Although Multiple Sclerosis wasn’t first recognized as a specific disease until the 1870’s in England and the United States, neurological symptoms that were likely evidence of MS have been documented for far longer.  The National MS Society provides a great history of the study of MS symptoms, the identification of MS as its own disease, and the many treatments doctors provided over the decades before our current therapies were developed.  Check it out in this printable PDF file:
