For patients "in limbo" is there a way to identify if stiffness - especifically leg / hamstring stiffness is MS type spasticity? Thanks.
Spasticity is seen in hundreds if not thousands of disorders. MS is not even close to the top of the list of most common causes of spasticity and there is nothing specific about the spasticity seen in MS patients.
