Planning and Caring for a Loved One Diagnosed with MS

Planning and Caring for a Loved One Diagnosed with MS

Multiple sclerosis (MS) is a disabling disease of the central nervous system that interferes with the brain’s ability to send information to the body. The symptoms are varying and no two people have the exact same symptoms. Diagnosis can be difficult and some people can be misdiagnosed for years before MS is found to be the likely cause of their problems. More than 2.3 million people worldwide are affected by MS. Most people are diagnosed between the ages of 20 and 50, but MS can affect children and even older adults. The videos below were created by national experts speaking on some of the issues that arise when planning for, or living with, someone you love who has MS.

I hope you find these videos helpful. Call my office to arrange a consultation to discuss how I can help you and your family deal with current or future issues that arise when dealing with MS.
