Muscular Dystrophy vs Multiple Sclerosis


Recent Posts



If you have one of the many forms of Muscular Dystrophy, chances are good that you’ve been asked about your rare disorder thousands of times. Even worse, is when people assume things without asking. And chances are, even after you’ve clearly explained that you have Muscular Dystrophy, some people will still continue to confuse it with other disorders – especially Multiple Sclerosis. If you’ve experienced this, you know how frustrating it can be.

So next time someone gets it wrong, point them to this quick reference guide. We hope this is will help shed some light on how Muscular Dystrophy (MD) is very different than Multiple Sclerosis (MS), and that even though the two may look similar on the surface, they are vastly different disorders.
