Abstract

There is a substantial burden of illness associated with MS when compared to normative HRQOL data. This was more pronounced in physically- than in mentally-oriented domains. Assessment of HRQOL provides a valuable complement to the EDSS by providing information about the patient perception of function and HRQOL beyond that which can be obtained by physical assessment alone.
