From the Publisher

The diagnosis of multiple sclerosis (MS) poses potential concerns related to all aspects of life and plans for the future. Family members and other loved ones are similarly concerned, and everyone involved struggles to make sense of life with this permanent intruder. One of the first responses is usually an active search for information about the disease itself and its potential long-term effects.

Chapters discuss the nature of MS, its management, and guidelines for dealing with all aspects of the disease and its impact on your life. A chapter on services available from the National Multiple Sclerosis Society, a glossary, a list of resources, and additional reading suggestions make this the place to begin your education about MS.

With education and proper care, most people diagnosed with multiple sclerosis will lead full and productive lives. Multiple Sclerosis: A Guide for the Newly Diagnosed, Third Edition is an essential resource for everything you need to know about MS, and includes new or updated sections on:

The most current medical treatments for the management of MS Complementary and alternative medicine and MS Financial and life planning Children with MS Updated diagnostic criteria ;Foreword; What is Multiple Sclerosis and How is it Diagnosed?; What is the Cause of Multiple Sclerosis?; What Treatment is Available?; Unconventional Therapies; Practical Guidelines for Living with Multiple Sclerosis; Coping with Multiple Sclerosis; Employment Issues; Financial and Life Planning; Research in Multiple Sclerosis: The Search for Answers; Searching for Treatments: The "Ins and Outs" of Clinical Trials; How Your Multiple Sclerosis Society Can Help; Glossary; Additional Readings; Resources; Index.;

Instead of falling into the trap of bombarding the reader with negativity, this [book] instead places great emphasis on how to maintain a positive attitude and live with the condition. It's a refreshing change this is a book for the thinking person wanting a comprehensive and reasonably detailed view of where MS is at the present time must-have for anyone wanting answers and education about MS."-- MS in Focus
