Fully revised and updated with the latest information. Multiple sclerosis (MS) strikes about one in 1,000 North Americans, usually in early adulthood, when they are building careers and starting families. Because the disease involves the central nervous system, its effects are wide-ranging and difficult to predict. Multiple Sclerosis is a fact-filled, comprehensive guide to living with MS. In this updated and revised edition, Dr. Paul O'Connor presents the latest information on treatments, including the promising new drug, natalizumab. Other topics include: • What MS is, and who gets it • How MS is diagnosed • Why the disease affects different people in different ways • How “relapsing-remitting” MS differs from “progressive MS” • How people with MS, and their families, can adapt their homes, careers, and lifestyles to cope with the disease • Which treatments work, which don't, and what help is on the horizon
