How to Prevent MS flare-ups
Multiple sclerosis is a condition that affects a person’s brain and spinal cord. What it does is it attacks the myelin fibers, or fibers that protect the nerves. This causes communication problems between the brain and the other organs in the body.
Multiple sclerosis can also get worse over time, especially if nothing is done about it. At the moment, MS is not a curable disease. But people with MS can take steps in order to better manage their condition and slow down the progression of the disease.
One way of doing this is to prevent and make sure to keep your flare-ups under control. Here are 5 things to remember :
1. Take your medication regularly
This is by far the most important thing that you should remember. The medication prescribed for patients with MS don’t cure the disease, but they help slow down the progression of the disease. In addition, medication also reduces the risk of having a relapse in the future.
So if you have MS, be sure to take your medication in the right dosage and at the right time. It’s also a good idea to observe how your body reacts to the medication, and if you see any improvement. This can help your doctor know if your medication is effective or if needed, they can change your medication and increase the dosage.
