When To Call A Professional
Call your doctor immediately if you have symptoms of multiple sclerosis.
A minority of those with multiple sclerosis have a relatively harmless form of the illness, but the majority of patients suffer from some type of neurological disability. In general, multiple sclerosis is a progressive illness that can last 30 to 40 years, but the degree of progression and eventual disability varies from patient to patient. There is great hope that newer forms of treatment will have significant long-term effects in improving the lives of multiple sclerosis patients.
