Multiple Sclerosis Foundation answeredMost people with multiple sclerosis (MS) will have a normal or near-normal life expectancy. They are more likely to die from other causes, such as heart disease, stroke, or cancer, than from MS. Death caused directly by MS is highly unusual. However, there are variants of MS that can be very aggressive and potentially shorten life. These are not the norm. MS tends to affect quality of life, not quantity of life.
