Just my quick 2-cent response to Dom's comment,
The public perception of science is woefully inadequate and I wouldn't expect everyone to have a detailed understanding about what MS is, but we are repeatedly told that MS is the most common cause of neurological disability in young people.
Science is a big mystery to most of the general public, but I don't think even the scientists
have an understanding of MS. I'm not so sure that it is a neurological disease. Yes, some major symptoms seem to fall within the jurisdiction of neurology; does that mean chicken pox is a disease within dermatology?!!! The CAUSE
needs to be investigated and found!! My eternal frustration!!!
