Video Text
In the early stages of MS, people often experience:
* Muscle weakness
* Tingling or numbness
* Loss of balance
* Blurred or double vision
* And/or eye pain.
As the disease progresses, other symptoms may appear, such as:
* Muscle stiffness
* Heat sensitivity
* Fatigue
* Pain
* Difficulty thinking clearly
* And sexual problems.
The symptoms of multiple sclerosis generally appear between the ages of 20 and 40. It's important to know that MS can begin so mildly that a person doesn't even notice any symptoms until the disease has progressed. Also, the symptoms vary from person to person, and can change over time.
