Living with MS

Many of the symptoms of multiple sclerosis go unnoticed by everyone except the person living with them and therefore are easily dismissed or ignored by the community at large.

No two cases of multiple sclerosis are identical. The visible and hidden symptoms of the disease are unpredictable and vary from person to person and from time to time in the same person. One day they can alter your memory, the next your vision or your balance. Striking without warning and leaving no trace.

Symptoms vary from person to person, but can include:

  • Extreme fatigue
  • Pain and numbness
  • Pins and needles
  • Cognitive difficulties
  • Sensitivity to heat and/or cold
  • Difficulties with walking, balance or coordination
  • Dizziness and vertigo
  • Continence problems
  • Blurred vision
  • Tremors
  • In severe cases, paralysis
