My 33 year old son was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis. He also has autism. Anyone else with both diagnoses?

Interesting post. I was diagnosed as Autistic at 6 yrs old, confirmed at 13 and 14. I have relatives diagnosed with MS. I was diagnosed with MS in 2001. In August 2011, I mentioned I was Autistic. The diagnosed changed to Neurological Spectrum Disorder. Consequently, I think Autistic persons can manifest the same symptoms of MS. I only have a coupe of brain lesions. Maybe your son has the typical 9 plus lesions. But this was interesting to read your post.
