In India- Patients with multiple sclerosis to form human chain on May 27

May 23, 2009

MUMBAI: Diagnosed with a debilitating neurological disorder at the prime of his career, ad firm executive Nadeem Naqvi admits he was

near-suicidal a decade ago. On Friday, however, Naqvi offered the message of
hope as he joined fellow patients, actor-cum-model Milind Soman and eminent neurologists in spreading the word on a little-known condition called multiple sclerosis (MS).

The Multiple Sclerosis Society of India (MSSI), a support group, will organise a human chain at Masina Hospital on May 27 to spread the message of hope to those suffering.

MS is a chronic progressive incurable disease of the central nervous system. Naqvi said he was an active professional till he developed numbness on the left side of his body and was confined to bed for six months. "It was with the support of my family and friends that I was back on my feet,'' he said. Dadar resident Cawsi Randevia (54), too, said he would participate in the chain to encourage other patients that they could lead normal lives.

Neurologist Noshir Wadia said the condition generally affected youngsters and encouraged people to pay attention to symptoms like blurring of vision, weakness in limbs, fatigue and unsteadiness.
