Multiple Sclerosis (MS), article, e-Medicine Consumer Health :"The symptoms of MS can be different from person to person. Visual, sensory, and motor signs and symptoms are all part of MS. Some people have mild cases of MS with little or no disability. Others have full-blown MS that confines them to a bed or wheelchair. Still others are only diagnosed with MS after their death and live their entire lives symptom free. This variability makes it extremely difficult to diagnose MS. Often the signs and symptoms are mistaken as psychiatric in origin."

Multiple Sclerosis (MS), comprehensive site, Healingwell.com :"About half of people with MS experience cognitive impairments such as difficulties with concentration, attention, memory, and judgment. Such impairments are usually mild, rarely disabling, and intellectual and language abilities are generally spared. Heat may cause temporary worsening of many MS symptoms."

Multiple Sclerosis (MS), Women's Health, Imaginis.com :"The initial symptoms of multiple sclerosis are typically: difficulty in walking, abnormal sensations such as numbness or a feeling of "pins and needles", and pain and loss of vision due to optic neuritis (inflammation of the optic nerve)."

Multiple Sclerosis (MS), Signs and Symptoms, Multiplesclerosis.com :"When a person with MS experiences new symptoms, or has a recurrence of old ones lasting more then 24 hours, he or she is experiencing an exacerbation, or attack. These symptoms vary from person to person and from time to time in the same person. No two patients have the same complaints and no one develops all of the symptoms."

Multiple Sclerosis (MS), Symptom Chart, National Multiple Sclerosis Society :"Symptoms of MS are unpredictable and vary from person to person and from time to time in the same person. For example, one person may experience abnormal fatigue, while another might have severe vision problems. A person with MS could have loss of balance and muscle coordination making walking difficult; another person with MS could have slurred speech, tremors, stiffness, and bladder problems. While some symptoms will come and go over the course of the disease, others may be more lasting."

Multiple Sclerosis (MS), Information, NIH Neurological Institute :"Symptoms of MS may be mild or severe and of long duration or short and appear in various combinations. The initial symptom of MS is often blurred or double vision, red-green color distortion, or even blindness in one eye. Most MS patients experience muscle weakness in their extremities and difficulty with coordination and balance. Most people with MS also exhibit paresthesias, transitory abnormal sensory feeling such as numbness or "pins and needles." Some may experience pain or loss of feeling. About half of people with MS experience cognitive impairments such as difficulties with concentration, attention, memory, and judgment. Such impairments are usually mild, rarely disabling, and intellectual and language abilities are generally spared. Heat may cause temporary worsening of many MS symptoms."
