Multiple sclerosis (MS) is usually diagnosed between the ages of 20 and 45, often a time in life when a person’s career is just getting started or in full swing. 
Although most people with MS are employed when they are first diagnosed, many of the symptoms of MS, particularly fatigue and difficulty concentrating, can make holding down a traditional job difficult; it’s estimated that 70 percent of people with MS leave their job within 10 years of their diagnosis, according to the MS International Federation’s Global MS Employment Report 2016.
Just as every person experiences the symptoms and progression of MS differently, the way the disease impacts work can vary widely from person to person. New research, published September 14, 2019, in Journal of Health Psychology, explored how the factors that drive a person with MS out of the workplace differ by age.
