Manage Multiple Sclerosis (MS) Relapses
Although there is still no cure for MS, there are now more treatment options than ever to manage MS. Some medications prevent relapses and even change the course of MS. Others help speed recovery from relapses when they happen. Along with medication, there are other things you can do to help you feel better—physically and emotionally. These include healthy lifestyle choices, such as exercise and eating well. They also include self-management techniques, such as monitoring stress and prioritizing time and energy. The more you know about MS and the different ways of managing it, the more control you will have over MS. Your healthcare team will help you design a treatment plan that best fits your unique needs.
