1-Fatigue: Some 80% of people with multiple sclerosis disease will experience fatigue at one point or another, but fatigue can have many causes. Some people experience “MS lassitude,” a very severe fatigue that occurs daily that tends to get worse as the day wears on. “People describe it as unlike anything they’ve ever felt,” says Rosalind Kalb, Ph.D., vice president of the Professional Resource Center at the National multiple sclerosis disease Society in New York Ci
2-Numbness: Numbness (or a lack of sensation in various parts of the body) is often one of the first symptoms of multiple sclerosis disease. Numbness can occur in the face, the body, or the arms and legs, and can interfere with walking, holding on to objects, and even chewing, if the numbness affects the face. Sometimes the feeling—or lack thereof—progresses over hours or days, but it usually subsides on its own.
