Reputable resources: I suggest that my patients spend time exploring the following websites: NMSS.org MSAA.org You may also get information from the MS societies in the UK and Canada. Please understand that the phenotype of MS is highly variable. Some patients are seemingly unaffected and others are profoundly disabled. Do not assume that the person with MS will experience all of the symptoms you read about.

No cure at this time: It is difficult to develop a cure when the cause of a condition is not fully understood. There seem to be several factors that contribute to the development of MS but there is no ONE gene or ONE virus that has been implicated as a direct cause. Rather, the interaction of genetic susceptibility and infectous and/or environmental factors seem to result in dysregulation of the immune system.

??: Why do you inquire about this? A diagnosis of MS typically requires specialized testing performed by a neurologist.
