Are you the only person in your family to have been diagnosed with multiple sclerosis?
Actually this is quite an important question as many people in the multiple sclerosis community are concerned that others in their family will develop the condition.
Some years ago when I discussed the question with a neurologist they said , rather lamely, that it was genetic in some cases.
So I thought the most useful thing to do would be to ask my readers. This should tell us a bit more about the incidence of multiple sclerosis in families.
Please feel free to add any thoughts you might have about ms and genetics in the comments section below!
