TM is a rare disorder, involving an inflammatory attack in the central nervous system. This can happen anywhere along the spinal cord, causing a ‘lesion’ usually visible on an MRI scan.
Attacks are normally one-off episodes, but sometimes recur in different places along the spinal cord. Many people, even if severely affected initially, will make a good recovery within a few months following an attack. But most people are permanently affected to some degree.
The TM Society is a national charity completely dependent on donations.
The TMS exists to assist members through the provision of information, personal support and financial assistance. These services are delivered in a number of ways, including:
- This website (www.myelitis.org.uk)
- The TMS magazine (issued quarterly)
- Regional Support Groups
- Conferences and other events
- Telephone call and email support
- Neuro-physiotherapy Bursary
- Equipment Grant Scheme
