Multiple sclerosis (MS) and Alzheimer's disease are both neurological disorders. People with MS often wonder if they are more likely to develop Alzheimer's disease than the general population. Learn the answer here.
Most people with multiple sclerosis (MS) get MRI (magnetic resonance imaging) scans at least annually, if not more often. Fortunately, there is no radiation exposure during an MRI scan, unlike other test, such as CT scans or X-rays.
Smoking has been shown to increase risk of multiple sclerosis (MS), but until recently, the impact of smoking on MS disability and progression was unknown. Research now shows that smoking speeds progression from relapsing-remitting multiple sclerosis to secondary-progressive MS.
White Americans are more likely to get multiple sclerosis (MS), but African Americans experience more severe symptoms from MS. This is despite the fact that black Americans are diagnosed sooner after experiencing symptoms and start treatment with disease-modifying therapy sooner after diagnosis.
A multiple sclerosis (MS) diagnosis can be tricky, as symptoms are common with other diseases and are often vague. However, there are certain characteristics of patients or their symptoms that should make doctors investigate causes other than MS.
Secondary-progressive multiple sclerosis (SPMS) is diagnosed in about half of people who originally had relapsing-remitting MS (RRMS), although disease-modifying drugs may change these statistics. Learn about some signs that RRMS may become SPMS.
