Multiple Sclerosis Prognosis


Predicting multiple sclerosis is like forecasting the British weather. If you've spent much time on these islands you'll understand how fickle the weather here can be. Weathermen can only give the vaguest of indications of how things may turn out and, even then, only for the next few days. MS is similar - you can say that a number of factors are correlated with a poorer disease outcome but not with a great degree of certainty. Long-term benign disease courses can suddenly become progressive just as malignant courses can suddenly reach plateaux. With MS, nothing is certain.

About Us

Founded in 2004, MS People UK is a community website and discussion forum by and for people with Multiple Sclerosis as well as for friends, families, supporters and those interested in this disabling condition.

If you’re newly diagnosed or want to ask about possible first symptoms, or if you’ve had Relapse Remit, Secondary or Primary Progressive MS for some time, a welcoming group of fellow MS sufferers is here to chat with you about MS symptoms, diagnosis and treatments.

The atmosphere is friendly whilst being compassionate, supportive and caring. Members also post about a variety of subjects not related to MS, as well as share jokes, talk about their hobbies, have fun, and more.

The MS People Forum is not responsible for advice or information supplied by members. We suggest you seek medical advice before trying anything.
