Varies, but often: The disease can present with loss of vision in one eye, electrical tingling on bending the neck, unexplained imbalance or falling, leg weakness and/or spasticity, bladder incontinence, fatigue, double vision, and problems with intellectual function. This can be isolated or grouped, and in 85% if pts symptoms come on rapidly and slowly remit, i.e., relapsing-remitting ms. Start rx asap.
