About MS

Multiple Sclerosis (MS) is a neurological condition that affects the central nervous system. There are several different types of MS such as Relapsing Remitting, Secondary Progressive and Primary Progressive which all vary in severity and symptoms. MS is an auto-immune disease which is where the immune system gets confused and attacks itself rather than the virus. Scientists still have no exact answers to what causes the condition, however some progress has been made in recent years to answer this medical dilemma. Symptoms of MS can vary significantly from person to person and can be very unpredictable, therefore difficult to manage. Main symptoms include severe aches and pains, fatigue, mobility problems as well as optic neuritis causing possible blindness. For more information about the condition visit – MS-UK (About MS)

MS life insurance

The Insurance Surgery is a leading specialist for individuals who have pre-existing medical conditions such as MS. Life insurance and other personal protection products can be difficult to obtain with MS. There are a number of providers who offer particularly good rates for people with MS and this tends to change regularly. It is therefore important that you speak to a specialist like The Insurance Surgery who understands the condition and the provider underwriting terms. Insurance providers will generally offer terms for people with MS and the rates can vary drastically from one provider to another.
