I do not have MS, but for the past 20 years in my practice, I see 5 year olds to 75 year olds with various types and stages of MS.  One thing this that is clearly striking is the disparity of the function between those diagnosed prior to DMAs and those diagnosed after they were introduced around 2000.  But still, everyone is different as the snap-shot article of 6 individuals with MS demonstrated.

The unpredictability of MS and the lack of awareness about the disease can make it difficult for some to choose to disclose their MS diagnosis. Read more from the Washington Post and MSAA at washingtonpost.com
Sigler was diagnosed around age 20, but hid her illness while starring as Meadow Soprano (Tony Soprano's daughter) on HBO's "The Sopranos."

Webster’s Dictionary defines MS as: a disease of the nervous system that causes the gradual loss of muscle control. But for anyone experiencing #multiplesclerosis  on a daily basis, you know that’s only half the story. Read more about some of the odd, unexpected symptoms that the MS community experiences on the latest blog from our friends at MultipleSclerosis.net. http://bit.ly/1ZleIzf
