Are MS symptoms always visible?

ANSWER

No. Multiple sclerosis (MS) can change the way you think, feel, and act. Symptoms like memory problems and depression happen because MS affects the way your brain works. Although these problems can have a huge impact on your life, other people may not always know you have them. It�s common for people with MS to look fine on the outside but not feel fine on the inside.
