Abstract:

Latest estimates from the Multiple Sclerosis Society say there are approximately 100,000 people in the UK living with multiple sclerosis (MS). Once such a diagnosis would have meant the sufferer facing a bleak future, but research is being done all the time and knowledge of this complex and unpredictable illness is growing. Written by an author who was diagnosed with MS nine years ago, this comprehensive guide covers all aspects of the condition. Aimed at those who have been recently diagnosed and those who've had the disease for a while, this book explains what MS is, the symptoms and how it is diagnosed, treatments, other physical complications and how it will affect different areas of a sufferer's life. Information is also given for those who are working with or caring for a person who has MS. Whether you have the condition yourself, is a carer, or just someone who wants to know more about the illness, tis essential guide gives all the basic facts in a straightforward and friendly manner.
