MS: What People Don't See (Infographic)

Posted on October 04, 2016

Below the surface, living with MS can mean days spent in bed, missed appointments, and alternate days when we seem "fine." There's so much more to multiple sclerosis than meets the eye. We know that MS comes with hundreds of possible combinations of symptoms, many of which appear invisible to outsiders. Most people don't see the many symptoms we experience.

On MyMSTeam.com, the social network and online support group for people living with multiple sclerosis, members discuss the chronic nature of the disease and its hidden symptoms. MyMSTeam has grown to reach 100,000 members and members have shared over 10 million conversations about life with MS! Throughout the year we will share themes we see come up time and time again on MyMSTeam. We chose the image of an iceberg to represent MS symptoms because the life-impacting implications of an MS diagnosis aren't obvious on the surface. Please share to spread MS awareness!



This list is by no means exhaustive. What symptoms would you add?

COGNITIVE CHALLENGES are my most disabling symptoms and no one can see them!
