath of myelin that covers nerves is gradually destroyed by an auto-immune response of unknown cause. The result is that the brain cannot communicate reliably with the muscles.

    It's usually likened to electrical wire having its insulation dissolve.
