Multiple sclerosis affects people in different ways, especially when it comes to symptoms. Many different symptoms can be linked to MS, but you are very unlikely to experience them all. Because of this, MS can be tricky to diagnose. Some symptoms you may not even recognise as unusual, especially if they’ve come and gone over weeks, months or possibly years. Keep track of what you’re experiencing, even if you’re not sure it’s related to MS.
Fatigue, vision problems and mobility issues are some of the most common symptoms of multiple sclerosis. The good news is that there’s a range of highly effective treatments available to help you manage your MS symptoms.
