  • 15 per cent have a progressive disease that steadily worsens

Multiple Sclerosis Symptoms

MS has a wide range of symptoms, is unpredictable, and affects everyone differently. Symptoms vary depending on the type of MS – but typically wax and wane. The condition can affect any part of the body but usually starts with a single episode of nerve dysfunction, classically inflammation of the optic nerve in one eye. Other common symptoms include:

  • Double or blurred vision
  • Numbness or tingling in any part of the body
  • Tiredness
  • Temporary blindness
  • Fatigue and dizziness
  • Distortion or loss of sense of touch
  • Limb weakness, spasticity and pain
  • Incontinence
  • Constipation
  • Cognitive impairment
