Does anyone have any personal experience of MS or living with someone with the illness?

Yes

Help nurse my step father from 35-47 when he died on illnesses related to MS. His incapacity held off and he wasn't in a wheel chair until 40 and was then bed ridden from 42.

PM or post and I'll get back to you later, I'm a bit pre occupied this afternoon.

Can't offer much in the way of direct experience but going back a few years my best mate's partner succumbed to MS at the age of thirty.

 

Initially she had been diagnosed with a less virulent strain of the disease but after many years of living a relatively normal life it developed into full blown MS. Her decline was rapid - perhaps mercifully so.

Friend suffers from it, years ago he was quite ill, now he is fitter and seems to be mostly without problems. Although he has trouble with balance when tired.

Did you get the information you needed?

It's a bitch of an illness, although things have surely improved with management. Michael the guy who my Mum married after Dad got the illness in the early 80's and died before 2000.

Balance is key and loss of sensory stuff. Bungalows, wide doors, easy use taps and wet rooms help. He got an auto car with hand throttle and brake adaption because cars were his life pre MS.
