Physical symptoms of MS might commonly include problems with vision, balance, bladder, bowel, speech, swallowing and tremor. Other symptoms might include dizziness, fatigue, stiffness and spasms.
MS can affect memory and thinking, and also have an impact on emotions. Like all MS symptoms, you might experience this in varying degrees, or not at all.
Sexual function for both men and women can also be affected for people living with MS. There are ways to manage these symptoms, and the more you and your partner understand what’s causing them, the better you can tackle them.
There are a variety of ways to manage symptoms, ranging from pharmacological treatments to non-medicinal strategies such as physiotherapy, occupational therapy, exercise programs and alternative and complementary treatments. Speak to your neurologist to get the best treatment.
