MRI + Lesion Patterns -- Question

Does anyone know if there is any correlation between Lesion patterns and types of MS? or severities of MS?

Tracksuits

The UK MS Society is selling tracksuits. Is it just me, but I wouldn't be seen dead in a tracksuit advertising that I had MS. Also, given that mobility problems etc are common - when would one wear such a costume? At the tennis club, playing football etc?
