Multiple sclerosis (MS) is a progressive disease of the central nervous system. It affects approximately 1 million people in the US and is most commonly diagnosed between the ages of 20 and 50 years, largely in women. MS causes a variety of motor and nonmotor symptoms and can have devastating effects on productivity and quality of life. This program will review the signs and symptoms of MS to best facilitate early referral for comprehensive neurologic work-up and initiation of disease-modifying therapy (DMT). It will also discuss the primary care clinician’s role in coordinating care, counseling on DMT adherence, and managing the comorbidities of MS.
