No and yes: Does not seem to be much of an ethnic variation in my experience, as i seem to have equal numbers of blacks and whites suffering this disorder. However, do find discrepancies in incidence, as many sources say 500, 000 and others 1.5 million in usa. If we take the latter figure, the proportion of men to women is 3 to 1 (the reverse of ms incidence!).
