Assessment tools are a key to provide you with the tools needed to help you understand and assess treatment options to managing MS effectively.

MS Assessment Tool

Using this tool, you will compare your scores from six months ago with today. After you receive your assessment score, it’s critical to take your results to your doctor and discuss them thoroughly, as other tests and evaluations may be needed.

Common and Less Common Symptoms

Over the course of the disease, some symptoms will come and go, while others may be more lasting.  If you suspect you may have MS, please consult a neurologist who specializes in MS.
