Symptoms of MS: There are primary symptoms and secondary symptoms. Primary symptoms are weakness, numbness, trouble with vision, lasting 24-48 hr. These are called attacks. Secondary symptoms are fatigue, tingling, changes in the mood, worse symptoms in hot weather. These can occur every day. These are just examples, the symptoms vary a lot from person to person.
