As per Modern Aspect:
Multiple sclerosis is a condition related to damage in the central nervous system that results in the varied and unpredictable symptoms of the disease. In most patients, this disease is characterized by episodes of reversible neurological deficits, which is often followed by progressive neurological deterioration over time. The central nervous system of our body is made up of the brain, and spinal cord. Within this system, the immune system causes inflammation that damages myelin — the fatty substance that surrounds and insulates the nerve fibers.
What are the Causes of Multiple Sclerosis?
The main cause of multiple sclerosis is usually unknown. It is considered as an autoimmune disease in which the body’s immune system starts attacking its own tissues. In this disease, the immune system malfunction destroys the fatty substance that protects the nerve fibers in the spinal cord and brain. When the protective myelin gets damaged and nerve fiber is exposed, the messages that travel along these nerves may be blocked.

Many viruses and bacteria — such as measles, human herpesvirus-6, Epstein Barr virus (EBV) and Chlamydia pneumonia, these are involved in the development of multiple sclerosis.
2. Genetic Factors
Multiple sclerosis is not an inherited disease means it is not a disease that is passed down from generation to another generation. However, there may be a genetic risk of Multiple sclerosis. The risk of developing MS is also increased when other first-degree relatives (parents, siblings, and children) have this disease, but far less than in identical twins.
3. Environmental Factors
There are several environmental factors that contribute to the risk of developing this disease. There is no single risk factor that provokes it but several factors are believed to contribute to the overall risk. Factors include low vitamin D levels in the blood, smoking, and obesity.
