  • Yes it can. There might have been warning signs that were missed, but yes, generally it can.

  • MS can strike anyone out of the blue. There are also many other disorders and combinations of disorders that can mimic MS. Warning signs, not so much. Symptoms build up, some slowly and some suddenly. I have been under a doctor's care for twenty some years for this. Doctors have a lot of conflict in diagnosing MS.
