Multiple Sclerosis And Accidents

I have received a question about if it can be caused from an accident.  Multiple Sclerosis is an autoimmune disorder.  It can't, but, it is caused by inflammation, normally from the body attacking it's own cells.  It's possible to have risk factors and not know and an accident can bring those to the attention of the physician treating you.  Also, it is possible for the inflammation to increase from an accident pushing the hidden disease into focus.  Also, it is possible your physician is wrong, it is called practicing medicine for a reason.  Try a second opinion.  But, as I stated before, you could have had hidden factors the accident brought to the attention of your physician.  Stay Informed!
