The Expert MS Patient

The Consortium of Multiple Sclerosis Centers provides networking and research to health professionals. They also share information with MSers in the format of online videos allowing us to become expert patients. Transcripts of each session are also provided.

The short videos are divided into two sections: the fundamentals and specific topics of concern. Fundamentals covers symptoms, diagnosis, MS effects on the mind, and the future.

Specific topics include fatigue, numbness, pain, effects of heat, balance, leg drags, memory, sex, talking to children, and many others.
Many others. If you have a concern that is not covered in their list, enter your question to be answered by a nurse or doctor from the frequently asked questions.

The videos are presented by nurses who focus on the care of MSers from the International Organization of MS Nurses. This is good information. Check it out.
