An MS diagnosis can be extremely difficult to come to grips with. All of a sudden there is a lot of new information to absorb, questions that need to be asked and key decisions that need to be made for people with MS, their carers and loved ones.
What's more, the majority of people diagnosed with MS are diagnosed in their early adult years, often a vital time for establishing a career, studying, buying your first home or starting a family.
Being informed about MS, what treatments are available and what support networks exist can help. Furthermore, no two cases of MS are the same, so understanding your body and your specific symptoms is just as important as understanding the disease and how it behaves, so you can find the treatment that is right for you.
Here you will find information about how to improve your quality of life with MS. Whether you've been living with MS for a long time or are newly diagnosed.
