There isn’t a single MS guide book to follow when you have Multiple Sclerosis. It would be handy if there were. Consulting a Multiple Sclerosis guide book would be an excellent way to get answers to all your questions about MS without searching multiple places. Instead, an abundance of MS resources are supplied by the National MS Society, the MS Foundation, and individual chapters placed around the world.

During an initial diagnosis, most MS patients obtain an assortment of info from their doctor; pamphlets, lists of support groups, locations where information is readily accessible, and details on any medications prescribed. Your doctor is actually an excellent source for MS info and the perfect person to ask questions to. If you are unable to contact your doctor directly and instead of trying to remember the questions you had in mind, information on MS can be collected from other sources as well.

A myriad of books, magazines, and various other forms of publication focus on key points about MS. Any of this literature can be used to find answers about MS symptoms, what to expect with different types and stages of MS, and any future difficulties you might face. If you aren’t much for reading material, then opting to listen to an audio recording or watch an educational video on MS are two additional options. Libraries and a number of MS websites can provide these materials for free to those who need them.

The advancements in technology enable a homebound person with MS to access a plethora of information online, such as guide books for MS patients or autobiographies written by people with MS. These can be downloaded and saved for later, emailed to friends and family members, transferred to a disk for sharing or storing as a reference source, or they can be printed off to read at your leisure.


How Support Groups Guide Newly Diagnosed MS Patients


Support groups don’t necessarily have to be located right down the road from you. They can also be found online, where people can chat with one another, share news about upcoming MS medications or research breakthroughs, or to read other posts by people diagnosed with MS.

Attending an MS support group in your town or nearby city, will give you more one-on-one contact with others, which can be extremely beneficial. Whether you physically attend a support group for MS patients or join an online version, obtaining an MS guide is possible. Most support groups have plenty of information to share with others, even with those who don’t have MS, but who are interested in the disease. However you are able to receive your Multiple Sclerosis guide, be sure to ask any questions about something you don’t understand. This is the best way to get as much accurate information as possible.
