more Basics for a New Patient & Family.

The encyclopedia needs updating with allof the medicalwords,jargon and abbreviations.

A how to get diagnosed and the MacDonald Scale and Diability scales would be very helpful.

Also theories section- AutoImmune vs CCSVI explained.

It took me a long time....too long to undestand the disease and most of it was not from here and all of that should be here

Thanks
