What MS is, and who suffers from it How MS is diagnosed as possible, probable or definite Why the disease affects different people in different ways Differences between relapsing-remitting MS and progressive MS Adapting homes, careers and lifestyles to cope with the disease Treatments currently available.

Combining current and authoritative medical advice and practical hands-on tips, Multiple Sclerosis is an invaluable guide for anyone affected by this complex disease.
