Multiple Sclerosis For Dummies
Multiple Sclerosis For Dummies

Your trusted, compassionate guide to living with MS
Being diagnosed with multiple sclerosis (MS) doesn't mean your life is over. Everyone's MS is different and no one can predict exactly what yours will be like. The fact is, lots of people live their lives with MS without making a full-time job of it.

Multiple Sclerosis For Dummies gives you accessible, easy-to-understand information about what happens with MS - what kinds of symptoms it can cause, how it can affect your life at home and at work, what you can do to feel and function better, and how you can protect yourself and your family against the long-term unpredictability of the disease.

You'll learn how to make treatment and lifestyle choices that work for you, what qualities to look for in a neurologist and the rest of your healthcare team, how to manage fatigue, the pros and cons of alternative medicine, why and how to talk to your kids about MS, stress management strategies, your rights under the Americans with Disabilities act, and so much more.

Reviews ..

This book helped answer many of the questions we had about MS.
I would highly recommend to anyone that has MS or a family
member with MS.

5.0 out of 5 stars MS and all the mysteries of the disease explained in layman terms

A family member has the disease recently diagnosed .. all the scary stories you hear .. well this is the 'real deal' in explaining the disease and the different types .. a great reference! This is one book used by the MS Society.


Good book for someone with ms and also for the family members. Read many MS books and I strongly recommend this book in first edition
