THE MULTIPLE SCLEROSIS SOCIETY OF WESTERN AUSTRALIA (INC.)
There can be a real sense of shock, disbelief and even a sense of loss of control. There is also that perception that this means disability and wheelchairs; yet this is increasingly becoming a misconception for many, especially since the advent of better treatments and earlier interventions.
One of the best ways to come to terms with this life changing news is to seek out quality information, so you can understand more realistically what this means for you. However, remember that MS is a very individual disease with many signs and symptoms, so what you read can be overwhelming and may not be relevant to your specific case.
About Us seeks to provide you with an overview of MS, how it is diagnosed and treated and what symptoms may present challenges to you.
We hope you find the information interesting and helpful and we have included an articles and links section in there to guide you to credible and quality information as you seek to become empowered, through gaining knowledge and acquiring skills and supports to move ahead and adjust to this challenge.
If you would like any additional information or have any questions, please contact us or phone 9365 4888 and ask to speak to one of our MS nurses. If we don’t know, we can ask an expert and get back to you.
This includes; nursing, facilities, therapy and much more.
Many symptoms are invisible and can appear suddenly.
