The Facts You NeedPaperback - 2002
Multiple Sclerosis-MS-strikes about one in a thousand North Americans, usually in early adulthood, when they are building careers and starting families. In the wholly revised and updated edition of Multiple Sclerosis: The Facts You Need, readers will find a fact-filled, comprehensive guide to living with MS. The accessible text is supported by diagrams, case histories, a drug table and an extensive list of helpful books and organizations. Topics include: what MS is, and who gets it; how MS is diagnosed as 'possible,' 'probable' or 'definite'; why the disease affects different people in different ways; how 'relapsing-remitting' MS differs from 'progressive' MS; how people with MS, and their families, can adapt their homes, careers and lifestyles to cope with the disease; which treatments work, which don't and what is on the horizon. This edition of Multiple Sclerosis has been revised to incorporate new findings related to the diagnosis and treatment of MS, including very early as well as more advanced disease. Additional information has also been included on the treatment of fatigue among other symptoms.
