Mostly not: Patients with more advanced MS and limited mobility can have pain from joints & contractures. But MS pts have much less physical disability these days with all the disease-modifying therapies of the last 20 years or so. MS pain is often central, i.e. not due to injured tissue; the CNS is giving itself false pain messages. Topical agents won't work for that; you need modern centrally-acting drugs. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Maybe useful: Classic ms diet was swank low fat, a good healthy approach, which may have some modest benefit. Vit d supplements definitely advised, about 5-10, 000 units daily. A b-complex vitamin prep may be of limited benefit, but not clear. Stay active and socialize, get regular sleep, and try to be positive as your depression could become a barrier. Aerobic exercise and stress management are great. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I just got home from hospital being treated for MS flare with solumedrol, (methylprednisolone) my symptoms are back. What should I do? They are just as bad
See neurologist: If your relapse is worsening, you need to find out if it is a steroid treatment failure (if so, you might need course of Acthar or plasmaphereis), but you could possess an infection or metabolic issues, slowing recovery. I do NOT find a specific MS medication listed. I presume you overlooked this, but the best overall approach is prevention via potent agent such as Tysabri (natalizumab) or Gilenya. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

MS varies: MS is a variable illness. About 1/7 cases are very simple, with few attacks and symptoms. Many cases have multiple relapses, some cases result in progressive illness, and some rare cases are very aggressive or difficult to treat. MS has become a much more manageable illness with good outcomes over the past 20-30 years, although there are exceptions too. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers
Suggest you consider: Historically, the low fat swank diet seemed to improve the relapse rate, and two older nutritional studies confirmed a modest effect. A few doctors thought some foods to be harmful and looked at "pulse counting", but this has never been proven. Not a food, but vitamin d supplements seem quite important, as low levels result in worse outcomes. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Symptoms can come & go or move around to different places but eventually ms usually does progress. The one thing they do have in common is that they are neurological diseases and some treatment efforts can be similar. Perhaps a neurologist will say more. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
A phase: We conceive that ms starts with inflammatory attack on the central nervous system, followed by a less intensive but gradually deteriorating process which is termed degenerative. So, the original relapsing-remitting course transforms at some point to a secondary progressive process. Without treatment 90% proceed by 20 yrs. Yet, potent and early treatment is designed to prevent the disability. ...Read more
