Living With Multiple Sclerosis
An important part of living with multiple sclerosis (MS) is choosing which type of treatment is right for you. Some of the options include:
- Medications to reduce flare-ups, modify the course of the disease, suppress the immune system, or reduce symptoms
- Physical or occupational therapy to help preserve remaining function
- Support to deal with the emotions that often come with MS, such as depression.
The approach you take will depend on the type and severity of your MS symptoms, among other factors. Together with your healthcare team, you can go over the options to come up with a treatment plan for your unique situation.
