Med.to feel better: In hospital you will likely receive intravenous medication to bring your disorder under control and then you will be started on a medication you can take either as a pill or shot or both to keep your disorder from worsening and to make you feel better. You may get physical and occupational therapy to help you with strengthening. In hospital your doctors can closely monitor your progress.

So sorry: MS has all ranges of severity. Hopefully yours is mild. Follow your specialist's instructions. All the best.

Multiple Sclerosis: is a fairly complex syndrome, and presents in a variety of ways on a spectrum. You have a road ahead of you - a very individualized one - at that. The good news is that you are just starting your journey, so your treatment options have yet to be tested. You are going to have up days & down days when you just feel so tired and need rest. Listen to your body - no one understands it better than you.
