ppms new family member ALSO has ms

I am curious as I just found out another family member just diagnosed with Ms as well

1:450 chance in UK getting MS in the general population
1:80 of a son getting it
1:40 of a daughter getting it
1:20 if a sibling gets it, including non-identical twin
1:5 for an identical twin.

Apparently, non-direct relatives are considered irrelevant. My aunt had MS.

Hi janetleigh

I and my Mother both have MS.

My Mother has had it for 35 years and myself 12 so far.

Apparently its only 2% of people who get it passed on by a parent. So I feel very special been in the two percent club!

My eldest brother had MS, his daughter has MS and I have MS.
