In brief: MS familial

Hi AshdenG, mutiple sclerosis is a neurological demyelinating disease that occurs in families and predominantly in the northern hemisphere, in temperate zones.
There is a strong suggestion of there being an inherited aspect. You have no symptoms and diagnosis is largely symptomatic, so you could see Neurology now as baseline then q 2yrs or so until/if you develope symptoms thx
