Multiple Sclerosis Society of Canada

Young People with MS

While MS is most often diagnosed in young adults, aged 20 to 49, we know that it affects children, some as young as three years old. MS varies from person to person in terms of its symptoms and disease course. Regardless of the person’s age, the symptoms of MS can be much the same. What is very different though, are the unique concerns related to the different times of life during which MS is experienced.
