    Dear angel,

    You can start by reading the links listed at the top of this page: The Multiple Sclerosis Health Center, Videos, and FAQs.

    Also type these organizations' names into your internet search box:


    The National Multiple Sclerosis Society
    The Multiple Sclerosis Association of America
    The Multiple Sclerosis Foundation
    The Multiple Sclerosis Resource Centre in the UK
    Mayo Clinic
    Cleveland Clinic
    National Institutes of Health (NIH)
    National Institutes of Neurological Disorders and Stroke (NINDS)

    There are many more sources on the internet about MS, too. Visiting these websites will provide you with even more links to info on research, treatments, and studies.

    Hope this helps.

    Kim
