Symptoms

MS can cause a wide range of symptoms and tend to manifest between the ages of 17 and 40. Symptoms usually get better, but can linger or come and go. The course of MS is unpredictable; no two persons have exactly the same symptoms. Children with MS are rear; one in three children with MS has cognitive impairment.
