MS affects everyone differently, but everyone wants
better control of their MS

You and your doctor can work together to identify your goals and help you live life on your terms.

Typically, your doctor’s goal is to stop 3 important changes that
happen with MS:

Disability Progression

As disability progression continues over time, it
becomes harder for your brain to repair itself and
adapt to neurological changes.

MS Relapses

Relapses can contribute to disability progression,
especially if you don’t recover completely.

Disease activity icon

Disease Activity

Lesions found through an MRI (Magnetic Resonance
Imaging) can show where there is disease activity,
and indicate the chances for relapse and disability

When these 3 activities are stopped, doctors call this "No Evidence of Disease Activity", or for short, NEDA-3.
This means that MS is not presently causing damage, and disability has less chance of getting worse in the future.

It’s important to find a treatment that can help stop activity as early as possible—
the action you and your doctor take today can have a big impact on your tomorrow.

Whether you’re newly diagnosed or think it might be time for a new treatment, talk to your doctor.

Prepare for your next doctor visit

Take the Your MS Questionnaire to put together information about your symptoms, goals and impact of MS on your daily life in the last 6 months.
It may be helpful to ask a loved one or caregiver for their input as you complete the questionnaire.
