Symptoms in MS Please remember: "symptoms" are what doctors see, and we see and hear: they are much more than that for those whom this is an existential reality. Very dew people with MS have all of these; but some do.
This page is not so much for those who suffer from this condition, but moreso for those
who may have someone in their life who experiences it as their daily reality. Those who suffer from this, already know it. MS is currently classified as an autoimmune disease of the central nervous system (brain, spinal cord). The disease attacks myelin, the protective covering of the nerves, causing inflammation and often damaging the myelin. Myelin is necessary for the transmission of nerve impulses through nerve fibres. If damage to myelin is slight, nerve impulses travel with minor interruptions; however, if damage is substantial and if scar tissue replaces the myelin, nerve impulses may be completely disrupted, and the nerve fibres themselves can be damaged. The list below is what folks with MS Experience, Feel, Live and Suffer with, and Endure, daily. It's their "Normal" - their Reality. And oh yes, another important thing to remember is that, if you know someone who has MS, you know ONE person with MS. It does not manifest the same way in every person with MS.
