Needless to say no one understands the stress, depression and confusion I have been feeling so I thought I would see if I can get some support from this forum.
How do we know that genes are not the only factor in determining who gets MS? The identical twin of a person with MS has a 1 in 4 chance of developing the disease. The fact that identical twins of people with MS—who share all the same genes—don’t always get MS, and that more than 80% of people with MS do not have a first-degree relative with MS, demonstrates conclusively that MS is not directly inherited and that factors other than genetics must be involved.
