Multiple Sclerosis is a disease a mystery writer would love: it seemingly appears out of nowhere, its signs can be so subtle they are not recognized, and its symptoms can become more severe and more frequent in some people, while others suffer only one or two mild episodes throughout their lives. Today, the mystery of MS is unraveling, with new disease-modifying medications, more sophisticated diagnostic tests, and better, easier, more comfortable adaptations for an improved quality of life both at work and at home. Multiple Sclerosis: A New Journey takes you through the newest research and treatments to help you find a straight course for your disease. Inside this one easy-to-understand, cross-referenced, and compassionate volume, you will find everything you and your loved ones need to know about diagnosis, symptoms, progression, disease-modifying therapy, rehabilitation, disability awareness, and more. You will find, in short, everything you need to lead a better and more independent life.
