Possible MS? Diagnosis can be tricky. It is reasonable to seek a second opinion when the diagnosis is uncertain. Call us for referrals to experienced neurologists in this area. Last year, the Society convened an international task force to create guidelines that can help neurologists distinguish MS from its look-alikes. The paper, published in Multiple Sclerosis (2008 Nov;14:1157–74), is free to practitioners, who may download it at msj.sagepub.com/cgi/content/abstract/14/9/1157.
Help for your head. A diagnosis of MS is a personal and family crisis in anyone’s terms. Now, finding good professional support for emotional health has just become a bit easier. The Society is partnering with HelpPRO, a referral service for people seeking a qualified professional provider. Visit helppro.com for information about who practices in our area.
