Explaining Multiple Sclerosis

Please read this Disclaimer.

This is a collection of essays about multiple sclerosis, what it is, its different forms, diagnosis, prognosis, symptoms, treaments and other topics.

The intention is to translate the medical understanding of the disease into plain English so that those who have the disease, their families and carers can better understand the condition and how to live with it.

If you have any comments please contact me at or sign my guestbook - I'd love to hear from you. I cannot answer personal health queries - you should discuss these with your GP or neurologist.
