Many: Ms can present with a host of physical findings including optic neuritis, unilateral weakness and numbness, a band-like sensation around your chest or abdomen, hearing loss, gait ataxia, slurred speech, urinary incontinence, bilateral upper extremity/lower extremity weakness. Typically the initial presentation in the young may be a single symptom (optic neuritis), however hemiparesis is seen.
