Here is the definitive guide for anyone concerned with multiple sclerosis–those who have the disease, those who share their lives with someone who has it, and healthcare professionals involved with its management. Multiple Sclerosis: The Questions You Have–The Answers You Need covers a wide range of topics in a question and answer format that is readily accessible and easily understood. Its format mimics the collaborative relationship between MS patients and their healthcare professionals. Experienced clinicians provide answers to the questions that they have been asked repeatedly. The questions themselves offer a model and a vocabulary for those who are not certain what questions to ask or how to ask them. Plus, readers can quickly find information about specific topics and questions based on their individual needs.

Each chapter contains a list of references and recommended reading for those interested in pursuing more detailed information on a particular topic. The guide also contains a comprehensive glossary of all terms commonly used in MS management, as well as a list of relevant resources for individuals with MS and their families. The chapter on treatments describes all medications commonly used in the treatment of MS and the management of its symptoms.
