    DescriptionVoted 5 star by the Multiple Sclerosis (MS) Society What is multiple sclerosis? Are there any treatments for multiple sclerosis? How can I stay as well as possible? Multiple sclerosis (MS) is the most common disease of the central nervous system affecting young adults. A recent MS Society survey indicated that there are at least 100,000 people living with MS in the UK. Only 20 years ago, a diagnosis of MS was assumed to mean a bleak future. Thankfully, times have changed. There is still no cure for MS, but due to ongoing research, new and better treatments have been developed. More is also understood about the role lifestyle can play in symptom management. Most people diagnosed with MS can live as long as anybody else. If you, or someone you know, is diagnosed with MS, it is important to remember that no two people with will experience the same symptoms. Use this book like a toolbox, pick out the relevant parts - you may never need the rest. There is no denying that a diagnosis of MS will bring changes. But with the right medical treatment, support and advice, you can find your own unique balance between having this chronic condition and having a life. Author: Leonie Martin
