Patient Comments: Multiple Sclerosis - Treatments

How do you manage your multiple sclerosis?

Comment from: BLT, 45-54 Female (Patient) Published: June 21

I have had multiple sclerosis for 20 years now. I take no kind of medications for it. The worst thing that happens is I get overheated. Over the years I can tell when I get too hot. I run into the shower and cool down, even ask people in their yard to spray me with a hose. I may look funny, but it stops an attack for me.
