Depression, trouble walking, vertigo, exhaustion, body pain, numbness, weakness, and vision loss are some of the symptoms that people living with Multiple Sclerosis or MS can experience. Many people who are subject to the above troubles chalk them up as not worth paying any mind to; MS often goes undiagnosed for years.
Actor Clementine Ford (“The L Word,” “The Young and the Restless”) shares that she dealt with MS symptoms for a decade, including sporadic vision loss, before she finally received a diagnosis from her doctor.
"It started when I was 19 or 20. I would lose sight in one of my eyes when I was jogging outside when it was hot," said Ford. People with MS can have adverse reactions to heat.
