It might help if everyone knows what an EDSS is.
Here's a link to the Kurtzke Expanded Disability Status Scale, along with a description of how it's used and its limitations, as well as links to other scales.

Personally, none of my doctors has ever mentioned the term EDSS, although it's pretty normal for humans to want to quantify everything and it's kinda interesting to try to figure one's rating.
One of the issues I have with MS scales like this and the MSQOL test (MS Quality of Life) is that there's no way to separate the MS issues from one's other medical/age related problems. I had a research group give me that MSQOL test a while back when I had a broken toe. Totally skewed the results.
Good health to all!
