Description
This book is a guide for everyone concerned with the disease, those who have MS and those who share their lives with someone who has it. It covers a wide range of topics in an accessible question and answer format that allows people to easily find the information they need while providing a model of successful communication with healthcare providers. The contributors are leading authorities in all areas of multiple sclerosis management, who proffer expert answers to the most common questions about living with MS, medical, emotional, social, and economic, and represents a interdisciplinary approach to the disease. The books' goal is to help those with MS and their families formulate questions to ask their healthcare providers so they can manage life with MS. The chapters cover topics ranging from neurology and treatment to emotional, sexual, and employment issues. Introductory material is followed by a series of questions most often asked of the authors in their work with MS. The new edition has been thoroughly revised and updated throughout. All the chapters have been reviewed and revamped. The book provides the most current information on Multiple Sclerosis including a review of the controversy surrounding chronic cerebrospinal venous insufficiency (CCVSI) and Multiple Sclerosis. It contains a discussion of the first two pills in development for Multiple Sclerosis (up to this point all Multiple Sclerosis treatment have been injectable), new information on the drug Tysabri, and discussion of other newly developed drugs and drugs that currently under development. -- Provided by publisher.
Description
This book is not just for people with MS and their families, friends, and colleagues. It is for everyone. With one in 750 people living with MS, each of us knows, knows of, or will know someone with MS. We all have questions about MS that we need answered. This book asks questions and gives answers. The simplicity of the "Q and A" approach serves many purposes. The questions are set out from the rest of the text in their own font and bolded typeface; they make it easy to flip through a chapter to find exactly what one is looking for. There is solid factual information. See, for example, the chapters on the disease and its epidemiology and on the ADA, FMLA, SSDI, and PASS. It offers advice on communication, planning for the future, and sexuality as wells as on parenting, family dynamics, and how to bank and budget energy. -- Provided by publisher.
