Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 155470006X, Paperback)

Multiple sclerosis?MS?strikes about one in a thousand North Americans, usually in early adulthood, when they are building careers and starting families. Because the disease involves the central nervous system, its effects are wide-ranging and difficult to predict.

Until the 1990s, we could treat some symptoms of MS but not the disease itself. Now we have several drugs that work against MS, and others are being developed. We still can?t cure MS, but we can slow its progress and diminish its effects.

This fourth edition of Multiple Sclerosis: The Facts You Need is a comprehensive guide to living with MS, 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
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 help is on the horizon

Combining authoritative medical advice and practical hands-on tips, Multiple Sclerosis: The Facts You Need is an invaluable guide for anyone affected, directly or indirectly, by this complex disease.
