This is a clear guide to symptom management for all patients with multiple sclerosis. The purpose is to assist persons with multiple sclerosis in understanding their symptoms and treatment options. It is aimed at patients with multiple sclerosis and their families. Features include a useful glossary of medical terms related to multiple sclerosis and a set of clear drawings describing exercises and transfers for the multiple sclerosis patient. This is a very useful book for multiple sclerosis patients. Neurologists can recommend it to their patients with confidence. Multiple sclerosis treatment has become very complex, and this book helps neurologists explain options to their patients.
