if ms attacks your nervous system, does it also affect your heart?

Does not cause: Ms doesn't directly cause any type of heart disease, and the only effect on the heart might be the slowing of the pulse within the first six hours after taking the oral medicine gilenya, (fingolimod) which does not persist.
