Read this headline carefully. It reports that walking takes the “first hit,” but that doesn’t mean it’s the first MS symptom people experience.
My first symptoms involved vision, fatigue, and hand strength. But true to the study, as my disease progressed, my walking decreased without any real decline in hand or arm function. Was it the same for you?

This is probably a good idea. I can remember having a few urinary symptoms prior to my diagnosis, but I can’t remember being asked about them during the diagnostic process.

The study, “Lower urinary tract dysfunction in patients with multiple sclerosis: A post-void residual analysis of 501 cases,” was published in the journal Multiple Sclerosis and Related Disorders.
