Has anybody else notice an unusual amount of people being diagnosed with MS in the past few years. I mean a lot of Gen Xer’s. I wonder if they all have an underlying precursor.
Baby Boomers: Baby boomers were born between 1946 and 1964. They’re currently between 57-75 years old (71.6 million in the U.S.) Gen X: Gen X was born between 1965 and 1979/80 and is currently between 41-56 years old (65.2 million people in the U.S.) Gen Y: Gen Y, or Millennials, were born between 1981 and 1994/6. Oh, and there is Gen Z and Gen Alpha (who subsequently will be the wealthiest of all).
So, what is going on? I first noticed this as a Gen X in the late 80s, early 90s. I had friends who were actually very young boomers who at 29 diagnosed were diagnosed with MS (Multiple Sclerosis), usually around age 29ish. Over the years I’ve known several that have been diagnosed from late ‘Boomers’ to ‘Early Zer’s’. I just wonder what the correlation is. Maybe in science we are not looking in the right direction. Just curious if anyone else has notice this?
Question to my readers, do you or someone you know have MS? May ask what age diagnosed? Symptoms?
I feel like this is a health situation that really needs to be brought to the forefront. I can’t explain it. But, we are supposed to be talking about it now.
