Here is My Question:
Can MS start late in life? I am experiencing hand dexterity issues.
MS can certainly start late in life, although this is uncommon. Problems with hand dexterity in the elderly or even middle aged adult can be caused by a multitude of different problems. I am not sure why you are concerned about MS, based on the information provided, but a good neurologist should be able to figure out the reason for your problem.
