ThJuland's Dell

This Multiple Sclerosis Glossary represents most of the data I accumulated, during my struggles against the fear, lies, and frank callousness of too many *professionals*. :(

Luckily, I had always been an avid reader and successfully won my diagnosis. Yes, I finally did find a competent Neurologist (with a Ph.D.) and I am a very happy MSer. Smiley Please contact me, if you do not find the information you seek.

MS Glossary

The complete glossary has grown to over 210KB, and takes some time to load, so I have sectioned it into parts by alphabetical letter, and added this hyper-linked index.

You may select the complete glossary above, choose a page letter, or browse the index below and go directly to that section. All pages are hyper-linked, so you can easily navigate back and forth and even go back again, in any order.
