Re: Smoking and MS

My neurologist has told me often that smoking causes ovoid plaques....

We do not post links here, but there is information out there on how this takes place; and you most certainly can ask your doctor to show you.

Smoking, and MS dont mix....now, that being said...many MSers smoke. Its more likely they will develop lung issues (Pulmonary problems) than make their MS worse, however the effects of smoking long term can definately show up on a MRI.
