Multiple sclerosis is a devastating neurological disease that affects millions of people worldwide. Symptoms include abnormal fatigue, impaired vision, hearing problems, loss of balance and muscle coordination, slurred speech, tremors, cognitive problems, partial or complete paralysis, and many other serious difficulties and disorders. Research has revealed a great deal about the possible causes of MS—environmental factors, ethnicity, age, and more—yet it remains one of the most baffling diseases to confront medical science.

Written for the professional and layperson alike, this resource contains more than 500 entries covering the etiology, research, treatment, symptoms, causes, and lifestyle issues related to the disease.

  • Allergies and MS
  • Childhood MS
  • Cognitive dysfunction
  • Environmental triggers
  • Forms of MS
