When something affects your life as strongly as MS does, it's natural to want to know as much as possible about it. Of course, your MS health care team will always know what's the best thing for you as an individual with MS, but there are limits to the time you can spend getting answers from them. In-depth research can help fill in background and guide you on where to ask your health professionals for more information.
You've already found one good source of information right here. Along with these features, we have articles on MS and other conditions and on the medications used to treat them. There is also information on treatment options, questions to ask your doctor, the latest news on MS, and a toll-free information line.
For print resources, the Multiple Sclerosis Society of Canada has a considerable library of information, including print articles and videos as well as a newsletter. The MS International Federation also has a good selection of resources, including publications. Both sites also present information that is immediately available online.
Other sources for information on the Web include:
- The Consortium of Multiple Sclerosis Centres
- The National MS Society (US)
- MSNews Today
Some of these websites are based in the US. They are still useful for information on MS, but it's necessary to bear in mind that pharmaceutical treatment in the US is not entirely the same as in Canada.
