Addressing the Uncertainty of Multiple Sclerosis
Having accessed this web site, you are likely a patient, family member or friend searching for some certainty in understanding Multiple Sclerosis (MS). MS is the most common chronic disabling disease of young adults.
As you pursue this goal, the best way to avoid frustration is to acknowledge at the outset that MS is more notable for its uncertainties.
Uncertainty...is the diagnosis correct?
Uncertainty...what will be my clinical course?
Uncertainty...which immunomodulatory medication should I take?
Uncertainty...does the dose matter?
Uncertainty...how much do neutralizing antibodies matter?
Uncertainty...how much do these medications decrease long term disability?
Uncertainty...what do I do if I have a relapse?
Uncertainty...how will this affect my employment?
Uncertainty...how will this affect my family?
Acknowledging these uncertainties defines the mission and philosophy of our MS clinic. We are here to minimize the uncertainties and assure that each patient’s treatment and support is optimal.
