Awareness of MS
A survey by Sue Ryder Care found more people were scared of getting a neurological disorder (45%) than cancer (35%). A quarter of respondents thought that ‘nothing much can be done’ for people with neurological disorders. Almost half (45%) couldn't name a neurological disorder and when asked about MS specifically, two thirds couldn't or were unsure about naming any symptoms (a better response than was seen for similar questions about Huntington's or motor neurone disease).
