Publisher's Summary

The words “you have multiple sclerosis” can be very frightening. There is no cure, symptoms are potentially debilitating, and there is no way to prevent it. While a diagnosis often requires ongoing lifestyle adjustments, with the proper treatment it is possible to have a fulfilling life. Understanding the condition and treatment options are the first steps to advocating for yourself or your loved ones living with MS.

In MS Made Simple, Dr. Mitzi J. Williams, a neurologist and MS specialist, shares her expert knowledge of the disease. She explains basic concepts including what MS does to the body, how it’s diagnosed, and what to expect over the course of the disease. She also covers topics including MS in African Americans, the importance of research participation, and the need for collaboration with your health-care team to continue the work toward seeing a world free of MS.

Excellent Introduction to MS

A family member was just diagnosed with MS. I could have spent hours researching the disease online, but I am really glad I chose this book instead. The author clearly is an expert and experienced in dealing with questions from patients and family members. Best of all, her narration sounds like Michelle Obama in Becoming, which has to be the best possible way to hear devastating information.

Thnakful for this book and this doctor!

This was an amazing book and this Dr is absolutely amazing! She is so knowledgeable and easy to understand. As a 33 year old Black woman who was just diagnosed with MS after being completely normal, this book has been a Saving Grace! it's so easily digestible but still chalk full of valuable information. I've now shared it with my parents. I'm so thankful to have come across this awesome find and thankful for you Dr Williams!

MS understanding given in a simple way

The articulation of the author was great and keeps you interested in a topic that is boring to most. This book gives you a core understanding of MS and how it effects the person with it.
