What are alternatives if I'm concerned about what the future may bring if I have multiple sclerosis (MS)?

ANSWER

If you're concerned about what the future may bring, try something called a work self-assessment. You can take online tests to help you figure out if your multiple sclerosis (MS) symptoms could affect your job. These tools can help you decide which changes you need to make now, or which ones you may need to consider down the road.
