Unlike what some scientists believe the different variations of the disease are at least according to me simple variations, inconsequential in the long term.
It appears for the most part the disease is nondiscriminatory in it's outcome. We can predict with near pinpoint accuracy the eventual outcome for 97% of persons afflicted with this disease. This in part thanks to statistical medicine which is nothing more than vasts amounts of data representing thousands of patient years.
This made possible given our current computer/database resources monitoring hundreds of thousands of patients with the same condition.
We end up with a fairly acurate prognosis.
Turns out it's a blueprint in essence one which spells out when the disease will progress, how long it will take to progress and finally the patient's condition based on the progression.
That is why we have scales such as the Expanded Disability Scale to map, measure, keep track of this vast amount of data collected from MS clinics around the world.
If you disagree that's okay there is nothing absolutely nothing wrong with trying to overcome the symptoms affecting you.
Unfortunately with primary progressive MS there is nothing the doctors can provide to slow the progression not stop it but at least slow it down. In my opinion no matter how slow it progresses it always seems too fast.
