In brief: Not necessarily

Ms has been said to shorten life span, and untreated this is correct, but several studies have supported normal life if appropriate potent meds are employed.
Primary progressive ms does not respond well to the usual meds, and mostly symptomatic interventions are used. There are many research projects nowadays, and best to contact a medical school and get involved.
