Can doctors really predict a persons course of ms?

Hi Everyone,

Sorry for my crystal ball questions but unfortunately i can't switch off the "continuously thinking about ms button" :roll:

The Three (Yes – Three) Stages of MS

The Three (Yes – Three) Stages of MS

Two men, one American and an Indian were sitting in a bar drinking shot after shot.

The Indian man said to the American, "You know my parents are forcing me to get married to this so called homely girl from a village whom I haven't even met once." We call this arranged marriage.

I don't want to marry a woman whom I don't love... I told them that openly and now have a hell lot ...

I watched her struggle with the disease for 15 years before it took her life I know they say it wasn't actually the ms that did it was actually an aorta aneurism but the ms was a contributing factor. From what I understand from her nuerologist ...
