Symptoms of MS

Many of the MS symptoms vary and are often unpredictable. Below are a few of the more common symptoms people living with MS experience:

  • Fatigue
  • Numbness or tingling
  • Visual loss or disturbances
  • Weakness
  • Gait (walking) difficulties
  • Cognitive difficulties

Relapses (exacerbations of symptoms) can last for days to weeks and can either fully resolve or partially resolve. Symptoms may persist and can steadily worsen for those who have progressive disease. These symptoms above can range in degrees in intensity.
