I wonder if the issue could be neurotransmitter disruption, like dopamine. Or, could it be damage to a part of the brain that regulates body functions. I think if it were only traumatic injury, then we would not see the vast differences in MS rates. I've never had brain injury, but was in a non-injury car accident a few weeks before my first symptom.
