Multiple Sclerosis (MS) - What Happens
If you want to donate
blood, talk to your doctor about whether it is safe for you to give blood. Find out
about local blood donation guidelines.
Because MS may affect your ability to move and walk, it
can place limits on your daily living, particularly as you age. Many people
with MS have some disability, but it is not always severe or constant. On
average, people diagnosed with MS live another 30 years or more. A few people
have a severe course of MS and die earlier.
If you or someone in
your family has MS, talk to your doctor about
how MS may affect daily living. Knowing what to expect will help you plan
for the future.
