MS affects the nerves in the brain and spinal cord, which means that MS can affect almost any part of the body and its function. Some symptoms are more common than others in MS, and you are unlikely to experience them all yourself.
Some people have symptoms that come and go, or relapse and remit. Others have some symptoms that are stable or worsen over time. Many people find they have a mixture of stable and changing symptoms.
In this section we look at the range of symptoms you might experience with MS, and how your neurologist will investigate your symptoms to give you a diagnosis. We also look at how you can tell whether changes in your symptoms indicate a relapse.
