Delightfully nonclinical and refreshingly real.

This book has everything I wanted to know about MS (when I was diagnosed) but was afraid to ask.

My wife's diagnosis with Multiple Sclerosis (MS) set me out to learn about this dread condition, and in my search I found this book. Author Beth Ann Hill began suffering the symptoms of MS in 1995, but it wasn't until 10 doctors and four years later that she received her definitive diagnosis. After that, she also did her research on this dread condition, and this book is the fruit of her work.
As MS is a very individualized condition, Ms. Hall begins by sharing her story of her symptoms and adventures with the medical establishment. After that, she presents all of her information in the form of a series of questions and answers. The Q&As are divided into seven chapters: 1) Defining Multiple Sclerosis, 2) History and Statistics, 3) Symptoms, 4) Diagnosis and Medical Tests, 5) Treatment, 6) Family Issues, and 7) Lifestyle Changes.
But, that's not it. The final section of the book is entitled Suggestions, and has articles on What To Do If You Think You Have MS But Haven't Yet Been Diagnosed, Twenty Things To Do if You Have MS, Suggestions For Friends of MS Patients, and Suggestions For the Spouse Or Significant Other Of An MS Patient. And finally there is a list of MS Clinical Facilities that are affiliated with the National Multiple Sclerosis Society (organized by state), and a glossary of term.
So, if you have reason to believe that you have MS, or have a loved one that you believe has MS, then this is an excellent book for you to get. It has all of its information organized in a friendly, easy-to-read manner that makes it very nice to read. I highly recommend this book to you.
