When you (or someone you love) are first diagnosed with multiple sclerosis (MS), your mind becomes crowded with a thousand questions: What is MS? How will it affect me? Will I still be able to live a normal life?

In this section of Someone Like Me, we’ll attempt to answer some of the questions you might have about MS and the impact it will have on your life. We’ve included information on a whole range of issues—everything from pain management to balancing work or school with MS. Browse around, and if you have questions that you don’t see answered here you can always post on our message boards or use the contact form to email us and ask for more information.
