What are the symptoms of benign multiple sclerosis?

Symptoms of benign multiple sclerosis (MS) are similar to those of any other type of MS. They are generally milder, less frequent and may completely clear up between attacks though. Multiple sclerosis damages the protective layer of fatty myelin around your nerves, leaving them at risk. This can happen anywhere throughout your nervous system, which means the symptoms will vary depending on where your system is damaged. However, with benign MS your sense of sight and touch are most commonly affected. This often results in blurred vision and/or numbness.
